Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
To meet the learning outcomes (1-4), this module is delivered using a variety of teaching and learning strategies, which include tutorials, learning materials and activities to engage the learner online, peer and tutor-led discussions, action learning sets and self-directed learning. Learning materials focus on understanding the concepts and principles that underpin clinical governance and improvement practice LO3-4, placing these in a policy context LO1 and thinking analytically about how these apply to a particular work setting. Action learning sets and individual study provide the main means for communicating key concepts LO2, written work provides the means for marshalling arguments and presenting them in a sound and convincing fashion. This process also provides students with the opportunity to clarify their thinking in order to present ideas clearly to others.

Formative Assessment:
