At Leeds Trinity, we aim to provide an excellent student experience and a personal approach to helping students achieve their academic and professional potential.
Most of the modules on this course are delivered through a combination of lectures and small group tutorials/seminars. These modules include a variety of learning assessment methods including analysing ‘real world’ case studies, problem-based learning, leading seminars, poster presentations and mini conferences.
We make extensive use of Moodle, Leeds Trinity’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), to support class sessions with all module information and lecture slides posted. We also use e-resources to enable 24/7 access to learning materials from off-campus and these include access to over 1,600 psychology journal titles.
As emphasised in the University’s Learning and Teaching Strategy, the department is committed to increasing the amount of contact time devoted to student-led enquiry. Students will engage with programme content and learn in an active fashion and in alignment with BPS standards. Assessment methods will be used, matched to the learning outcomes for the programme – all of which include internationalisation and a historical perspective of the discipline, while promoting awareness of how psychology can be applied in the workplace and in the community.
A variety of assessment methods is used, matched to the learning outcomes for the programme, to enable students to demonstrate the full range of knowledge and skills that they have developed. On most programmes there is scope for students to be involved in negotiating and evaluating some assessment.
