School Of Medical And Health Sciences
Module - Semester 1
Workshops will introduce you to the main concepts in creating a learning culture, and provide you with an opportunity to explore the topic by considering real-world case studies.
A lecture series will also provide an understanding of learning cultures. These lectures will also give specific guidance on how to foster a learning culture in the workplace. Each lecture will be accompanied by a reading list accessible through the University library.
Assessments will enable you to demonstrate your own applied understanding of learning cultures in a reflective essay followed by a presentation.
