Assessment Rationale And Relationship
On completion of the module, the student will be able to identify an effective coaching conversation.
The MCQ case studies will be based on real life coaching scenarios to enable students to identify the most appropriate technique to apply. The written assessment will develop understanding of coaching theory and practice.
The formative assessment requires the student to keep a reflective journal to log their leadership dilemmas within their practice area. The reflective journal should be completed prior to the second teaching day. Students should be prepared to bring their dilemmas to the action sets in order to develop an action plan.
