SUPPORTING EDUCATION IN PRACTICE - 2022/3
Module code: NURM147
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 is designed to meet the needs of professionals working in health & social care. The module is designed to support health care professionals who undertake an educational role to apply learning and teaching theory to their practice role.
The module forms part of the teaching for professional practice programme and The Practice Teacher qualification.
