Intellectual Indebtedness and Plagiarism

Students enrolled in Athabasca University courses, including Health Studies 320: Teaching and Learning for Health Professionals, are considered to be responsible scholars, and are therefore expected to adhere rigorously to the principles of intellectual integrity. Please read the policy related to this at http://www.athabascau.ca/studserv/inthonesty.htm.

Plagiarism is a form of intellectual dishonesty in which another person's work is presented as one's own. Be certain that whenever you use a secondary source in your course work and assignments you reference your source in a consistent and logical manner. All direct quotes (quotations of any number of words from the original) and indirect quotes (paraphrased ideas) must be acknowledged. Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism, and as with any form of academic misconduct, it will be penalized. Penalties may take the form of rejection of the submitted work; expulsion from the examination, the course or the program; or legal action, depending on the specific nature of the infraction.Learning Objectives Assignment

However, dutiful citation of quotes and paraphrased materials does not mean that you can write an essay assignment by stringing together a series of quotes. You should always try to summarize or describe someone else's ideas in your own words. When you present your own ideas or opinions in a paper, provide evidence or arguments to substantiate your position.

Assignment 2: Writing Learning Objectives (30%)

Suggested Due Date - Week 9

Currently within the teaching and learning literature you will discover ongoing debate and confusion related to use of terms such as educational objectives, instructional objectives, behavioural objectives, learning outcomes and learning objectives. In HLST 320, the term Learning Outcomes was chosen to reflect the overall achievements of the learner upon completion of the course, and the term Learning Objectives was chosen to reflect the more specific learning that should be achieved by the learner through the completion of unit learning activities.Learning Objectives Assignment

This assignment, writing of learning objectives, will allow you to gain knowledge that is foundational to the teaching learning process and provide you with the opportunity to partially achieve the course learning outcome: apply the teaching and learning process to a health-related situation in a systematic manner that reflects the principles of teaching and learning presented in this course. Supporting information to assist you in writing learner-centered objectives is addressed in the learning activities of Unit 4 and Unit 5: The Art of Writing Learner-Centered Objectives

. Assignment 2 is part 1 of developing and then simulating a learner-centered teaching plan. In this component you are asked to select from one of the following teaching and learning categories:Learning Objectives Assignment

  • Category 1: Health care professional/individual as client teaching and learning
  • Category 2: Health care professional/family as client teaching and learning
  • Category 3: Preceptor/student health care professional teaching and learning

Assignment 2 uses random assignments. You will pick your category and then open the correct dropbox of three choices. The case will be randomly assigned within that category. Once you select a category a case study will be sent to you. You cannot change your case study once it is received so select your category wisely as it is from this case study that you will complete both assignments 2 and 3. Based on the case study a clear, measureable objective must be written for each of the 3 domains cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. Assignment 2 must be submitted, marked and returned to you prior to you submitting assignment 3. Assignment 2 is foundational to assignment 3 so familiarize yourself with the assignment 3 requirements as you complete assignment 2, and be certain to consider your tutor's feedback when completing assignment 3. Please contact your tutor if you require further clarification of expectations for this assignment.Learning Objectives Assignment

Assignment 3: Developing and Simulating a Learner-Centered Teaching Plan (35%)

Suggested Due Date - Week 14

Health teaching is not an optional practice component for any health care professional. This assignment, Developing and Simulating a Learner-Centered Teaching Plan, will allow you to gain knowledge that is foundational to the teaching learning process and provide you with the opportunity to achieve the course learning outcome: apply the teaching learning process to a health-related situation in a systematic manner that reflects the principles of teaching and learning presented in this course. Supporting information to assist you in assignment 3 is addressed in Units 6-8.Learning Objectives Assignment

Assignments must be submitted via the appropriate dropbox on the course home page.

NOTE - Assignment 2 and 3 are progressive assignments; you will not be able to submit assignment 3 until you have completed assignment 2 and received your mark. Refer back to the case study you utilized to complete assignment 2, as this same case study should be used to complete assignment 3. Also be certain to consider your tutor's feedback on assignment 2 when completing assignment 3. Please contact your tutor if you require further clarification of expectations for this assignment

Assignment 3 consists of two parts:Learning Objectives Assignment

Part A: Complete the following table (possible 10 marks)

Learning Objective  Teaching Strategies Rationale For Selection of Teaching Strategy
Domain: state cognitive, psychomotor or affective. List strategies you have chosen to utilize Provide rationale to support your choice of each strategy.

If you used other materials, such as audiovisual aids, posters, print-based pamphlets, or handouts, please send as an appendix.Learning Objectives Assignment

Part B: Complete a simulation of your implementation of your teaching plan. Note this is a simulation and is not to be implemented with a human subject.  Think of this simulation as your rehearsal prior to actually implementing with a client. You need to submit a video of your simulation. Your video simulation should be 3 minutes in length. You do not need to submit a copy of your narrative but you do need to plan carefully what you will include in your simulation. You can record your video using Adobe Connect, You Tube, Vimeo, or a platform of your choice.Learning Objectives Assignment
