HCT120 - Facilitating Learning and Teaching

This masters-level module focuses on evidence based approaches to facilitating learning, teaching, inter-professional learning and quality assurance in higher education and clinical practice.

The module is intended to provide an opportunity for health professionals to gain knowledge and experience of blended learning and teaching within higher education and practice settings.

You will explore current research and theory that underpins the educational process and apply this to your context of practice.

You will be required to plan and implement various teaching and facilitated learning strategies and you will be actively encouraged to utilise contemporary technology enhanced learning approaches in your sessions.

This module is offered on the basis that you do not need to record this qualification with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and therefore you need to achieve 50 hours of associated practice which, when combined with the Assessment and Evaluation module, will provide 100 hours of practice.
