Learning and Teaching
The learning and teaching strategy for this module has been developed to provide students with the opportunity to analyse the current status of Nuclear Medicine reporting services and to consider a number of developmental opportunities that exist within this field for the Nuclear Medicine Practitioner
Awareness of current protocols and an appreciation of common Nuclear Medicine appearances will enable the Nuclear Medicine practitioner to develop a reporting portfolio that demonstrates clinical proficiency. In line with the requirements of this type of practitioner the module will also consider decision making skills, the development of a robust reporting framework, the importance of clinical audit and current issues associated with legislation/negligence.
To ensure engagement throughout the module students will be required to contribute to discussion boards where specific tasks will be set. These tasks will be constructed to help the students meet with the learning outcomes of the module. Contributions to these tasks will form source material from which students may extract content to add to their portfolio/written assignment. Experience from other modules using this format indicates the potential for valuable discussion relating to the module content and helps ensure timely engagement as opposed to leaving personal study and revision to the end of the module delivery. The capacity to engage in debate with peers helps to facilitate networking, peer/shared learning and knowledge exchange.
A variety of teaching approaches will be utilised within the module.
Scheduled learning will include approximately 30 hours engaged with online lectures, seminars, tutorials, discussion board entries and article critique.Â
Independent learning will include upto 120 hours engaged with essential reading, portfolio preparation and construction, assignment construction and personal reflection on learning
Additional student centred learning guided by tutorials and discussion will include:
Students will be required to complete approximately twenty five percent of the portfolio cases within "supervised reporting sessions" and time to undertake this should be discussed with the clinical mentor/departmental management prior to the commencement of the module.
