Leading People through Change HEA4038
This module focuses on the theory of change, the frameworks/models to facilitate change and the reality of leading change within the context of health and social care. The module also facilitates reflection to determine: the type of change agent the student is, the type of change agent they aspire to be and why, and the action that will be taken to further their development. This will be supported by group work, debate, case studies and student led seminars to create a learning community.

How will I study?Mode of delivery: Blended learning based on a hybrid Model.
This module will be delivered through blended learning based on a hybrid model. A hybrid model is ‘an educational approach where some individuals participate in-person and some participate online synchronously (at the same time).’ The tutor(s) deliver sessions and teach remote and in-person learners synchronously using appropriate technology, meaning that the students are taught together in ‘real time’. This means some of your teaching sessions will be delivered in-person and some are online synchronous delivery. If you are unable to attend in-person, with your Module Leader’s permission, you can attend the in-person teaching session, online synchronously.
