This is the current assignment for this module. It contains both formative and summative elements. It should be used by those who attended the April 2014 'Work Experience in Higher Education' residential.

FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT: Learning from Work Experience.

Look again at the presentation about learning from work experience, which includes the worked example which integrates Krumboltz's work on instrumental and associative learning experiences and Kolb's learning cycle Based on this create your own alternative worked example based on either a) your own experience or b) the experience of a student you have worked will.

Visit the thread in the online forum entitled 'Post-residential formative assessment exercise' and post at least once to this thread on the topic above. Posts can be as short or as long as you want and the activity is designed to be fairly informal.

Please note that you are also most welcome to email me to discuss your work on this module individually.
