This unit builds and integrates material from previous semesters, particularly clinical placements and evidence-based healthcare.
Learning and teaching strategy
This unit encompasses an active learning approach where you will be expected to purposefully engage in enhancing your own learning experience. Online modules will provide content and also incorporate interactive activities such as quizzes and forums. Online module content will be further built upon in tutorials. The teaching approach will be based on you developing a deep understanding of the principles and the ability to independently think critically and solve problems, with additional support through academic mentorship. The face-to-face teaching time within this unit is less than within previous units, with an expectation that you will engage more independently in your learning as well as integrating learning from the clinical experiences undertaken as part of this unit.
This is a ten credit point unit run over the session. Within this session there will be approximately 14 hours of online content for you to work through independently, including preparatory activities for your tutorials. There is a 2 hr tutorial in Week 3 and Week 8, and 2 hours of academic mentorship available to support understanding of content and application to assessments. Furthermore, there are 70 hours of integrated clinical experiences in sports and workplace settings, with these experiences being imperative to the understanding of systems complexity. Further information is available in iLearn.
In the Faculty of Medicine, Health & Human Sciences professionalism is a key capability embedded in all our programs. As part of developing professionalism, Faculty of Medicine, Health & Human Sciences students are expected to attend all small group interactive sessions including tutorials, clinical and laboratory practical sessions.
All tutorials are scheduled in your individual timetable. The timetable for classes can be found on the University web site at: http://www.timetables.mq.edu.au/. You may make a request to your tutor to attend a different tutorial on a one-off basis for extenuating circumstances. You will also be able to select an appropriate time for your academic mentorship sessions from multiple times available in Week 9 and Week 12.
Failure to attend any learning and teaching activities, including tutorials and academic mentorship sessions, may impact your final results. It is your responsibility to contact the unit convenors by email to inform tutors if you are going to be absent.
