Learning and Teaching

Teaching and learning methods

During your practice experience you will learn by working alongside staff from the full multidisciplinary team. You will be supervised by registered nurses and other healthcare professionals before you are assessed by a named Practice Assessor. You will be expected to fully participate in direct care at a level appropriate to your stage of the programme and level of experience. During your practice experience you will be expected to reflect on what you have learnt and undertake independent learning to enhance your knowledge base and clinical practice. This may form the basis of a discussion of practice experiences/ specific case scenarios with academic staff, peers and/or your Personal Academic Tutor. Opportunities exist in each practice experience for you to arrange additional practice learning experiences to meet your learning needs.
