This module enables experienced health and social practice practitioners to engage in industry-based activities to explore relevant and meaningful solutions for practice related challenges in their workplace. The industry-based project aims to support practitioners in building resilience and increased capacity within organisations and communities of practice. Reflexive learning activities will build on the practitioner's prior experience, using theoretical frameworks and research evidence to creatively respond to challenges in working with populations they serve. Evidence of industry-based learning will be presented as a report.
