In leadership change processes, putting a case, defending it to others, and getting buy in is often required, hence the defended poster presentation in component A. Evaluating, reflecting and learning from ones experiences and applying to the next is vital hence component B.
The summative assessment allows you to present the planning, design, execution and evaluation of a change initiative within the challenges of contemporary practice.
The poster presentation will be via an electronic poster template and may be carried out in person or via virtual means. The defended poster format will provide subsequent potential opportunity for the presentation of a leadership initiative at a conference thus encouraging dissemination of the findings. The 20 minute poster presentation would be a 10 minute presentation with 10 minutes to defend via questions. This would mirror the timings of many conference proceedings.
The 3000 word critically reflective essay will enable you to evaluate your role as a leader in change by contextualising your reflections with leadership theory and practice, national/local drivers of leadership and the opportunities and challenges that have presented through the change initiative. It will help you to identify ongoing learning needs thus sustaining the leadership Continuing Professional Development journey.

Learning and Teaching
This distance learning module uses a distance learning approach utilising asynchronous online activities including lectures, podcasts, reading, videos and synchronous tutorials (online discussions). Progress through the module is managed through time dependent release of online resources to ensure structured progression through the learning materials and the synchronous activities promote development of the student-tutor relationship and encourage a cohort identity in addition to supporting core learning. Approximately 60 hours of independent study (e.g. online lectures, seminars, reading etc.) are delivered via Blackboard.
Teaching is delivered in the format of three online lectures delivered as video capture to introduce the three main sections of the module. Associated with these will be examples of contemporary considerations, opportunities and challenges of leadership in today's rehabilitation settings. Theoretical and pragmatic issues will be integrated to provide an overview of the multiple concepts requiring exploration.
Podcasts/webinars/video conferencing will be used to enable engagement with the learning and discussions and as an opportunity for you to explore your progress with your change initiative, receive formative tutor and peer feedback, and prepare for the assessment requirements.
Scheduled learning includes tutorials and synchronous online activities.
Independent learning includes hours engaged with online lectures, seminars and tasks, essential reading, change initiative preparation, assignment preparation and completion, online tasks etc.
