Teaching & Learning Module

Assignment guide

Assignment briefing and mapping to Learning Outcomes (LO) and taught sessions

The student will demonstrate, critical analysis and reflective skills by producing a 6000-word portfolio. The completed document will provide evidence that the student has met ALL of the learning outcomes.

The following guidance is designed to aid with your assignment planning but is not exhaustive, you are able to include any information that will enhance the overall document and improve your learning.

The portfolio will comprise of 5 sections

Section 1You as a teacher and facilitator of learning – reflective account
LO1Evaluation and application of contemporary issues and models of teaching and learning in the healthcare setting using a critical reflective approach of their own practice.
Session 1Learning & teaching 1: How adults learn – key theory, perspectives, relevance to your role as a teacher. Scope and range of roles in learning and teaching – what knowledge and skills required
Session 2Learning & teaching 2: Educational theory and links to practice
Session 3Development and learning 1: Teaching and learning styles
OverviewThis section is a reflection of you as a teacher in your working environment. By using a critical reflective approach, you will be able to demonstrate how you apply and evaluate teaching and learning theory to improve the students educational experience.
Suggested evidenceEvidence of teaching packages, lesson plans, learning style approaches that you may have used may enhance your reflective account.
Section 2Patient education, patient and carer participation and involvement in teaching, learning and assessment.
LO2Evaluation of the impact of patient/carer education, involvement and engagement models on professional practice and education of healthcare staff.
Session 7Contemporary issues in education 2: Patient education, Patient involvement and engagement
OverviewThis section explores in depth the impact of including the patient and carers in healthcare education using current literature to argue the advantages and disadvantages. Reflection of your own experiences may also be used.   
Suggested evidenceA reflective account of your own experiences, involving patients and carers, Teaching resources, patient feedback sheets etc
Section 3Innovation and contemporary practice & development in teaching and learning (technology, simulation, games, experiential learning, distance, communities of practice, problem-based learning etc.)
LO3Selection and appropriate use of technology and innovation within education and learning, whilst critically evaluating their effectiveness.
Session 6Contemporary issues in education 1: Technology, innovation, interactive approaches (games, simulation, experiential learning)
Session 8Contemporary issues in education 3: Inter professional education and learning, Communities of Practice
OverviewYou are to explore ways of enhancing the student experience using innovative methods. Challenge the historical trends in education by critically evaluating if approaches discussed in sessions 6 and 8 are effective. What is the evidence?
Suggested evidenceReflective accounts of your own experiences using these methods, quality improvement (audits), Examples in practice, patient feedback etc
Section 4Learner development – role of feedback approaches and adjustments for learning needs/support.
LO 4Critical analysis and application of current theoretical and methodological approaches in learner assessment, feedback and support. 
Session 4Development and learning 2: Role of feedback (assessment, mentoring, coaching)
Session 10Contemporary issues in education 4: Quality monitoring & evaluation
OverviewExplore current methods of feedback, challenge the academic evidence and reflect on your own experiences of providing feedback. What are the views from a learner and educator viewpoint? How may these views affect the wider organisation?
Suggested evidenceReflective accounts of your own experiences using specific methods, quality improvement (audits), Examples in practice, patient feedback. Design your own feedback form and evaluate it
Section 5Identification of learning and development to meet business needs, programme design, quality management and evaluation and evidencing impact
LO 5Analysis of methodologies used for identification of education and learning interventions to meet business needs and evaluation of impact frameworks/methodologies.
Session 9Identifying learning and development needs/training needs analysis, evaluation and impact/outcome measurement
Session 10Contemporary issues in education 4: Quality monitoring & evaluation
OverviewHow do businesses identify education and learning needs? Explore evaluation strategies and how they may impact learning and teaching. What effect may this have on the learner and educator?
Suggested evidenceReflective accounts of your own experiences using specific methods, quality improvement (audits), Examples in practice, patient feedback. Workplace training needs analysis
