The assignment for this module is split into two components.
1. Assessment will be based on the students’ participation in Asynchronous Discussions hosted on the Virtual Learning Environment – Moodle (40% of total mark)
2. A case study of 3,000 words critically discussing issues in health and social care in relation to a person with co-morbid long-term conditions (60% of total mark)
There are 3 Assessed discussions for you to participate (the first one of these is a practice).
Everyone should make an initial posting in each of the discussions which lays out your point of view, then you should all read a selection of your fellow students’ initial postings and respond to at least one of these, giving your opinion on their contribution supported by what you have already learnt and your own experience. Review follow-up comments to your own original posting and respond to these. As this is an academic discussion you will need to support your points or arguments. You will do this by citing textbook/journal references and online resources to support your point of view. Critical reading of the sources identified in individual posts will be required as not all sources will be academically sound.
Each of these will be open for 6 days to enable full participation.
Please note that these are tracked and form part of the monitoring of student engagement.
