Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to consider the need for and importance of independent learning in an emergent profession, radiography. The paper then evaluates whether the revalidated postgraduate programme in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) encourages independent learning by its curriculum design, delivery and assessment. Evidence regarding the promotion of independent learning was gained from staff, mentors, learners and external examiners. Furthermore the scientific presentations and posters that the learners contributed in the professional conference arena during or subsequent to programme completion were seen as indicators of independent learning, as this work lay beyond the remit of the course. Based on the above, the ethos of the programme to promote independent learning has been successful.
