Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Module content is delivered through Moodle. Core material will be provided in the form of notes, videos and through discussion forums. Further resources in the form of current research, publications and websites will be provided. Wherever possible subject matter is related to prior learning. Through the use of cases, a problem solving approach is adopted where students relate their learning to real life scenarios.
Use of the discussion forum within Moodle allows students to post findings, ask questions, reflect on their own experiences, take part in debates on topical subjects and communicate with their peers and tutor.


Formative Assessment:
Formative assessments are provided on a regular basis, on Moodle, allowing students to monitor their own progress. Students can attempt these assessments as often as they wish. These will take the format of quizzes (multiple choice or short answer) where they can revise and apply their knowledge.

Examples of strong and weak former student work will be made available for students to view with the opportunity to critique and mark example essays

Moodle discussion forums on relevant topics will produce peer and tutor feedback for all participants

Submission of essay plan in week 8 will enable formal individual feedback on progress to be given by week 10


Summative Assessment:
Essay: this will take the form of a 3,000 word reflective essay based on a case which students have dealt with in practice. This will support and stimulate further learning and relates theory to practice.
