Assessment

The assessment strategy is to create a bespoke assessment of work based learning, with reference to psycho-social theoretical approaches. It therefore depends on the learning contract negotiated with the facilitator. The assessment states that it must be equivalent to a project of 6,000 words because some options of assessment will not take the form of written work in the form of an orthodox essay or report. Other options include:

  • A portfolio of evidence
  • A presentation with associated reflection
  • Production of a patient/service user information leaflet or video with
  • associated reflection.
  • A paper or letter prepared for publication with associated reflection.

Clearly, where there are different options for assessment there will need to be guidelines so that students and academic staff can have confidence that assessments are comparable.

Assessment strategies need to meet three criteria:

  1. That the negotiated learning outcomes related to the module outcomes are met.
  2. That the correct academic level is reached.
  3. That the learning, including assessment, represents 300 hours of study, nominally.

Careers/further study

This module contributes towards MRes/MSc Professional Development (Psycho-Social Studies).

Content

These workshops will draw upon the theoretical insights and methodological tools offered by the more complementary dimensions of contemporary psychoanalysis, sociology, group relations and group analysis to develop innovative approaches to in-depth knowledge gathering and intervention.

Introduction

The Researching Beneath the Surface module looks into how do we research and inquire into human experience, particularly the affective and less conscious dimensions of this experience.

What are the ethical, organisational and political implications of connecting with and understanding our own and other's deeper thoughts and experience? How might our emerging knowledge and understanding influence changes in our practices?

These kinds of questions are increasingly being asked today by researchers, consultants, social activists and organisational innovators.

Learning and Teaching

Scheduled learning includes lectorials, tutorials, project supervision; work based learning.

Lectorials will be used to both introduce and discuss key psycho-social themes, concepts and debates already existing in the area of emotion, affect and society. Lectorials allow a form of interactive delivery, whereby discussion and connections between your present work and/or past professional experience, and content may influence lecture content delivery.

Workshops will include peer supervision and data analysis processes and other practice orientated activities.

Tutorials will be aimed at guiding students through their learning and at facilitating students to create a bespoke learning contract and assessment portfolio.

Independent learning includes hours engaged with essential reading, assignment preparation and completion etc. Scheduled sessions may vary slightly depending on the module choices students make.

Blackboard will be used to facilitate learning through providing guidance and learning materials.

The work environment, whether based on paid employment or volunteering, is also a source of experiential learning and specific skills acquisition required for the module.
