Teaching and assessment

for Medical Education (for Surgeons) PGCert

Teaching

All teaching on our distance learning postgraduate courses in medical education is delivered through an online virtual learning environment and incorporates a range of interactive teaching.

These resources enable regular peer and tutor interaction and the majority of the material can be studied in your own time, when it suits you.

The teaching materials encompass:

  • podcasts
  • blogs
  • discussion boards
  • webinars
  • videos

Your learning will be focused around tutor-delivered material, peer discussion, directed self-study and assignments.

Assessment

Each module is assessed via written assignments and there are no exams.

Your assignments will be contextualised to your own setting allowing you to demonstrate the application of theory, concepts and principles to your own work-based practice.

We encourage you to self-evaluate and critically reflect on your learning with your tutor providing feedback on your self-evaluation as well as your final assignment.

Students can undertake work in their own time in accordance with their schedule, working to the fixed final assessment deadline(s) for each module intake.

We're testing a new way of showing modules on the website

This list should give you a good idea of which modules you can take, however it may change before you begin your course, and may not show all available modules.
