Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
The module adopts a blended approach to learning, teaching and assessment using an on line delivery of the theoretical content of the module learning outcomes 1-4, including support material. Interactive face to face workshops / tutorials will be provided to develop practical skills in learning, teaching & assessment utilising problem-based scenarios and simulated practice techniques to further enhance the understanding of these theoretical concepts and facilitate their application to the clinical learning environment. These activities will be used to support the achievement of the module summative assessments.
