Teaching, learning and assessment methods
You will be able to study at a distance supported by a personal academic tutor and a range of university support services. Your learning with The Open University will involve engaging with our innovative and successful interactive and online learning resources specifically developed to meet the needs of students in the healthcare field.
The programme of study utilises a wide range of inter-linked learning design activities including assimilative, information searching and handling, communicative, productive, interactive and experiential activities that link directly into the module assessment.
The assessment strategy will be clearly articulated and easily accessible to you via an assessment guide. This will clearly indicate where the learning outcomes are being assessed. You will also be given access to the marking criteria relevant to your level of study.
Each module will be assessed through four tutor-marked assignments and an end-of-module assignment. A range of assessment methods will be used, reflecting the relevant learning focus of each block.
