Learning outcomes

In this module students learn to formulate their own learning goals for the internship and to document and reflect on their learning outcome in order to derive conclusions for their own actions. They reflect on their internship under supervision both orally and in writing in a group setting or via e-learning and thus learn to cope with situations experienced as difficult.
They use their own experiences from practical work to reflect on patterns of action and emotional states and document them in the learning portfolio. Continuous reflection leads to an individual increase in theoretical and practical competence, which is documented in the learning portfolio.
