Learning & Teaching Methods and Alignment to LOs

For the purpose of University Regulations this module is a SNMSC Theory module. This is a compulsory theory module on the BN Mental Health Programme.

A range of teaching methods and media will be used within the module with substantial input from both service users and carers as experts in the teaching sessions. There will be an emphasis on the development of self-awareness and reflection on current and previous practice experiences (LO 3, 4 & 5) and through the use of module theory in case discussion and open discussions with service users and carers (LO 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6). The students will be expected to further develop their literature searching skills and make full use of the supporting Moodle teaching and learning content (LO 2, 5 & 6). The students will spend time in their practice placement reviewing an area of current practice in realtion to involvement (LO 3, 4, 5 & 6). This review will be in the form of general observations of current practice (LO 3), open discussion with members of staff (LO 3, 4 & 5), service users and carers and exploration of local and national policies related to involvement (LO 1, 2 & 4). The outline of the review will be presented orally to peers and the module team members to evidence clear and logical planning (LO 6).
