Learning and teaching methods

* Catalyst lectures will be delivered on key themes for the module to a mixed group of students * Academic level specific tutorial groups will explore teaching content * Tutorial discussion will be followed by academic level differentiated on-line discussion groups. There will be asynchronous discussion between the level 4 student groups at Colchester and Southend campuses with a similar provision for the level 7 students * Moodle – the VLE will contain entry level content which will direct students to either Level 4 or Level 7 directed reading and support activities. There will be open access so Level 7 students primary reading can access the level 4 sections of Moodle and vice versa. * Module outcomes are academic level specific * The assessment strategy involves the same tasks but the level of critical ability required for successful completion will vary dependent on academic level. Placement: approximately 95% of time is spent in clinical practice.
