Description of module content:

The Module Team acknowledge that learners can recognise their own learning needs and will bring their own resources and knowledge to their academic and professional development. WBL promotes personal and professional reflection and critical thinking on an aspect of the learner’s practice that requires to be enhanced. The main module content includes, developing a LA, reflecting on how the learner demonstrated achieving their Learning Outcomes using a reflective model or framework, how to write learning outcomes at SQCF level 11; exploring the different types of evidence that may be used with in their portfolio and a deeper understanding of the processes involved when demonstrating critical thinking.

On this module you will be stimulated to enhance your clinical judgement and skills in critical reflection in an area relevant to your practice which is underpinned by professional knowledge, skills and attitudes. In negotiation with your line manager and academic supervisor you will develop and sign off a Learning Agreement (LA) (LO 1) that is equivalent to 400 hours of study. Learning will occur as a result of the student engaging in experiences and activities within their workplace which are critically analysed, evaluated, synthesised and evidenced at SQCF level 11 ( L02 – 5) There is flexibility in how the academic written evidence is demonstrated - for example a portfolio of evidence (maximum 10000 words). Which may be demonstrated through the development of for example a poster to present at a conference, a service improvement plan, an evaluation of current service provision. This module enables the student to gain academic credits while undertaking a project focuses on either clinical nursing within geriatrics or crisis resource management.

Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This module is designed around online and student - centred learning in their area of practice. There will be some face-to-face classes provided to support this module and observational placements within NHS Lothian. This module will be delivered using a blended learning approach via the virtual learning environment Moodle and the allocation of an academic supervisor for 1:1 academic support (LOs 1-4).The student is expected to critically reflect on their professional practice and identify an aspect(s) which they need to develop to an advanced level. They will then negotiate and agree a personal set of learning outcomes and complete a LA indicating how their learning outcomes will be met (LO1). Demonstration of written evidence to support the achievement of their learning outcomes will be developed which reflections on their practice (LO2 and LO5) and evidence of critical engagement with the work-based learning process (LO3). Evidence of engagement with others in the workplace to achieve the learning outcomes will be demonstrated by the student’s ability to communicate professionally and network appropriately (LO4 and LO5).
N.B The LA must be approved prior to the students’ embarking upon its implementation. To ensure equity and consistency of approach a panel made up from the Module Team will consider and approves each student’s LA.
The constraints operating in relation to the LA are that learning outcomes written by the student are deemed to be at level 11 SCQF; that the work is consistent with the philosophy of the award on which the student is registered; that the level of work produced to achieve the learning outcomes must be at level 11 SCQF 40 credits.

Formative Assessment:
Formative assessment takes the form of a 500 word Learning Agreement (500 words) submitted in week 4 of the module (LO 1). Formative feedback is provided by the module team which will help the student to develop a more focused and achievable LA. A draft of the assignment will be read and feedback will be provided by the academic supervisor. (LOs 2-5).

Summative Assessment:
For the summative assessment a portfolio of evidence including the LA is submitted in week 15 of the module. The proof of learning must evidence that the all student’s learning outcomes have been achieved as specified in their LA. The chosen mode of demonstrating the achievement of the LA must be equivalent to 7,000 words, but there is flexibility in how the academic written evidence is presented - for example a portfolio of evidence which may include, development of a poster with a written assignment, development of a PowerPoint presentation or writing up a Briefing Report for your line manager/team.
