Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to Los
This module will be delivered online via VLE and Elluminate Live tutorials. Collaborative learning will be promoted through the use of Elluminate Live sessions facilitated by a lecturer to assure the students the experience to meet learning outcomes 2, 3 and 4.
VLE units offered to support students will provide students with additional material to achieve LO3. Asynchronous discussions with peers and the lecturer will support and facilitate learning whilst the end of unit activities will promote active engagement in learning and will ensure that students continue to achieve LO 3 throughout the module. The use of VLE gives greater flexibility so students can choose to learn at a time which suits their work pattern. Elluminate sessions offer the opportunity to communicate with fellow students in small groups to learn through interactive teaching sessions which aim to build on the content of VLE. The content of VLE, Elluminate tutorials and submission of a final assignment contribute towards meeting LOs 1-4.

Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
This module contributes to the your PDP by enhancing students knowledge and skills in critically applying the evidence that underpins the regulations and legislation pertaing to clinical research, and evaluating its appropriateness for implementation in practice. Completion of this module will enhance the students ability to undertake their role
