Course overview

This module aims to provide students with the opportunity to think about how they might bring about evidence-based change or innovation in their practice area. Using a step by step approach, students will critically think about why their identified topic is important, how they might implement this into practice using change theory/strategies and how the proposed change will be evaluated. The core of this module is self-directed learning, with support from your group supervisor. General guidance and advice will be provided by your module leaders in the initial lecture. Each student will be allocated to a supervisory group, in which the supervisor will facilitate tutorials to support your learning and development of your work following the framework of the Practice Development Proposal. There will be a 3-hour introductory session on the first day followed by monthly 1-hour group supervision sessions with a designated supervisor.
