2. EDUCATIONAL AIMS OF THE PROGRAMME

The educational aims of the programme at different exit points should be given

         To provide a broad and balanced foundation of optometric knowledge.
         To develop practical optometric and ophthalmic skills.
         To develop in students the ability to apply their optometric knowledge and clinical skills to the solution
          of theoretical and clinical problems in optometry.
         To enable students to make valid clinical judgements.
         To instil in students a sense of enthusiasm for optometry and thus to involve them in an intellectually
          stimulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying.
         To foster, through the medium of an education in optometry, a range of transferable skills of value for
          the pre-registration year.
         To generate in students an appreciation of the importance of optometry in a clinical, economic and
          social context.
         To provide students with a knowledge and skills base from which they can proceed to further studies in
          specialised areas of optometry.
         To assist the student in developing the skills required to adapt to changing needs of patients.
         To give students confidence in themselves and in their abilities.
         To give students the role of eye care with both primary and secondary care.

Degree Exit Award Objective: By the end of the unclassified degree programme a student will be able to carry
out appropriate standard scientific techniques and methodologies in response to the specification of a given
optometric problem, and present the results, findings and conclusions in a clear and reasoned manner.

Honours Exit Award Objective: By the end of the Honours degree programme, the student will, in addition, be
able to analysis a familiar or unfamiliar optometric problem in preparation for the pre-registration year.
                                                                                               Page: 32

It is now well recognised that in optometry, as in all allied health care professions, appropriate interaction
between practitioner and patient is vital. Throughout this document, there are numerous references to the
development of communication and interactive skills being an integral part of a particular module.

The main formal element of teaching in this area is in the third year module Communication Skills. Lectures on
theoretical concepts relating to communication, the structure and function of the optometric consultation, clinical
communication, the needs of special patient groups and clinical decision making are interwoven with role-
playing sessions and small- and large-group discussions. Students are then encouraged to practice their
                                                                                              Page: 91
communication skills in parallel clinical subjects and to be reflective of their interactions with patients in the Eye
Clinic.

Learning and Teaching (LTAS- Learning and Teaching Assessment Strategy)

The university places great emphasis on teaching and learning and has a LTAS policy which seeks to promote
good practice. The primary aim of the LTAS in relation to the optometry programme is in accordance with the
overall aim of the university which has the intention of equipping students with the necessary subject
knowledge skills, attributes and confidence to enter employment, undertake further study and play a
constructive and creative role in society. There are two strands – student related activities and staff related
initiatives.

Student related

The Programme Board takes measures to monitor the learning experience of students while studying on the
BSc Optometry and ensure that such is enriching and enjoyable and also meets the requirements of the
Government, Professional and University bodies in relation to satisfactory completion of the programme.

The university instituted a Communication and Information Technology (C&IT) skills course for first year
students in 2000, leading to a certificate of C&IT competence. This continues to be administered fairly smoothly
by incorporating the training sessions into the timetable. The Programme Board intends to continue to support
this valuable feature of each student’s learning experience.

An ever increasing amount of information concerning the development of ophthalmic materials and products
can now be accessed by students using IT skills (CD-ROMs and various software packages). The Programme
Board will continue to provide access for students so that they benefit from their C&IT skills in ways which allow
further understanding of concepts and information in order to consolidate, and to enhance, the learning gained
through the more traditional didactic approach.

With the enhancement and development of well-rounded scholarly and clinical work, many personal
transferable skills are imparted to students as part of the existing teaching and learning process on the
programme. The Programme Board aims to encourage and facilitate the development of students' transferable
skills in order to enhance their learning experiences.

Staff related

The Programme Board, through the Department of Vision Sciences, continues to encourage teaching staff to
develop and maintain, where possible, a strong research profile. As well as underpinning teaching on the
programmes in the department this facilitates a focusing of staff development in key priority areas. Seminars
by staff involved in research provide colleagues with the opportunities for continuing professional development,
(more detail on staff research is provided in chapter 4).

Most members of the Programme Board maintain membership of professional bodies. These professions now
have properly regulated CPD and, as members of these professions, staff are obliged to maintain their CPD
credits. Many are also examiners for external bodies and acquire much vital information from these professional
contacts.

There is an extensive network of peer-support within the Department of Vision Sciences. This is predominantly
informal, but works well is a small unit such as this and means that no staff member or teaching element is in
any way isolated from the others.

A separate chapter on the research activities of the Department of Vision Sciences, over the five year period of
this review is given on Pages 25-30 in the “Supplementary Document.

   CREDITS AND AWARDS
  [Details of length of programme, number of modules, number of hours of teaching, innovative features, etc]

  Preamble

  The programme follows the standard Glasgow Caledonian University structure for Undergraduate Awards,
  where each level consists of the equivalent of six full modules of 20 Scotcat points each. Half modules of 10
  credits each are also permissible. An academic year consists of two semesters, with three full modules or
  equivalent offered and assessed in each semester. A semester is fifteen weeks in length, twelve teaching
  weeks followed by three examination/revision weeks.

  Each module represents 200 hours of student learning effort, including staff delivery contact. The contact
  hours are given in each module descriptor.

Mark             Comment

81-100%          Work of exceptional quality that shows an excellent command of the subject in question
                 and originality in thought and extent of knowledge acquired

70-80%           Work that shows an excellent, though not necessarily faultless, command of the subject
                 in question, together with elements of originality in thought and in the extent of
                 knowledge acquired

60-69%           Work that shows an above average command of the subject in question, possessing
                 qualities of thoroughness, conscientiousness, and insight

50-59%           Work that reveals that the student has acquired a basic command of the material covered
                 in the course

40-49%           Work that shows some understanding of the material covered in the course, but of a poor
                 quality and with elements of misunderstanding and lack of thoroughness
35-39%           Work that fails to come up to the standard expected of University students admitted to an
                 Honours degree, but where there are sufficient signs that understanding prevails over
                 misunderstanding and could be considered for compensation

30-34%           Fail - but containing some relevant facts and some evidence of understanding

0-29%            Fail - Work that contains very few, if any, relevant facts and shows little or no
                 understanding of the material covered

For honours programmes:
Marks between 70-100% equate to the performance expected of a 1st class honours candidate;
Marks between 60-69% equate to the performance expected of a 2i class honours candidate;
Marks between 50-59% equate to the performance expected of a 2ii class honours candidate;
Marks between 40-49% equate to the performance expected of a 3rd class honours candidate.

         assessor is associated.
        To ensure that students are assessed according to the regulations approved for the module/s within that
         subject area.
        To satisfy himself/herself that the work and marks awarded are consistent with the policies and
         regulations of the University and best practice in Higher Education.
        To inform the University on any matter which, in his/her view, militates against the maintenance of proper
         academic standards.
        To inform the Clerk to Senate if he/she decides to resign over a matter of principle in order that this may
         be brought to the attention of Senate as a matter of urgency.
        To produce annually a report for consideration by the Departmental Board and, subsequently, the
                                                                                       Page: 111
       relevant SQEC, of the standards attained by students in that subject area and on any other matter which
       may seem appropriate for report.
