Module aims

This module aims to help students articulate in increasingly sophisticated ways factors associated with their development of critical, reflective and informed practice. Taught through classes, the module teaching helps define the scope of professional work in a range of fields and guide students towards a means of reflecting on their creativity through writing and through presenting their work verbally. This reflection is then assessed through two commentaries or presentations and a culminating formal conference. These commentaries and presentations may draw upon work completed week by week throughout the terms
