Consistent with adult learning principles, the teaching andlearning strategies used within these modes of delivery will provide students with foundationalknowledge and skills relevant to professional nursing practice. These strategies will also supportstudents in meeting the aim, learning outcomes and graduate attributes of the unit and the broadercourse learning outcomes. Learning and teaching strategies will reflect respect for the individual asan independent learner. Students will be expected to take responsibility for their learning and toparticipate actively with peers.Students at university need to operate effectively as self-sufficient learners who drive their ownlearning and access the learning supports, they require. To guide students in their learning, feedbackis required to identify what is being done well, what requires additional work and to identify progresstoward required learning outcomes. Located in the second year of the programme, this theory unitincludes an online component of learning to build life-long learning skills. Lectures are utilised toconvey content and its central principles while tutorials deliver interactive and student driven learningsessions which require an increasing reliance on students to extend their community of learners andincrease self-reliance. Online materials provide students with the opportunity to undertake directed,self-motivated study and continue to transition to independent study and life-long learning.QUALITY ASSURANCE AND STUDENT FEEDBACKThis unit has been evaluated through the ‘Student Evaluation of Learning and Teaching’ (SELT) onlinesurveys. Recorded lectures are now presented as multiple small captures of approx. 20 mins.Assessment tasks and lectures have been adjusted in accordance with student feedback from thelast iteration of this unit. Student feedback from 2020 has resulted in an integrated approach tolectures and LEO tile content.SELT surveys are usually conducted at the end of the teaching period. Your practical and constructivefeedback is valuable to improve the quality of the unit. Please ensure you complete the SELT surveyfor the unit. You can also provide feedback at other times to the unit lecturers, course coordinatorsand/or through student representatives.LECTURE CAPTUREPre-recorded lectures will be offered online weekly from weeks 1 – 10.
