Teaching and Assessing Troublesome Knowledge: Dr Nicola Ward

Dr Ward reflects on the challenges of teaching a subject that students do not immediately see as relevant to their chosen path of study and future profession in Pharmacy.  Being mindful of the diverse student group and the diverse client group she reflects on making the Psychology she teaches aligned to future professional practice. She discusses the changes in delivery and assessment of this module to a more student centred approach to enhance student engagement. This has been achieved by more effective student support via compulsory support sessions, self- assessment and peer reviews.
