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

This module is designed to take a learner centred approach to work-based learning combined with social group learning to maximise understanding, Francis and Cowan (2008). It is delivered in a way which will give you opportunities to explore the topic material from both a practical and academic viewpoint. Relevant knowledge and skills are developed through a mixture of student-led discussion groups, case studies, role-plays, self-completion questionnaires and videos held during the workshops. You will be engaging in group discussions/debate and presentations, encouraging the development of critical thinking, verbal presentation of arguments, team working, cooperation and consideration of the views of others.

Assessment

Consistent with this approach to learning emphasis is placed on building capabilities and reflective practice with formative assessment built into every workshop. This includes writing action plans that the student will implement back in your workplace. LO 1&2 will be achieved through the participation in workshop activities and the development of a minimum of 1 Action plan at the end of each workshop appropriate to the learner's work context. Further formative assessment will occur at the beginning of subsequent workshops where students will discuss their progress with peers and tutors to evaluate progress and identify any further actions required. These reviews will enable the student to understand their contribution to the organisation and the value of their workplace experiences to their personal and professional development.

An Action plan for each workshop will be required to be formally submitted by the end of the module and will contain the learning goal/s and objectives for the completion of the work-based learning relating to the workshop topics.

LO 3&4 will be achieved through the completion of a reflective report demonstrating the implementation of 2 of the plan
