When teaching in the workplace we strive to provide the optimum learning experience for the student; this module will help to achieve this aim by exploring the underpinning theory that is used when planning and delivering a teaching session. The module will guide and analyse the application of teaching practice within the workplace from planning a teaching session through to its delivery and to its final evaluation, thus ensuring that the method of teaching is matched with the desired intent. However, whilst we strive for the ideal, teaching within the workplace is not always easy; therefore this module also considers the challenges to teaching in the workplace where the environment cannot always be predicted and teaching sometimes has to be amended.
