Identify knowledge gaps and source and undertake self-learning to fill the gaps while participating effectively in a structured team environment.
Discuss the implications and requirements of OSH legislation and regulatory frameworks.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
This module will be delivered fulltime. EBL is a facilitated learning approach where students engage in workplaced based scenarios and construct their own learning, identifying gaps in their knowledge and undertaking research to bridge the learning gaps. Facilitators guide students through their learning journey assisting them in the maintenance of a healthy team environment as well as guiding on subject matter. This is carried out in a structured environment where the integrity of the teaching is maintained and a safe learning environment protected at all times. This approach is expected to address student learning needs. Moodle will be used as a repository of educational resources and as a means of assessment.
Module Assessment Strategies
Assessments are formative and summative relation to Process Marks (40%) and Product Marks (60%)
This module comprises a number of workplace based scenarios, typically running over a period of weeks, in which the students apply knowledge to solve technical OSH issues. The students work in groups and are collectively & individually responsible to deliver their work in a professional manner according to an agreed criteria & timeline.
Students are given precise instructions at the beginning of each scenario outlining the key issue(s), the marking scheme attaching to the scenario including process mark and product mark and the expected assessment format. Assessments can be, but are not limited to, MCQ's, exams, presentations, reports, video production, storyboards etc
