This subject provides a variety of learning experiences including lectures, large group discussions, clinical demonstrations, clinical case material, role-plays, and small workgroup practicals. Emphasis is on shared experience and cooperative learning based around the students' shared expertise and the total resources available to the larger group. Within this larger group, students have a variety of backgrounds, interests and professional experiences that provide a rich source of resources; students are encouraged to make use of these resources throughout the component. The component is organised around small workgroups of 4-5 people within which most of the practical work takes place. The workgroups provide feedback and discussion of homework exercises, and provide the opportunity for enactive experiences that are simply not possible in a large class format. In addition, there are large class discussions and the opportunity to share information across workgroups.
