THE COMPLEXITIES OF WORKING WITH CHILDREN AND FAMILIES (FD) - 2021/2
Module code: NUR2186
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic the University has revised its courses to incorporate the ‘Hybrid Learning Experience’ in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information. The University has changed the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes. Further information on the general principles of hybrid learning can be found at: Hybrid learning experience | University of Surrey.
We have updated key module information regarding the pattern of assessment and overall student workload to inform student module choices. We are currently working on bringing remaining published information up to date to reflect current practice during the academic year 2021/22.
This means that some information within the programme and module catalogue will be subject to change. Current students are invited to contact their Programme Leader or Academic Hive with any questions relating to the information available.
This module aims to inspire the student to explore a range of complex situations, in order to synthesize ideas or information to generate new ways of working.

|Examination||EXAMINATION - SHORT ANSWER QUESTIONS - 120 MINUTES||100|
The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their range of knowledge in relation to a disease/complex condition and the impact this has upon a child and family. The use of a scenario enables the student to critically explore the challenges and support needs of the child and family and recognise the biopsychosocial perspective, influence of policy on practice and supporting their critical analysis with a wide range of supporting evidence.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
• A short answer question paper based upon a scenario, made available to the students prior to the exam. (2 hours)
• The students undertake a mock exam half way through the module which they mark themselves with group feedback and discussion. Papers are then reviewed by the module team and individual feedback given to students.
• Students are continuously given feedback through the module and the module leader is available each week after teaching for support or to answer queries. Students are given group and individual feedback for their mock exam. The students undertake real time simulation during the module and are given feedback on performance and areas to address for future practice. After the summative exam, students are given group feedback on each question. Students are actively encouraged throughout the module to access support from the module team/raise any concerns so they can be addressed and resolved quickly.
- This module will inspire the student to explore a range of complex situations, in

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to:
Provide students with a variety of teaching methods to engage all learners and provide opportunities to learn in a number of ways.
The learning and teaching methods include:
• Key lectures – 14 hours
• Discussion groups – 3 hours
• Seminars – 10 hours
• Case studies – 1 hours
• Self-directed study – 66 hours
• Simulated learning – 11 hours
• Directed e-learning activities – 48 hours
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.
