Teaching and learning
Teaching, learning and assessment reflects the programme's student
centred, patient-centred and practice-focused approach. Each module has an
appropriate division between structured learning activities and private study.
You will have opportunities to share your existing and developing skills,
knowledge and experience. A variety of teaching and learning strategies will be
employed to make the most of the range of experience, skills and knowledge
within the group.
Approach to assessment
You will be assessed in each of the modules. There is a mixture of assessment strategies chosen for their appropriateness to an individual module and programme learning outcomes and content, the academic standard expected and the different styles of learning within the group. Assessments give you an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge as well as the critical and reflective analysis required for professional practice.
Assessments will also provide you with an opportunity to experience a range of post graduate attributes that will prove valuable in your future career.
