TEACHING, LEARNING AND STUDENT ACTIVITIES
To achieve the Learning Outcomes (LO) the teaching and learning involves engaging with the learning material, tasks and, discussion on the FutureLearn platform and engaging with the live online sessions every two weeks. While students will be given quality support to succeed, they are encouraged to adopt independent learning, being creative in thinking and effective in self-organising their activities in the module.
Student success depends on involvement in learning activities and engaging with the theories being taught. Integrating the theories with real-world situations and work practice help in developing student understanding of resource management skills in the health sector context.
The learning materials will be provided through FutureLearn and Aula and accessible by all students registered for the module. All important aspects of the module including the learning methods and assessments will be explained at the beginning of the module to make students aware of what they are expected to do to complete the module successfully.
The teaching approaches are designed to support students in evaluating resource planning and management theories and practice, so that responses to assessment tasks demonstrate clear understanding, analysis, and engagement with their own professional roles and not the lecturer alone.
Live Online Sessions
The live sessions will run every week on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, you will be allocated to a live session group (see separate document with indicative timetable). The Group timings are as follows (UK Time):
