Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to Los

The principle source of learning is the workplace and the application of reflective learning. Students will initially develop a learning plan which they will work towards over a 9-12 month period. It covers Los 2,3 and 5. Students are required to reflect on achievements of these objects and review the impact on their learning and synthesise their own conclusions. Learning will therefore be derived from a combination of reflection, experience and observation. Students will complete a personal learning plan, in which they will identify their personal requirements against the learning outcomes and present a plan for achieving sufficient progress in them to meet the required standard. They will then reflect on their objectives monthly, within a learning log, An interim Evaluation is then submitted as a report in week 25, covering Los1-5. A final portfolio submitted in week 44 is the final element of Assessment, covering Los 1-5.

Online directed study will initially help the students to develop their own learning plans, via tutor support, using videos, case studies, online exercises and discussions. The established forums will also enable student sharing of experiences and learning from each other, throughout the duration of the module. Monthly Elluminate sessions will also provide an opportunity for students and tutors to interact and support learning online.

Assessment (formative or summative)

Formative feedback will be given during office hour discussions via Elluminate. Students wishing to receive guidance on completion of their assessment will request feedback during these times.

This will enable you to self-assess your progress and understanding.

Summative assessment will be in the form of learning journals, submitted in templates, containing reflective writing against project objectives and learning outcomes. Assessment criteria will be based on levels of learning attained through compilation of reflective writing against Kirkpatrick levels of learning.

Sample assessments will be available together with model answers and marking schemes to facilitate self-assessment of your knowledge and understanding, and identification of areas of weakness to aid your preparation for assessment.









Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills

Research / teaching linkages

The module reflects current thinking and practice on work-based learning. The module is designed to enable access to academic learning for those who have progressed to this level via an academic tradition, or who have work experience to back up their learning. The programme team will ensure equality and diversity are accounted for within all aspects of delivery.

Research skills are developed in the preparation of materials for the online discussions where you will be required to source, analyse and present information. This is reinforced through the summative assessments in which the report draws on your information retrieval and analysis skills.

Supporting equality and diversity

Materials for the module will be available through the VLE in a variety of formats, thereby enabling you to format these in a style that best matches your needs. Where additional special needs support is required this will be organised on an individual basis and may draw on specialised support such as that available through the Adaptive Technology Centre.

Internationalisation

The approach adopted in the module is international in nature as the students will be experiencing their Work Based Learning in organisations across the world. . This will be supported by reference to international examples and case studies of international organisations. In addition online discussion will draw on the international perspectives presented by the increasingly diverse student body.
