Integrated Care: Integrated Learning

Collaborative Learning and Working in Practice - guidance for students

Learning at Sheffield Hallam University engages you with the world beyond university.
Learning is intellectually stretching, and you are given opportunities to apply research-based knowledge positively to affect issues relevant to service users, health and social care professionals and future employers.
Key to this is working and learning alongside and from other professions and groups. In doing so, you develop your expertise, become more innovative, collaborate, and develop your entrepreneurial capabilities and go beyond the boundaries of your discipline.
The Collaborative Learning Framework has been designed to help you think about your professional development in relation to your collaborative skills. The Framework can be used to plot your development in conjunction with other aspects of your course and is a great tool to help you meet your career goals. We encourage you to use this Framework, alongside your placement assessment documentation, to evidence your wider personal and professional development.

Supporting Collaborative Learning and Working in Practice - guidance for placement providers

These posters and screencasts provide an overview of what our students are learning and experiencing in each year of their Health & Social Care programme. We are making very clear links within the interprofessional modules to the practice placements. We hope this information will help guide you to support varied opportunities in order to consolidate students' learning whilst they are with you on their practice placements.
