Description of module content:

The Module Team acknowledge that learners can recognise their own learning needs and will bring their own resources and knowledge to their academic and professional development. WBL promotes personal and professional reflection and critical thinking on an aspect of the learner’s practice that requires to be enhanced. The main module content includes, developing a LA, reflecting on how the learner demonstrated achieving their learning Outcomes using a reflective model or framework, how to write learning outcomes at level 11; exploring the different types of evidence that may be used with in their assignment and a deeper understanding of the processes involved when demonstrating critical thinking.

In negotiation with your line manager and academic supervisor you will develop and sign off a Learning Agreement (LA) (LO1) that is equivalent to 200 hours of study. Learning will occur as a result of the student engaging in experiences and activities within their workplace which are critically analysed, evaluated, synthesised and evidenced (LO 2 -4) There is flexibility in how the academic written evidence is presented - for example a portfolio of evidence (5000 words), development of a poster with a written assignment (2000 words), development of a PowerPoint presentation or writing up a Briefing Report for your line manager/team.
This module will enable the student to gain academic credit by undertaking a project within their work place.
