Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning and teaching methods and their aligment to LOs
This module will provide the opportunity to develop an understanding of the importance of reflection through a series of workshops, guided reflective blogs and negotiated learning agreements.
Embedding employability/PDP/scholarship skills
You will be engaging in Personal development planning as an core aspect of this module. Students will prepare reflective blogs outlining key aspects of their learning and experience through the programme. This will enable them to contextualise their learning and deepen their appreciation of the links between theory and practice.
Assessment
This assessment is a 4000 word learning log categorised under a series of headings. Students will capture their learning from experience, learning from theory, links between theory and practice as well as development plans for future knowledge and skills acquisition

Research/Teaching Linkages
All lecturers involved in the module are involved in scholarly activity and research in their specialist field and feed this experience into the sessions. All sessions are underpinned by relevant research and there are recommended readings from appropriate textbooks or articles.
Supporting equality and diversity
Materials on the module will be accessible through Moodle and you will have access to the Adaptive Technology Centre for students with learning difficulties. Additional learning support can be provided, if required, through the Departmental Disability coordinator.
Internationalisation
The module will draw upon a wide range of teaching materials from a broad international context and you will be asked to reflect upon the material and apply it to your own experience.

Description of module content:

This module will focus on the importance of reflection and will examine the role of reflection in relation to experiential learning, self-awareness, self-efficacy and the “thinking performer”. It focuses on the student’s professional development and the role that reflection plays in informing continuous professional development (CPD) priorities for managers/leaders. Students will be introduced to the importance of professional development planning and the need to regularly capture tacit knowledge and incidental learning as a means of improving performance.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Develop a critical understanding of the core principles of reflection, the thinking performer and professional development planning.
LO2: Develop a reflective blog based upon both academic and practical based experiences on the programme.
LO3: Write a personal development plan (PDP) identifying key development priorities for the future.
