Indicative Module Content:
Students have the opportunity to experience a different health system. The module is based on experiential and reflective learning. Students are asked to reflect in their journals and posters on the impact this experience has had for them, how it will influence professional practice and what learning was involved. This is achieved by critically describing and presenting experience through a formal reflective practice model.
Approaches to Teaching and Learning:
Students engage with local staff in Uganda to conduct health promotion activities. They engage in both experiential learning and reflective practice to enhance professional skills and knowledge. This is reflected in completing a reflective practice journal each week and presenting on their experience with a dual focus on integrating literature and contextual information (i.e. population statistics, service provision etc).
