The 7DDE Designing, Delivering and Evaluating Learning and Development Provision is a Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Management optional module.
Purpose and Aim of the Module
The plan and delivery of learning and development often happen in a definite context. For that reason, the module endeavours to develop a critical understanding of the role and influence of several contextual factors. These contextual factors are all associated with the planning, delivery and evaluation of learning and development strategies and interventions.
A well-established body of knowledge and theory is put-up to facilitate the learning processes and the application in instructional design. The body of knowledge and theory also facilitates learning which in turn influences the design and delivery of learning and development of plans and events. As such, this established body of knowledge creates an essential component for this unit.
Essentially, the 7DDE module is designed and intended to develop the professional knowledge and skills that are essential ineffective performance in specialist roles. These specialist roles are related to the planning, delivery and evaluation of learning and development.
Therefore, this module requires learners to critically reflect on both theory and practice from an ethical and professional point of view. Moreover, the unit provides opportunities for application of learning and a continuous process of professional development.
