Learning and teaching is founded on the concept of the Masters-level student as an autonomous, self-motivated and self-directed learner, and the practice learning experience is the foundation from which the academic and theoretical aspects of the curriculum are developed. In addition to lectures, workshops and tutorials, learning is supported by practice debrief sessions, which provide a regular forum for students to share experiences and identify key learning from their practice placements.
