ART OF LEARNING AND TEACHING - 2020/1
Module code: NURM106
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information, the University has had to change the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes, together with certain University services and facilities for the academic year 2020/21.
These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes. This webpage sets out information relating to general University changes, and will also direct you to consider additional specific information relating to your chosen programme.
Prior to registering online, you must read this general information and all relevant additional programme specific information. By completing online registration, you acknowledge that you have read such content, and accept all such changes.
This module is quite unique as it is designed to advance learning and teaching skills.
To achieve this, a training needs analysis will be conducted on commencing the module in the form of a Personal Development Plan (PDP).
Each student will identify their goals and develop a pathway of discovery and learning that will enable them to enhance their teaching skills.

Marking and grading educational assessment
|Assessment type||Unit of assessment||Weighting|
|Pass/Fail competencies||Completion of four teaching practice assessments||Pass/Fail|
The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge skills and understanding of teaching. In order to do this they must complete four observed teaching practice assessments and complete a reflective teaching portfolio, (word count 3,500 words).
Formative assessment and feedback
Students will receive formative feedback via:
- Written reports on their observed teaching assessment; which the reflective accounts will be based upon
- Verbal discussion during contact time
- Timely response to email or telephone questions
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
Reflective Teaching Portfolio - (3500 words):
The teaching portfolio will incorporate the following:
Resources and reflective accounts from the four teaching practice assessments within Part 1 of the assignment. The reflective accounts will be based on the areas for development that have been identified within the assessment report.
Evidence will be required from a further four teaching practice sessions
Evidence of formal contact teaching hours in line with professional body requirements.
- Provide students with the opportunity to increase their knowledge and understanding of the complexities of learning and teaching, assessment and evaluation in order to review critically and enhance their expertise in these areas of professional practice.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to:
- Enable students to have a deep and systematic understanding of their teaching practice
- To draw upon their own experience to develop their understanding of the current evidence base for teaching practice
The learning and teaching methods include
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
