How will I study and how will I be assessed?


Sessions are interactive with space for reflection and practice. You will be encouraged to link the session content with your experience and read suggested texts outside of the course. Formative assessment and feedback takes place during the sessions in an informal manner and through the learners own reflective log.  Summative feedback is given through peer observation and two reflective essays.
