LEARNING & TEACHING ACTIVITIES

The programme is based on socio-constructivist pedagogy.
Learning will take place through discussion, reflection and collaboration between students and tutors. Educational materials have been designed to allow students to identify and develop their own learning needs and are presented in a scaffolding framework that builds towards the assessment strategies.


This unit is problem-based. Methods will include problem-based case discussions, group exercises, directed study and reflective discussion. The problem-based learning structure will continue the development of creative, reflective and critical thinking skills that can be used for effective problem-solving and practice development. Students will use the cases and associated discussions to develop group and individualised learning objectives.
