The Development of Work-Based Learning as Part of Post-Qualifying Education: A Case Study from the School of Nursing, University of Salford, UK
Owens, Denise; Rutherford, June
Industry and Higher Education, v21 n5 p361-366 Oct 2007
This paper describes the conception and progress to date of the development of work-based learning as part of post-qualifying education in the School of Nursing at the University of Salford. There is a changing culture in the university in relation to the delivery of programmes via non-traditional routes. In this context, work-based learning is a radical change from current teaching and learning strategies in the School of Nursing and in the university as a whole. This creative approach contrasts significantly with the more traditional methods of teaching and learning in higher education. The paper reports on the development, introduction and evaluation of a work-based learning module as a pilot project. It then outlines the development of a work-based learning degree using the lessons learnt from the pilot.
