Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
This module will be delivered using a blended learning approach with face to face lectures/tutorials and discussions via Moodle (LOs 1-5). Face to face tutorials/lectures will take place during the programme. Learning between students will be promoted through the use of asynchronous discussion via Moodle with corresponding guided activities (LOs 1-5). The students will focus on key activities in relation to one international country and compare and contrast the health and social care issues and trends in that country with the UK to meet the modular learning outcomes (LO1-5). Moodle will be used to deliver some module content and provide access to lecturer and peer support via an asynchronous discussion board. The use of Moodle in this module gives greater flexibility so students can choose to learn at a time which suits them.
