Degree: Master of Arts and Social Science (60 credits) with a major in Education (with emphasis Outdoor Didactics).

Teaching language: English

The master’s programme in Outdoor and Sustainability education provides students with knowledge and understanding of how outdoor studies can enhance learning and contribute to better health, a sustainable development and an active citizenship.

The programme focuses on experiential learning based on nature, culture and society. Teaching includes outdoor field-related experiences and learning in and via natural and cultural landscapes. The advanced courses in educational science will help teachers and other educators to understand learning processes and how the society, nature and the cultural landscape can be used as resources for learning and understanding. The programme focuses on experiential learning based on nature, culture and society, using the natural and cultural landscapes in the outdoors as resources for learning and understanding.

As a student you will:

  • increase your knowledge about children’s and young people’s understanding and learning processes in the extended classroom
  • further develop your knowledge of how outdoor environmental education and outdoor life can contribute to awareness of environmental issues
  • learn about the connections between outdoor education and health, citizenship and sustainability
  • develop a thematic perspective on how the urban and rural landscape can be used as a resource for learning
  • develop your skills in field work in real environments

Students pay for trips, food and lodging during the excursions included in the programme.

Learning environment and forms

Theoretical studies of outdoor education are combined with applied work in authentic learning situations using experiential learning as the basis, and the local environment as a resource. The use of extended classrooms for learning also include visits to local museums, school yards, science centres and recreation areas.

In addition to classroom lectures and seminars, students work in pairs or groups with weekly assignments in outdoor natural and cultural landscapes. All program courses also include individually written assignments, which combine theoretical knowledge with practical experiences and critical reflection. Students are also expected to collect their own empirical data for their theses, using qualitative or quantitative or mixed research methods.

A topic of major social significance

There is a clear need for continuous learning and qualification, both on a professional and personal level, in virtually all industries, sectors and walks of life. Adult education is therefore playing an increasingly important part in modern society. Catering to these training needs requires qualified trainers that understand how to combine factual and contextual expertise with the professionalism necessary to be successful in adult education.

Objective

The distance learning degree conveys knowledge relevant to adult education and combines the experience and methods of various social science disciplines. The course concludes with the academic grade "Master of Arts" (MA).

Target group

The two-year, accredited "Adult Education" distance learning Master's degree offered by the DISC since 1994 is aimed at university graduates of any faculty with at least one year of professional experience who are looking to gain further science-based qualifications in the specialist field of adult learning. This course is particularly suitable for full-time and part-time staff working in adult education and further training, training advisers, company trainers, course instructors and program planners.
Applicants may also be accepted who have relevant work experience but have not graduated for a university. These applicants must prove relevant professional work experience and have to pass an aptitude test.

Program content

The "Adult Education" distance learning Master's degree encompasses 15 study modules. These include central aspects of adult education, the didactics and methodology of adult education, training management, training marketing, use of media, evaluation of training processes, program planning, as well as professional and vocational further training. The authors of the study modules, each of which is made up of multiple study materials, include renowned authorities and professors of adult education and further training.



This course is held entirely in German.

The . Science. Physics one-year PGDipEd (QTS) course.  is structured to develop a deep understanding of the pedagogy and didactics of Physics, grounded in practical competence in classrooms. Read more

The Science: Physics one-year PGDipEd (QTS) course is structured to develop a deep understanding of the pedagogy and didactics of Physics, grounded in practical competence in classrooms. You will be challenged to develop informed and justified decisions about how you approach your teaching, in order to enable you to continue to develop over your career. You will be expected to develop these insights, although in less depth, across all facets of the sciences. 

Students may be eligible for a bursary of up to £26,000 (depending on qualifications) in line with the government’s priorities to increase the number of Physics teachers or a scholarship of £28,000 in lieu of a bursary from the Institute of Physics.

We offer a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDipEd) rather than a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at the University of Birmingham, as we believe we should provide student teachers with the highest level of teacher training possible. Both qualifications lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) but the PGDipEd also offers the equivalent of 120 credits at Master’s level (out of 180), which makes it a highly rewarding course by combining both theory and practice.

Once you have completed your PGDipEd and successfully passed your induction year, you may return to study with us on a part-time basis to complete your Masters in Teaching Studies. Additionally, the School also offers a number of specialised Professional Development programmes which will enable you to further develop your career.

If you are a graduate Engineer or Physicist who would prefer to teach Physics with Mathematics, our Postgraduate Diploma Secondary Education (QTS) - Physics with Mathematics course offers this opportunity.

Course details

The School of Education at the University of Birmingham has a long tradition of delivering teacher training courses. Its teaching has been graded as 'outstanding' for the third consecutive time by Ofsted inspectors which reaffirms the University’s status as one of the UK’s leading institutions for excellence in teacher training. 

There is currently high demand for teachers of Science who have expertise in Physics and there are substantial bursaries associated with training in the subject.

The Initial Teacher Education course

The PGDipEd course lasts 36 weeks, of which 24 are spent in our partnership schools.

Teaching practice will take several forms: school placements and also team teaching while at the University. You will also get involved in small scale research projects for your assignments so that you can evaluate the theory in practice and integrate this learning into your own teaching.

Activity is central to learning how to teach physics and science as you need to learn how to act for yourself. This activity will include a good deal of exemplification of teaching, personal practice and collaborative hard thinking. Through this you will become better at planning lessons, assessing the success of your lessons and managing children within those lessons. You will also find out what children find hard about certain topics, how to vary your approach to minimise these difficulties, and so develop a range of teaching strategies, deploying many different technologies. As an essential part of this you will find yourself coming to grips with the national requirements and strategies, as well as engaging in the pleasure of doing some physics.
