How do we justify the number of hours for study in a work-based course?
Notionally, students need to do about 10 hours per week of study in addition to work-based study. Of course, those aiming for high marks will do considerably more - as do all high-achieving students. I'd like to focus here on how we make sense of a work-based course that requires only about 10 hours per week of additional study.
In some modules at present, only a small proportion of the assessment products can really be seen as work-based. Perhaps a starting point would be to identify where we think we succeed in designing tasks that are mainly work-based. Examples include:
- gathering critical incidents
- PDP - any student who doesn't actually have one at work probably should:-)
- work-related literature
