Teaching in Practice

This module takes a blended approach of both face-to-face and online delivery. Your learning experience will be supported by synchronous live on-campus sessions and live online sessions together with asynchronous self-directed study, at your own pace. The use of electronic learning lectures, tutorials, group work and a range of learning resources will help to meet the needs of all learners.

During this module, you will develop expertise in providing high-quality learning opportunities within your area of focus, while considering the interprofessional agenda. You will also critically explore the development of interprofessional education as a concept in health and social care, while also considering equality for all of those involved in the education process.

How you will learn

We use a variety of teaching and learning methods, including a mixture of face to face learning and learning using web-based and electronic tools. You will also take part in group work and reflective practice, which means you’ll consider how you have developed and applied your knowledge.

How you're assessed

Assessment is by your tutors, peers and the group, through a variety of methods, including the reflective portfolios that you develop during the course. When you graduate you will be able to manage and deliver a range of learning activities within practice learning or academic environments.
