Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
This module will allow the student to demonstrate self directed and self managed learning (LOs 1, 2 & 3). The placement will be a minimum of 8 weeks / 224 practice hours. The selection of placement location can be by the student in an approved training practice of their choice, students will be encouraged to select a practice according to their individual needs and interests (LO1). Support will be provided by the placement co-ordinator. Students can schedule the timing of their placement any time within Trimester 2, but hours must be completed by the end of week 15 of Trimester 2.

Students will identify particular learning needs in areas for development during this module by the construction of 1 student chosen aim which will be further broken into 3 learning objectives (LO2). Students will be expected to liaise with the selected placement in ensuring learning outcomes are realistic and achievable (LO3). Progress with the Personal Learning Portfolio will be discussed with the mentor to provide an opportunity for feedback prior to submission along with an opportunity for individual scheduled tutorials with the module leader. The use of a prescribed learning outcome will allow the student to explore inter-professional relations within the veterinary practice setting (LO5). Students will be expected to demonstrate self-reflection throughout the Personal Learning Portfolio (LO4).

The VLE will be used to provide further reading material, independent student led tasks, reflective discussion forums
