Approach to Teaching and Learning

The approach to learning and teaching is student-centred. Each module draws upon the student’s own professional experience and work context as a basis for examining new concepts, knowledge and skills. Students learn through a combination of self-directed learning, face to face workshops, structured activities, reflection on practice, mentored by both peers and tutors. Lectures and case discussions introduce the key concepts of the modules, enabling students to develop project proposals in dialogue with their teachers. Reflection is an important aspect of the course encouraging the students to consider how their practice compares to the themes explored in the module.
