3 The programme aims to 1. provide a flexible, modular structure for negotiating a programme of study which provides a coherent scheme and progression route recognising and valuing prior experience and learning and building on this 2. provide learners with the opportunity to develop intellectual, analytical, and problem solving skills which encourage the development of mature and independent decision making and reasoned judgement 1. Educational Aims of the Programme 3. develop conceptual knowledge and practical understanding of how techniques of enquiry enable the critical analysis, interpretation and application of contemporary evidence within the learner s sphere of influence 4. develop graduate key attributes within the lifelong learning context 5. facilitate the development of learners as leaders and/or change agents, able to respond to a dynamic practice environment 6. provide a learning experience which promotes the application of a robust client/user focus and a collaborative approach to both learning and practice 2. Programme Outcomes This programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate: 2(i) Knowledge and understanding The student will be expected to demonstrate that they have developed a systematic and coherent body of knowledge and critical understanding of the following: 1. The evidence, theories and policy drivers that underpin decision making and judgement in nursing practice 2. Methods of enquiry appropriate for exploration of nursing practice 3. The professional, ethical and legal perspectives of nursing practice, including diversity and cultural issues 4. The need for and constraints of developing practice, managing change and of multi-professional working 5. Concepts and frameworks for collaborative and partnership working 3

4 6. The holistic nature of nursing practice 2(ii) Qualities, skills and other attributes in the following areas: The student will be expected to demonstrate that they have developed and have the ability to apply the following skills, qualities and attributes: 1. Formulate and complete a structured learning programme aligned to the Knowledge and Skills Framework (where applicable) and other appropriate competency standards 2.

Search for, critically analyse and apply a contemporary evidence base for practice 5. Identify and access appropriate bibliographical resources and other sources of relevant information. 6. Use information technology effectively, as a resource of information, as a learning aid and for the presentation of information 7. Take responsibility for own learning and development using reflection and feedback to analyse own capabilities, appraise alternatives and plan and implement actions within required deadlines 2(i) Knowledge and Understanding Learning/Teaching Methods and Strategies A variety of methods and strategies will be used to ensure development and acquisition of key knowledge and understanding. Students will be given opportunities to experience flexible and creative approaches to teaching and learning, which foster independent learning. Distance learning can be defined as learning which takes place away from the physical space of the University, often within a VLE (Virtual Learning Environment), whereas blended learning uses a selection of delivery methods and learning approaches, which may include distance learning. FDL (flexible distributed learning) applies to all forms of learning which take a flexible approach so that students can engage, as far as is practicably possible, with learning at times and in ways which suit them. Learning is based in academic study and in professional practice. Students are actively facilitated to apply and integrate their professional knowledge within their practice and to develop an enquiring critical approach to their study and professional practice. Acquisition of knowledge and understanding is through a combination of the following: Use of virtual electronic learning environment Online and class based workshop activities Facilitated discussion and debate 4

5 Tutorials Guided study and reading Work based learning Reflection on professional practice Work based learning is facilitated by a designated mentor within a relevant working environment, supported by the university. Tutorial support is available through a Personal Tutor system as well as through access to module and specialist tutorial support. Additional support to learning is provided by Learning Information and Student Services. Experts by experience (for example service users) contribute to teaching and learning within individual modules where this is appropriate. Indicative Range of Assessment Methods: Portfolio Case study Reflective Account Academic essay Evidence based analysis Patchwork Text Production and presentation of a teaching aid Presentation OSCE Viva Patient management plan Clinical vignette Written report Online assessment Work Based Assessment Written examination Dissertation Formative assessment is an important feature within the programme. The nature of the formative work varies across the modules, essentially this comprises work that informs or becomes part of the summative assessment. Formative work may include in class or on line activities such as presenting draft assignments, work in progress, or multiple choice tests. Peer and self assessment are also used to give students timely feedback on formative tasks. (Reference: University of Cumbria [11] Guidelines for Good Assessment Practice). 2(ii) Qualities, Skills and other attributes Learning/Teaching Methods and Strategies Intellectual, professional and key transferable skills are developed throughout by methods identified above. Students are actively encouraged to critically reflect on their development of skills in practice in order to develop their ability to make sound professional judgements. Methods used include work based learning, simulated learning in clinical skills, action learning sets, lectures and workshops, case study reviews and discussion forums, independent study and tutorials. Experts by experience (for example service users) contribute to teaching and learning within individual modules where this is appropriate. 5

Learning Teaching and Assessment Strategy Key Principles: The Practice Development Framework has developed a set of overarching principles for learning, teaching and assessment which relates to all modules and programmes within the framework. Through this approach learners will be provided with a coherent learning experience. The following section summarises the key principles arising from this strategy document. This programme has been designed to be flexible, utilising a full range of UoC digital resources and supported communication through learning technology where suitable for example through online and distributed places for learning an approach that embodies inherent (even if latent) opportunities for study across learning contexts. Use will be made of UoC learning technology such as Blackboard and the availability of resources suitable for mobile learning (such as use of PDF file format instead of MS Word; Downloadable podcasts). Learning will be based in academic study and in practice environments. Students are actively facilitated to use, apply and integrate their developing knowledge within their practice and to develop an enquiring, evaluative approach to their study and practice. Learning and assessment are considered as interrelated. Everything that the student undertakes and the products of that learning is couched amongst active participation and formative opportunities for dialogue and feedback throughout. Modules include formative activity specifically intended to generate feedback on performance to improve and accelerate learning (Nichol & McFarlane-Dick, 06). Summative assessment is authentic, in that assessment clearly aligns to programme and module level learning outcomes, encourage and enable progressive development through feedback, and is of relevance to practice needs that also develop skills and capacity for a wider employability context. Intellectual, subject specific and key transferable skills are central to learning opportunities and assessment. Students are encouraged to critically reflect on their skills development in their learning and practice contexts in order to develop their ability to make sound professional judgments. 6

7 The delivery of study, academic and digital skills are embedded and extend and adapt definitive resources available centrally through LISS, creating an opportunity to present parity in the student experience across standalone modules and student-owned pathways. 1 As referred to in LTA Plan 11-16, Contexts for learning at University of Cumbria: a) Campus-based learning experience, enhanced through the use of technology; b) Connected sites, Gateway and placement settings providing more support online and distributed places for learning; c) Intensive programme attendance, backed up by online learning for workplace learning, placement and professional learning and short course offers; d) Online, at-a-distance learning utilising full range of UoC digital resources and supported communication though learning technology. At HE Level 6: (Year 3 undergraduate or equivalent), students will be able to demonstrate that they have the ability: to critically review, consolidate and extend a systematic and coherent body of knowledge; critically evaluate concepts & evidence from a range of resources; transfer and apply subject-specific, cognitive and transferable skills and problem solving strategies to a range of situations and to solve complex problems; communicate solutions, arguments and ideas clearly and in a variety of forms; exercise considerable judgement in a range of situations; accept accountability for determining and achieving personal and group outcomes; reflect critically and analytically on personal and work place experience in the light of recent scholarship and current statutory regulations. 5. Programme Features and Requirements The BSc (Hons) Nursing Practice is designed to offer flexible, post-qualifying learning opportunities that will enhance the professional development and career opportunities of registered nurses. The programme features a variety of bespoke module options which are tailored to individual learners personal and professional development needs. The BSc (Hons) Nursing Practice shares the same principles as the Practice Development Framework in relation to credit accumulation (and transfer), flexibility and choice. In normal circumstances, students will register for the award at the commencement of their studies. However they will also have the opportunity to delay this registration until a later stage in their studies. Students will be allowed to accumulate credit through the completion of stand alone modules which are most appropriate to them and their practice. At any time, up to the completion of 1 level 6 credits, students will be able to transfer the credit into the BSc (Hons) Nursing Practice (providing they meet the entry criteria for the programme). The BSc (Hons) Nursing Practice programme will require students to undertake a single, credit core module: Evidence Based Practice. Students will have the opportunity to select remaining modules from the Practice Development Framework (see list attached) or, any level 6 module from within the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing which has been designated as stand alone, to a total of 1 credits, providing the selected modules are relevant to the student s programme of study and area of practice. Optional modules must be agreed by the personal tutor. All students are allocated a personal tutor [PT] charged with supporting the student as they work to identify and then meet their individual personal and professional learning needs. The PT will assume an academic tailoring role which consists of moderating the student journey through their programme of study, so that their choice of modules and 7

8 focus of the assessments is appropriate to their named award. The student will complete a negotiated learning plan on commencement of their studies. The plan will be subject to approval by the programme leader. This will be facilitated through two processes, which together will enable the student to achieve a coherent learning experience. Firstly, on entry to the Framework, students will be required to complete a negotiated learning plan [NLP]. This plan, completed with the help of the personal tutor, will detail the desired target award, the optional modules selected by the student and any core modules that are required to complete the target award. It will identify a recommended order of study for the selected modules. The NLP, which is subject to final approval by the programme leader will be recorded on a student database. It will be reviewed by the student and PT on an annual basis. Secondly, the personal academic development record [PADR] provides detail on the role of the PT. It comprises a focus for personal tutor meetings and for maintaining a record of progress throughout the student s period of learning. The PADR will enable the PT and student to work together to maintain a record of the modules studied and their contribution to meeting the target programme learning outcomes [where relevant]. Communication between student and personal tutor with regards to the NLP and PADR may take place via face to face or telephone meetings or via the internet. The preferred process for meeting will be determined jointly by the PT and student. The process relating to the completion of NLP and PADR documents will be monitored by the level/programme leaders and the framework leader. Operational team meetings will provide the forum for communication on and development of these processes. 8
