Description

All professionals are required to continuously engage in professional development with a feature of this being not only being able to identify and meet learning needs, but to apply the learning to practice. The professional development can be achieved either through work related courses or activities, attendance at conferences/masterclasses, courses outside the university, sessions within the university or self study. The aim of this unit is to provide a structure through which the learning gained can be acknowledged and the student can critically reflect on the impact of the learning on both themselves and their workplace. Thus, the unit aims:

• To develop critical understanding of professional knowledge / skills acquired through structured learning 

• To develop skills in reflection and critical evaluation of practice

• To develop application of learning in professional and organisational contexts

In this unit students engage in learning from a variety of sources prior to completing the assessment. This learning may be of a formal or informal nature, but it is expected that it will be at least 12 hours duration. This can include self-study, attending conference/study day/masterclasses etc. The contact hours in University discusses the benefits of work based learning and prepares students in terms of study skills for the assignment. 

The focus of the assignment is negotiated with unit leader in class and by tutorial support during the unit via e-mail, phone or personal tutorial.  In addition Action learning group support will be available for students to meet, network and reflect upon the learning process.

This course requires 100% attendance.
