This course is made up of supported and on-line learning and teaching strategies backed by a knowledgeable and committed course team.
On the course you
* develop supportive teaching and learning skills in various clinical settings

We encourage you to evaluate learning and teaching strategies and develop your personal teaching style, in line with your educational and specialist clinical expertise.
You design and develop learning packages that have an evidence-based approach. You also examine your own effectiveness in practice.
Observed teaching practice is available where you teach small groups of students at the University. This helps inform your teaching practice and identify your personal strengths and weaknesses. You also develop ongoing action plans to address these issues.
