Student Centred Professional Skills Development: Dr Jon Waterfield

Within the study of Pharmacy, Jon Waterfield presents his innovation of student centred learning with the interaction with ‘real life’ practitioners. In this competence based pedagogic approach there is the contextualisation of the subject content. It is ‘situated learning’ whereby the students develop their own projects within the workplace.  This develops both academic knowledge development and work-based skills.  It is a project which focuses on students’ employability potential.
