Teaching and learning disclaimer
Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.
The teaching and assessment methods listed show what is currently planned for 2021 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
The module consists of five online tuition sessions prepared and facilitated by the module lead. The module content is entirely self-directed using Moodle. The module leader will be available to answer queries via e-mail.
Students are expected to complete study independently.
Students will be registered with their appropriate professional body. They will be practicing clinicians within the field of musculoskeletal medicine.
Details of the assessment components and learning outcomes will be published on Moodle separately. A summary is provided below, there are two elements.
- A reflective account which evaluates the tasks completed throughout the module (1000 words), weighting: 50%.
- One case study (2000 words), weighting: 50%.
Students are permitted to submit a maximum 500 word draft of part of their case study for formative feedback. This must be submitted using FASER. Please refer to the postgraduate handbook for more information on the requirements for seeking feedback. A formative feedback form must be completed and submitted with the draft.
Submission via FASER. Feedback on all coursework will be available to students within four weeks of submission. Each assessment must be passed to a minimum of 50%. The final mark will be a combined mark of all the assessment components. A fail in any part will result in a fail overall. A failed component will need to be resubmitted and the mark will be capped at 50%. All components must be passed to obtain and overall pass for the module.
