Practice Development for Person-Centred Cultures

This module is delivered as an International Practice Development Collaborative (IPDC) Foundation School. The module will give you the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skill to be a person-centred practice developer, with the aim of embedding person-centred practice cultures within teams and organisations. You will have space to critically explore your values and beliefs about practice development and workplace cultures and to experimentally appraise contemporary approaches and methods of practice development. You will also be able to learn more about participatory approaches to evaluation in practice development and moving towards person-centred and more effective cultures. In addition, you will be offered facilitated active learning where you can consider your own practical knowledge, skills and underpinning assumptions of practice development and person-centeredness. You can opt to undertake 15 credits at SCQF Level 11 (PG level). The assessment is a 3000 word reflective evaluation on your learning experience that includes an opportunity to critique the culture and context of your own workplace.
