Delivered through a blended learning approach, students will have contact days to be introduced to topics and key concepts, then utilise Moodle, our Virtual Learning Environment, to consolidate and extend their thinking.
All modules contain a literature-based assessment activity and students are expected to read widely and critically throughout the programme. All modules require written reflections as self-directed task-based activity; there are a number of self-directed tasks which require students to design, implement and evaluate authentic clinical teaching/supervision activities with one or more learners in a range of contexts.
In addition, each of the three modules has an assessment task where they are required to review their own practice and suggest changes with a rationale. In the core module this is based on tutor observation of teaching, in the optional units, this is based on recorded sessions that students’ self-critique, as well as further teaching observations. We see feedback as a central part of the learning process.
- Core Module: four and a half days
- Optional Modules: four contact days each
This structure ensures that students can personalise their programme to align with their professional interests and development needs, whilst still meeting the professional standards of two accrediting bodies, AdvanceHE and the Academy of Medical Educators, and those of the GMC.
