Dissertation Module: Work-Based Project (NRT079)
In today’s health and social care settings, practitioners are not only engaged in the practice of their profession, but also in supporting the environment as an active learning arena, where students and professionals are expected to develop and maintain their competence in very complex situations. The aim of the work-based project is to implement and evaluate a practice initiative or change, which has an impact on improving practice/practitioner development, while exploring the student’s own role as a practitioner in effecting change.
Through a Negotiated Learning Agreement, the module aims to
- Enable the student to acquire the knowledge and value base, which underpins the development and maintenance of appropriate skills within the work environment.
- Support students in the development and participation of work/practice place environments which facilitate reflection, innovation and ‘user focused’ practice.
- Enable students to develop, implement and evaluate a project plan (or initiative).
