This paper will explore the introduction of an innovative approach to learning and assessment within a master’s leadership programme aimed at health and social care professionals (the majority of students are nurses). The notion of patchwork texts (PT) as an approach to curriculum development and assessment (Ovens, 2003) is integral to the programme. Action research was undertaken to explore the impact of the PT approach on student learning. Initial results are extremely positive and detailed evaluation will be discussed within the paper. Objectives: To evaluate students’ experience of the ‘patch work text’ approach. To explore whether a ‘patch work text’ approach supports student assessment.
