Course content will be delivered during lectures. In the seminars, you will critically discuss this content in the context of your own experience and in-depth reading of the subject area. In small, facilitated peer-review groups, you will present and receive feedback on your self-directed learning objectives and project ideas (including the project methodology, implementation and evaluation). Key learning and teaching resources will be available on Moodle (The University’s virtual learning environment).
You will be asked to undertake small, formative pieces of work throughout the course. These will be related to aspects such as the rationale for your project selection, your project plan, the project implementation, and the project evaluation. You will receive feedback on this work from your course leader and through peer discussion.
Your summative assessment has two parts:
- Reflective Portfolio: You will be required to submit a reflective portfolio, which will consist of a number of tasks related to the planning, implementation and evaluation of your project (5,000 words).
- Digital Presentation: You will submit a 3-minute digital presentation related to one of the portfolio tasks (for example, you might produce a video related to an element of your project management methodology, such as your service-user engagement strategy).
The minimum qualifying mark for both assessments is 50% and you need to pass both assessments to pass the course.
This course is worth 30 credits toward eligible programmes.
