This course will be run over 2 blocks.
You will need to bring your own treatment videos to facilitate discussion. Between blocks, you will be expected to assess a client from their caseload, plan and deliver an intervention that is evidence based and has a measurable outcome. Some of the sessions will need to be videoed. This will be practice and work-based learning, which will be facilitated through a personal mentor, at least once a month for an hour. You will be expected to keep a reflective log on your learning through the mentoring process.
Over the second four day block the main focus will be on presentation of case studies and critical analysis, including video footage of treatment sessions, building further on previous learning. The student cohort will be present; building further on previous learning. The presentation will be part of the summative assessment. Following the second block, you will complete assignment 2 through self-directed learning. One aim of this programme is to enable students to increase your analytical and problem-solving skills and skills of critical thinking to Masters level. Therefore learning and teaching strategies reflect this. A study of the concept of critical thinking and the theories underlying clinical reasoning and problem-solving are introduced early in modules and this way of thinking is then applied to the topics discussed later. The teaching methods used are designed to encourage you to organise their thoughts, present arguments and evaluate situations in discussion with others. Therefore workshops, tutorials and seminars predominate. Lectures will present material, particularly that pertaining to their own research activities or scholarship. However, this is followed up by appropriate opportunity for students to discuss and evaluate the ideas presented.
The development of life-long learners is an important aspect of the rationale for the module and a student-centred approach is employed whereby students are encouraged to determine their own learning needs and therefore direct module content in order to achieve the learning outcomes. Self directed study forms an important part of the learning strategies and contributes to approximately ¾ of the total notional learning hours. Initially students will be directed in study skills and guided in the areas for study. Often self learning is tested in a formative way through discussion in tutorials and seminars. Practical exercises will enable students to increase their practical and/or theoretical knowledge using a problem-solving and critical approach. This module will require them to work in the clinical field between module blocks with the guidance of a clinical mentor.
