This module has a two-part summative assessment. The first element is the production of an electronic academic poster that will focus on collaborative and partnership working in public health / healthcare. The second is a 2500 writings that critically discusses and evaluates the importance of management and leadership theory within a public health and /or healthcare management context. The two elements are not directly linked. The weighting of each component of the assessment is 50%.
To support your summative assessments, we also provide support via two formative assessments.
1. You will produce an electronic academic poster on one PowerPoint slide which will critically analyse collaborative / partnership working issues in an existing collaborative / partnership public health and / or healthcare management project of your choice. In particular there should be a critical discussion of the effectiveness of the collaborative work/ partnership. Examples of projects will be available on the e-learning portal or you can find your own. This will be presented to your peers and module tutor(s) for review and feedback. This peer and tutor feedback will help you to develop your final electronic academic poster which is one element of the summative assessment.
The electronic academic poster will provide the opportunity for you to present a visual representation of key issues relating to the rationale and effectiveness of an example of public health or healthcare management collaborative / partnership working. (MLO’s 1,2)
2. You will be asked to provide your allocated tutor with an outline plan of your writing via email. This should be no more than one page in length. You will also receive a small group tutorial with your module tutor, which will be an opportunity to ask specific questions about the assignment.
