What you will study on the MA Education?
Assessment includes assignments, portfolios of evidence and action research projects. The learning process involves a combination of selective inputs, workshop activities, school based work, self-directed enquiries and research, and online learning. The modules can be undertaken at a distance from the University.
We understand that our students work in very busy environments, therefore we look to provide support wherever possible. Our principle aim is to tailor assignments to your institutional and personal needs, then use practitioner action enquiry and reflective practice as a learning model. All students will be enrolled on the MA course but may opt out at the Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma stage.
The course title can be negotiated with the Programme Leader - that is, the student may wish to choose what appears in brackets beside the award title 'MA Education' on their academic transcript.
