Learning concept of the Distance Learning Programme
HIGH PRACTICAL RELEVANCE | INNOVATIVE DISTANCE LEARNING | INDIVIDUAL AND COMPETENT STUDENT SUPPORT | NO PHYSICAL PRESENCE
The learning concept of MSc Psychological Medicine & Mental Health is characterized by a high level of relevance to practice-relevant content as well as innovative teaching and learning methods. The design as a pure distance learning course means the optimal orientation to the needs of the target group.
The combination of guided self-study, individual student support and e-learning units offers students the possibility of learning independent of time and place, oriented to their own professional requirements and needs.
The use of modern e-learning components guarantees students interactive learning as well as clear presentation and discussion of abstract content. Interactive Webinars and discussions in virtual space promote the integration of theoretical principles and methods into professional practice. The use of a Virtual Tutorial in the form of an online learning platform enables flexible and network-like knowledge transfer, which can be optimally varied and adapted according to individual learning needs and progress.
The provision of Recordings of all interactive live offers such as Webinars or Online Lectures as well as all learning material in electronic form facilitates knowledge management and asynchronous learning for students in a learning group with different professional conditions and freedom. In addition, this means simpler and time- and location-independent documentation and repetition of teaching content.
Overview of the Teaching Concept
- Individual telephone &
In contrast to a Study Programme with attendance or complete self-study (also: individual study), Guided Self-Study specifies the learning content. As with individual study, teachers are not present, and the time and place of study can be freely chosen. The Guided Self-Study, however, offers you a given thematic and temporal framework and concrete tasks, which are carried out in a self-determined learning process, but which have to be mastered in certain periods and in certain forms of learning and working. In addition, teachers and tutors are available to you as contact persons and to support the structuring of Guided Self-Study. The teachers and tutors enable you in various ways to structure learning material independently, to compile suitable information and to use it for the respective requirements of your studies.
The MSc Psychological Medicine & Mental Health of London Metropolitan University and ALP Akademisches Lehrinstitut für Psychologie GmbH offers you a structured framework for a self-determined learning process. In order to achieve this, comprehensive teaching material and literature as well as Study Papers are made available in the "Virtual Tutorial" on a learning platform (more detailed description under "Virtual Tutorial"). In addition, there is thematic and methodological support by tutors, which can be used independent of time and place using common communication media.
The MSc Psychological Medicine & Mental Health of London Metropolitan University and ALP Akademisches Lehrinstitut für Psychologie GmbH uses the learning platform "Moodle" for the supervision of students as well as for the structuring of their studies and for the imparting of learning content, learning material and other study-relevant information. For questions about the content of each Module, they can use the Specialist Forums, which teachers and tutors answer within 48 hours on weekdays. Furthermore, Forums can be used for exchange and organisational issues can be discussed.
All study-relevant dates and deadlines are communicated via the Virtual Tutorial. Students will be informed of each new entry directly via e-mail. All teaching material such as Study Papers, Core Literature as well as web links and other study-relevant information such as the timeline for course planning, tasks, work instructions and literature recommendations are made available digitally via the Virtual Tutorial. The Virtual Tutorial also includes individual support by teachers and tutors via e-mail on specialist and administrative issues.
Individual telephone & video consultation
The MSc Psychological Medicine & Mental Health of London Metropolitan University and ALP Akademisches Lehrinstitut für Psychologie GmbH offers you the possibility of individual telephone or video consultation for the clarification and advice on professional and administrative study-related matters.
