Assessment methods

Around two thirds of course content will be self-guided through online materials, with the remaining third taught in block, timetabled sessions on one day every 3 to 4 weeks. The flexible format allows you to learn while you work or coach, caters for those with family commitments, and also allows learners to access the course from a distance. This helps you to apply the learning to your own coaching, coach education, teaching or researcher context. The course will make full use of blended learning approaches with many different kinds of online guidance available. Problem-based learning will account for much of the virtual learning content provided via LJMU's Canvas facility, whilst distance-learning tutorials will be offered over Skype. The programme will be assessed using a variety of methods including essays, oral presentations, poster presentations, a viva voce, a scoping literature review and, of course, the dissertation.
