Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

The notion of adult learning will inform the learning and teaching process and a range of learning and teaching methods will be utilised to achieve the learning outcomes of the programmes. Students will enter the programmes with a wide range of skills and experiences and some may hold senior positions. These experiences will be used to enhance the learning process. Post graduate degree level study involves students taking responsibility for their own learning and this will be encouraged throughout the programme. The learning and teaching strategy will take notice of this and methods used will range from tutorials, to student led seminars, dialogue, problem based learning, appreciative inquiry, skills workshops, self-directed study, discussion and debate and expert led lectures.

The full range of learning and teaching strategies will be adopted within this course, for example: problem-based learning, scenario based learning, guided study, e-learning, clinical skills sessions, workshops, discussion groups, action learning sets, reflection, seminars, debates, lessons and lectures. It is imperative that as future educators individuals are able to utilise a full range of learning and teaching strategies. 

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

The University offers a wide range of services and activities designed to support students. These include a student counselling service, a student advisory service, crèche and day facilities, sport and exercise facilities, as well as campus information, library and IT services.

This programme gives you the opportunity to share ideas with health professionals. As well as developing your own intellectual abilities, this sharing of ideas enables you to learn and benefit from the experiences of others.  Opportunity is given for this sort of discussion and exchange of ideas through seminars and tutorials.

All students are given a named personal tutor following registration onto the programme, who is able to assist them with any pastoral care as well as advice on writing style, grammar and academic mentoring.

All modules within the programme make extensive use of Cardiff University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Learning Central, on which students will find course materials, links to related materials and assessment exemplars.

For students whose first language is not English there are open access English Language courses available. These are 5 week courses run on a first come first served basis and cost an administration fee of £25.

Feedback
We will provide you with feedback on your work in a variety of formats. These will include oral feedback during lectures, written feedback provided through online module discussion forums, and electronic written feedback on assessed coursework through GradeMark.  You can discuss your overall performance with your personal tutor.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

The assessments used within the MSc programme relate to the measurement of professional, academic and where appropriate clinical practice. This includes written work such as reflective narratives, evidence based literature reviews, essays and research critiques, examinations, case study analysis, practical tests, oral presentations, seminars, video and playback, tape recordings, viva, dissertations, project work and completion of portfolios.

Each assessment is accompanied by written guidelines and assessment criteria based on the QAA Code of Practice for assessments (QAA 2006). Wherever possible a pro forma is produced to accompany a summative assessment. This may be in the form of marking criteria, competencies to be achieved, standards etc. with clear guidelines relating to what is being assessed. This correlates with the learning outcomes of the programme/module.

Each module within the MSc Advanced Practice Education for Health Professionals pathway will be assessed formatively and summatively in line with each specific module assessment strategy. This incorporates a variety of modes of assessment including the following:

  • Assignment (theoretical and reflective).
  • Presentations/ Peer reviewed presentations/ seminars.
  • Discussion/ seminars/ workshops.
  • Case scenarios.
  • Simulated clinical workshops.
  • Objective Structured Clinical Examinations.
  • Multiple choice question classroom tests.

Assessments used within the programme relate to the measurement of professional, academic and clinical practice, and will include written work such as reflective narratives. 

Specific educational modules will include:

  • Two assessed learning and teaching sessions per module.
  • A 4000 word reflection per module.
  • Record of learning, teaching, assessment and evaluation hours (200 hours non-NMC/360 hours NMC).
