Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
The module will be taught through the use of paper-based study materials developed specifically for distance learning, accompanied by a core textbook. Together these will provide explanation of key theories, principles and concepts (LO’s 1-5). Students will have access to dedicated support staff and academic tutors as well as an online Student Community throughout their studies. Learning will be supported through a paper-based study guide accompanying a core textbook. The main purpose of the study guide is to help learners to make the most effective use of the core textbook and other resources. It provides clear structuring, routeing and signposting, to establish a context for learning. The study guide encourages deep learning through the use of activities, self-assessment questions and other formative assessments.

Following introduction to the module using the distance learning study guides, the students will take full responsibility for their own learning and their contribution to a small learning community of peers with support from the module leader and student mentors. As part of a learning community each student will be invited to reflect on their own experiences as a Higher Education student (Study Guide 1) as well as an aspect of clinical practice (Study Guide 2) demonstrating evidence of using a framework of reflection.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
Employability skills developed through this module include problem-solving, literature searching and retrieval; critiquing of literature and reflection. Critically, each student will need to demonstrate evidence of having engaged in the process of reflection with the focus being on being a Higher Education student (Study Guide 1). It is intended that reflection on personal learning and practice will develop self-awareness and promote confidence and competence as a student, while enhancing professional development.
