Curriculum Consultation Update. Heather Wanstall. Two events and an on-line consultation have been held regarding the implementation of the BDA Curriculum framework 2008. We have looked at placement structure, learning outcomes and assessment processes.
We have looked at placement structure, learning outcomes and assessment processes.
A separate scoping exercise has looked at how best to incorporate Public Health Dietetics in a more significant way.
Significant disquiet about placements that have a block spent elsewhere in the middle.
HEI’s need to agree how best to use the 2 week A block as well as how to incorporate PH in a more meaningful way.
However………from the answers to later questions there is clearly some confusion about what PAL is!
Bearing in mind we have been teaching PAL pretty relentlessly for the last 3 years.
4 Trusts are running PAL B placements and over 60 students have passed through this system in the last 3 years.
AND only the most engaged PEs will have completed the on-line consultation.
46/65 answered the question asking how peer assisted learning could be used on C placement. Of those, at least 21 showed some confusion regarding PAL.
HEI’s need to consider how to take this forward
Another job for student leads?
