Course Description

Clinical Health Sciences Education (M.Sc. / P.Grad.Dip.)

The MSc in CHSE offers suitably qualified health care practitioners an opportunity to develop their skills in teaching, assessment, curriculum design, development, evaluation and research. The student teachers on this course learn these skills in both stimulated and professional practice contexts which are underpinned by the philosophy of interdisciplinary learning. This results in teachers who are thoughtful, critical and more importantly prepared for the challenges of teaching within higher education. Students are required to maintain a portfolio throughout the course and are required to complete 100 hours of teaching practice (80 hours classroom teaching and 20 hours clinical teaching).

The programme takes place over two years on a part-time basis. A blended learning approach is utilised in the delivery of theoretical content, including lectures, group discussion, Blackboard and self-directed learning. The assessment process used is a combination of written and practical assignments. In year one, students develop their knowledge and skills in health sciences education while year two concentrates on research and the completion of dissertation.
