Learning through exploration
The 'learning through exploration' approach at Coventry University takes a hands-on approach to learning. In addition to using the mock wards, operating theatre and ICU, we also use a range of problem solving and scenario-based learning to embed your understanding. In this video you will see how our nursing students interact with one of a number of 'patients' they will meet several times throughout their course, as the 'patient's' medical history develops. This evolving scenario-based learning helps you to develop patient-centred care and important skills in supporting patients with a variety of backgrounds, experiences and needs.
