This course helps students challenge their current working practice in rehabilitation; the programme offers participants the opportunity to enhance the skills of critical enquiry and gain an appreciation of the underlying theory, research and policy guiding current rehabilitation practice.
This module is the exploration of reflective strategies used in the context of rehabilitation practice. The course offers students an opportunity to evaluate reflection in relation to their own learning in the context of their own working environment. Additionally it will enable students to consider how to facilitate a reflective approach within a team. A reflective approach to professional practice is a vital part of continuing professional development and it is hoped that this provides a valuable grounding for those looking to advance practice in Health, Social Work and Social.
This module introduces students to the concepts and practice of argument formulation, critical reading and writing skills. The key theme of the module is to examine and discuss a selection of research problems from different aspects and to critically evaluate their research design. This module includes a selection of outside speakers from different settings who have been selected to present issues from their wide ranging research experiences. Their experiences will support or inform student research projects.
