Teaching / Learning Strategy

The teaching and learning strategy will enable the students to synthesise and apply knowledge gained from study of the topics within the module. The teaching and learning will follow an online approach to ensure flexibility for students. Teaching methods will include tutor and peer input, guided reading and online learning. Tutors will provide opportunities to consider and explore actual and potential therapeutic intervention strategies relevant to CBT interventions with clients who have addiction issues. Online multi-media presentations, audio files and online course materials provide the main theoretical, skills and knowledge framework to assist independent learning. Written and oral feedback from tutors will develop and maintain student's professional competence. The Reflective Practitioner Activities Portfolio will enhance student's abilities to reflect on self, apply theoretical concepts and use the 'collective' (peers, colleagues and internet) to develop their self-regulated learning. The Reflective Practitioner Activities Portfolio further enhances the student's ability to reflect and evaluate progress in developing knowledge and competence in CBT with feedback from the online tutor.
