Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This module adopts a practice-based learning philosophy and teaching is designed around a series of 3 interactive and participate workshops. These workshops (LO'S 1-4) are designed to enable you to reflect upon and develop your leadership knowledge skills and capabilities as a 'reflective practitioner', becoming aware of your personal effectiveness, your impact on others and your own wellbeing. You will adopt practical approaches to developing and continually improving your leadership approach, in the context of your organisation. The workshops will be highly interactive and collaborative, facilitated by a subject expert. The workshops will draw on a range of approaches to structure your learning such as case studies, self-assessment tools, individual and group debates and exercises drawing on a range of academic and practitioner materials and role plays. Moodle is used to provide all materials and as a resource base for you to structure your learning and communicate with workshop tutors

Formative Assessment:
Formative Assessment Formative assessment will take place throughout each workshop. As action plans are developed the programme leader will review drafts and provide formative assessment and feedback on these. You are also encouraged within the workshops to share your ideas with other students and receive formative feedback from your colleagues. Workshop leaders will provide ongoing feedback on workshop activities such as case study responses and role play skills development.
