Months of entry
These awards explore the issues around education in health and social care settings from teaching and assessment to professional issues which influence learning within the workplace. They draw upon personal experience of teaching and learning and the various assessments encourage a critical appraisal of your own teaching and learning practice through essay, case study, portfolio and direct observation of your teaching. As well as the final dissertation, there is scope within the award for you to carry out one independent study in any area relating to teaching and learning that is of particular interest or relevance to you.
The award adheres to the belief that education is value-based and part of the course philosophy is for participants to explore their own understanding and beliefs around teaching practice.
