Teaching and learning methods
The Specialist Clinical Component is designed to encourage the student to take responsibility for his/her own learning and to integrate work (in the case of part-time students) with formal educational activities. There will be an emphasis on a self-directed learning approach and the application of newly acquired knowledge will be encouraged. (The different learning needs of full-time, part-time and mature students are recognised. For example, flexibility over timetabling for part-time students, thus maintaining contact hours to the maximum yet allowing the student to work in clinical practice, through self-directed learning).
The type of teaching will vary from tutorials, small group seminars, self-directed learning, individual clinical and laboratory tuition and close clinical supervision.
In addition, activities on this clinical component may be supplemented by:
- attendance at national conferences;
- participation in appropriate extra-mural clinical courses;
- seminars given by guest lecturers.
