Summative Assessments

Summative assessment: identify the key issues related to achieving equity and excellence in practice from the situational analysis and present an educational argument and a plan for addressing one of the identified issues through critical engagement with research literature and the wider educational community.  This will be supported by formative assessment throughout.  The assessment will take the form of an academic poster to present to tutors and peers for discussion and feedback (equivalent to 4,000 words, including a plan for action).
