Course Overview


Students will develop their understanding of learning through examination of some of the major theories of learning and related concepts. They will then apply this analysis to their own teaching and learning and draw upon this understanding to analyse a learning event in the student’s workplace. This module will allow the student to develop their critical analysis of the practical planning, delivery and evaluation of learning. 


Typically, the content of this module may include theories of adult learning, planning lessons, evaluating learning and teaching, teaching and presentation tools, debriefing and using differentiation. However, the rapidly emerging evidence underpinning adult education may mean the alteration of module content to reflect current trends


Includes the following:

• lesson planning and curriculum development

• Teaching tools & presentation skills

• Clinical teaching

• Feedback & debriefing

• Research informed teaching
