Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning and teaching methods including their alignment to Learning Outcomes
The student is expected to negotiate a set of personal learning outcomes and include these in a Learning Agreement indicating how they will be met (LO 1). The Learning Agreement must be approved prior to students embarking upon its implementation. As the Learning Agreement is implemented the student will compile a personal portfolio (LO 3) of their learning which will include evidence of attainment as well as reflective and critical analysis (LO 2). Through Moodle students will have access to materials (at a time, place and pace that suits them) that will support the development of their learning agreement as well as resources to facilitate their learning and use of critical thinking and analysis, reflection and tools and examples of what may constitute evidence for inclusion in their portfolio. Students will be supported in this process of developing and implementing their learning agreement by an academic supervisor who will have knowledge and expertise in the area under study. If necessary these individual sessions can be undertaken in Elluminate sessions as an online lecture / discussion. Overall this module is about applying theory into practice, there are no 'practice hours' associated with the module.


Formative Assessment:
The University is currently undertaking work to improve the quality of information provided on methods of assessment and feedback. Please refer to the section on Learning and Teaching Approaches above for further information about this module’s learning, teaching and assessment practices, including formative and summative approaches.

Summative Assessment:
The summative assessment will be submitted in two parts the learning agreement (maximum 1000 words) and submission of a portfolio (maximum 4,000 words). The student's personal learning outcomes and the Learning Agreement (LO 1) will form the basis for planned learning which will be documented in a portfolio of evidence of attainment. The portfolio should contain critical and reflective analysis and evidence application of theory to practice (LOs 2 & 3). There will be an opportunity for formative assessment throughout module as students will be encouraged to submit drafts of their learning agreement and sections of their portfolio for feedback prior to final submission.

The assessment is operationalised by the student producing a portfolio of documented evidence of attainment of their individual learning outcomes as specified in their learning agreement. All learning outcomes must be achieved and the portfolio completed by the end of the module.

Description of module content:

The module promotes reflection and critical thinking in relation to the student’s own learning in line with their personal, professional and/or academic interests / needs. The content includes a learning agreement: expectations; writing level 9 learning outcomes; examples of evidence that may be used in the portfolio; exploration of the concept of reflection, a variety of different frameworks and models; activities to facilitate a deeper understanding of the processes involved in thinking more critically.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Construct an Independent Learning Agreement commensurate with SCQF Level 9
LO2: Demonstrate critical thinking and reflection in relation to academic, intellectual, personal and professional needs
LO3: Produce a portfolio of evidence to meet the agreed outcomes contained in the Learning Agreement
