Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
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.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
This module prepares the student to use the theoretical underpinnings of learning, teaching and assessment in practice, so they can apply these to supporting any level of learner within the practice environment.



Formative Assessment:
Week 7-10
You will have the opportunity to submit an essay plan for feedback through Moodle. The 500-750 word plan will allow you to receive feedback to better develop the summative assessment. The essay plan includes the structure of the essay and paragraph on academic writing, two indicative references and the opportunity to ask questions of their academic supervisor.


Summative Assessment:
Week 14
In an essay of up to 3500 words you will demonstrate how the mentor/preceptor, can develop learning, teaching and assessment strategies to support an underachieving student to achieve a successful outcome. You will utilise the module content, the learning opportunities and resources in your practice area, along with further reading - and conclude with how the learning you have gained could apply to future practice as a mentor/preceptor.

Theme Two, Thinking Ethically will enable you to consider ethical practice in the context of individual and service care provision (LOs3 & 4). In Theme Three, Practising Ethically, you will demonstrate an understanding of care decisions that are based in reasoned ethical context and provide a reflective account of the learning journey you have taken (LOs2 & 4)
