Learning Process & Professional Development Modules

2009-2011 – I redesigned this module as part of the postgraduate qualification in Offender Management for those transitioning into full Probation Officer status.

The work involved using current requirements and parameters to improve the assessment and feedback mechanism for the module, as well as redesigning the teaching materials for the module.

I assessed students at three points throughout each module. The module was delivered a total of 5 times across two and a half years. I completed module evaluations and attended all boards related to the further development of the qualification, including enhacements to the programme. All students were working professionals and therefore the module teaching had to be able to facilitate non-traditional modes of study and access to tutorial advice via telephone and email.
