Blended Learning Delivery

At present, during COVID-19, courses are delivered online. These classes are run as tutorials, that involve students and their lecturer logging into our online learning platform Moodle and use the online portal Zoom™ simultaneously. This platform facilitates discussion polls, sharing of slides, videos resources and much, much more. To foster more intimate learning environments the use of breakout rooms is also implemented, allowing for the safe and experiential triadic learning practice that we have found so successful. All of our sessions are accessible through computer and mobile devices and we have a structured and robust technology department to support all faculty and students through their online learning journey. To encourage flexibility, and ss best practice, we also record all our sessions, these are made accessible only to the students in that class to review content whenever is convenient to them!


Learners are required to complete a 4,000-word assignment. There are two components to the assignment, which is submitted in one document:
Part One – Review of Scientific Literature (1,500 words):
Part Two – Clinical Application (2,500 words):
