SummaryIn this course students undertake a self-directed learning experience generated in close collaboration with the academic staff to promote their learning within the field of Stem Cells and Translational Neurology.
Course description The Student Led Individual Created Course (SLICC) is an opportunity for students to undertake a self-directed learning experience generated in close collaboration with the academic staff to promote their learning within the field of Stem Cells and Translational Neurology.
The development of a structured learning contract facilitates the process and is the starting point for this work. Students will design and submit their learning contract detailing their aims, as well as what areas they wish to investigate and how they predict they will learn and develop. The final written assignment would form the majority of their assessment and should demonstrate the development of their leadership, communication and/or knowledge as the course has progressed
