LEARNING & TEACHING ACTIVITIES

The programme is based on socio-constructivist pedagogy.

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. Students will use the cases and associated discussions to develop group and individualised learning objectives. 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.


Methods will include problem-based case discussions, group exercises, directed study and reflective discussion.
