This module combines the use of lectures to introduce topics, interactive lectures and workshops to facilitate team working and learning and to enable learners to critically appraise their learning throughout delivery using reflective practice.
The fixed resource sessions consist of interactive seminars which will include lectures, discussion of course text and class based workshops.
There is an expectation that learners undertake independent learning to support and embed learning in line with the module aims and objectives. This includes, but is not limited to, study focused on producing work for small group activities, preparing for group discussions and assessed tasks.
Interprofessional collaboration and learning is undertaken on individual programme placements.
Resources are available through Moodle and these include teaching material, online discussion forums and quizzes. Journals and e books are available through the university library.
Professionalism resources and inter-professional working strategies guidance resources can be accessed online via HCPC, respective professional body and DoH websites.
Additionally learners are encouraged to explore, via websites of patient organisations in the third sector the requirements for inter-professional working through listening to the patient voice and perspective.
Learners are encouraged to access individual or small group tutorial support for areas of difficulty. Academic staff make themselves available for tutorial support by appointment.
Learners are advised to take tutorial advice from the module lead and marking tutors in relation to module content and assessment, and their allocated personal tutor for more general advice.
A core component of this module is the development of communication, reflection and teamwork skills through small inter-professional group working. Learners are expected to reflect upon their learning and skill development throughout the module during individual, personal study time.
