The PgCert/PgDip/MSc in Medical Education programme is committed to promoting excellence in learning and teaching for health professionals. This distance learning programme is delivered entirely online and has been established for eight years. This innovative programme is for all medical, dental and other health professionals who aim to professionalise the role of the clinician as teacher.

It recognises the diverse, complex and challenging contexts of both those new to educator roles and responsibilities and those with considerable years of experience. The overall aim of the course is to develop a community of educators committed to promote improvements in both ‘what’ and ‘how’ we teach future healthcare professionals.

The course is highly practical and aims to model best practice in learning and teaching and draws upon a wide range of innovative approaches to learner support and development. The course is organised into a series of modules that involve interactive activities delivered within an online environment. These activities are conducted within groups, each one being facilitated by an online tutor. This affords an opportunity to explore the module topic through discussion and clarification of understanding and also gives the opportunity and time to apply new learning through the online discussions, tasks, wikis and assignments. Through this there is ample time to reflect on own practise and to share experiences and new insights with colleagues. This is a truly interactive programme.

A comprehensive menu of online modules will allow you to contribute to critical dialogues that promote deeper insights into educational theory and principles applied to clinical practice.

The programme is accredited by the Higher Education Academy, conferring Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy upon successful completion of the Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education and evidence of engagement with the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). The programme is also aligned to the Academy of Medical Educators professional standards enabling you to apply for recognition of the Academy of Medical Educators.

Our extensive experience in online course delivery means that we consistently get high student satisfaction levels and positive feedback from past and present students as well as external examiners and evaluators.

Attendance

This course is offered fully online and is completed part-time by distance learning. You do not need to visit the University at any stage to successfully complete this course.

The Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) Coastal Zone Management and the Master of Science (MSc) Coastal Zone Management are linked courses. You need to successfully complete the PgDip (120 credit points) before you can transfer to the MSc (a further 60 credit points). To get the full MSc you need to successfully complete 180 credit points.

For part-time postgraduate courses one module is taken each semester and hence the PgDip takes two years (4 semesters) to complete. Modules for the programme are available on a two-year rotational basis so the order in which you will complete the modules depends on when you start the course.

The MSc consists of an advanced project module and an additional two semesters are required to complete this element of the programme. In total the whole MSc programme will take three years part-time (6 semesters).

Professional recognition

Course detail

- Description -

As part of our department's successful modular programme, running for over a decade, the MA is constantly updated and draws on the latest research in the development of computational thinking, e-learning/technologically enhanced learning and digital literacy. Through the programme you will develop a critical understanding of your professional expertise in developing computational thinking as well as using and managing digital technologies for teaching and/or learning. You will have the opportunity to develop your practical capabilities by designing and evaluating activities using a variety of approaches to learning including a range of digital technologies and / technologically enhanced learning, digital literacy and the development of computational thinking.
The programme is open to UK, EU and international students and is taught using a blend of face-to-face and on-line activities.

- Course purpose -

For all those who teach, lecture or organise educational provision at any level. To enable professionals concerned with education to reflect on their practice and to inform such reflection by extending their knowledge. You will be made aware of significant current developments and of contemporary pedagogical practices both in computing in education and in enabling Technology Enhanced Learning. Those who teach computing as a subject can select modules that update their understanding of recent curricula and develop their pedagogical thinking. A flexible subject knowledge enhancement programme will run in parallel for ICT teachers who need to upgrade their subject knowledge for teaching new computing curricula.

- Course format and assessment -

There are no examinations - all modules are assessed by written work.

Core modules:

• Recent Developments in Digital Technologies in Education
• A subject specific dissertation

The programme may be taken over one year (full time) or two years (part time). A serving teacher would normally complete the MA on a part time basis and complete one module in each of the autumn and spring terms in year 1, plus a further two modules and the dissertation in year 2.

The sessions for each module normally take place on one evening each week from 5.30 - 7.30pm at the Waterloo Campus. The compulsory Recent Developments in Digital Technologies in Education module involves two face-to-face sessions on Saturdays and 10 online sessions.

Career prospects

Career enhancement; research; educational software design.
