WAYS OF WORKING AND BUILDING BRIDGES - 2022/3
Module code: NUR2112
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 in time for the start of 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 will provide mental health nursing students with the ability to develop interpersonal engagement and assessment skills and strategies with service users in the mental health care setting.

The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate ;
Development and understanding of key assessment and clinical engagement skills in the mental health care setting through the use of written analysis and reflection on their rehearsal interaction and assimilation of this experience with their clinical experience.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
- One written essay of 2,000 words
The students are required to undertake a rehearsal/role-play of an assessment and engagement scenario in groups of three with one student acting in the role of observer.
The scenario is provided for the students, there is a choice of four scenarios.
Each student receives verbal feedback on the role-play- this in turn informs the essay plan.
Each student is provided with written feedback via a check list on his or her interaction and role play.
A staff member from the module team gives students feedback on their subsequent essay plans.
Feedback is given to students via brief meetings with a tutor who has responsibility for responding to the essay plan from each allocated student.

The learning and teaching methods include:
- Role rehearsal
- Tutor feedback
- Lectures delivered by clinicians currently in practcie
- Lectures from University teachers
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.
