The learning outcomes for this module are agreed with your academic supervisor and must be appropriate to the level and the amount of credit sought. In each case you will be required to develop a learning contract outlining a project or practice development that reflects professional and/or personal learning needs and makes a contribution to practice.
Everything you need to know
Individual students will agree a topic area and negotiate a learning contract specifying the aims and learning outcomes with an academic supervisor. The learning contract will culminate in the submission of evidence that demonstrates the achievement of the student’s stated learning outcomes. Evidence may include: literature review, implementation and evaluation of practice guidelines/protocols, production of education or training materials, audio, IT or multimedia materials relevant to practice. Student’s will submit an account incorporated within the evidence, justifying the chosen subject, and reflecting on the key learning that took place and its’ application to practice.
Formative feedback will be provided throughout via an academic supervisor and in particular, in relation to the development of the learning contract
