Using an insider-researcher approach, this module provides the opportunity to combine your learning and skills in order to undertake a work (practice) based project. You will develop your practice, your practitioner enquiry skills and begin to understand methodologies and methods for engaging in healthcare practice and/or organisational development.
You will be provided with the resources to become an insider researcher and to also develop academically and professionally to maximise your potential and opportunities for career progression.
This module is designed for qualified nursing or midwifery practitioners and is run part time, meaning that you are able to attend sessions with minimal disruption to your current work structure.
If you are also studying COURSE, this is one of two modules you are required to take to complete your degree.
This module will cover the following areas and topics:
Learning and teaching on this module is learner-centred, supported by workshops both on-campus or on-line, self-managed, resource-based and tutorial guidance.
You will be expected to engage in self-managed learning activities in order to develop your own professional enquiry plans.
Our virtual learning environment, MyUniHub, will be used to support interaction among students about their work, allowing you to discuss and share ideas relevant to understanding and application of theories and methodologies to your professional enquiry proposal.
This module will be assessed via formative and summative assessments. The formative assessment will include selected portfolio activities to develop your understanding of being an insider researcher.
There are two additional assessment components in this module; the project report and the project presentation. The project report comprises research proposal, reflective assignment and activities from the formative assignments.
