Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to Los
Student centred, using web-based materials, online discussions, textbooks, study day and formative peer and supervisor assessment (LOs 2, 3, 4). Self-selected topic for critically reflective essay development promotes active engagement with, and responsibility for, fulfilment of LOs 1, 2 and 6. Academic supervisor provides comments about the critically reflective essay outline and subsequent draft material in preparation of the critically reflective essay (LO6). The face-to-face teaching in Singapore facilitates attainment of LOs 1-6.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
Online peer discussion promotes collaborative skills (LO5). Self-selected critically reflective essay topic encourages autonomy, organisation and time management. Intellectual skills are required to access and critique evidence-based material and synthesise theory with practice (LO1, 6).

Assessment (formative or summative)
Lecturers provide formative feedback throughout the module. The critically reflective essay outline is reviewed formatively by peers and supervisor ( 1,000 words). This will feed forward into the Summative critically reflective essay. Discussion forums address module learning outcomes 1-6 and the critically reflective essay (summative; 4,000words – 100% of total grade) develops at least one outcome in depth.
Research / teaching linkages
Links to relevant research provided. Students conduct independent search; critically reflective essay marking criteria stipulate rigorous selection and critique of relevant evidence (LO1, 3, 6).
