Northern England has an extraordinary diversity of landscapes and geological features, and as the largest county, Yorkshire preserves a large proportion of them. From the rugged North York Moors and the limestone pavements of the Yorkshire Dales to the coalfields of South Yorkshire and the shifting coastlines of Holderness, it is in many respects a microcosm of the region.

In The Geology of Yorkshire and Northern England, students will obtain a regional geological understanding with which to interpret larger-scale Earth processes and structures. The programme will provide students with training in advanced palaeoenvironmental analysis and science communication skills. Students will also assess Yorkshire and Northern England's importance to current controversies in Earth sciences, from fracking to climate change, and acquire an understanding of the region's vital role in the history of geology.

This is a part-time Postgraduate Diploma delivered wholly online in a fully supported learning environment. The programme starts in late September/early October each academic year, and places are limited to ensure a constructive atmosphere for discussions. Students can exit with a Postgraduate Certificate after successful completion of the first year if their circumstances change.

Overview

The programme will aim to:
-Introduce the key tenets and sub-disciplines of geology, focussing particularly on the geological evolution of northern England
-Provide students with a holistic understanding of the geological origins and history of Yorkshire and northern England

This module provides a theoretical look at the world of consumers and their behaviour in the digital environment, drawing on consumer behaviour, product, brand and communications theories to interpret and understand how consumers are respond to different technologies. This module sets out to enable students to learn how to operationalise the key marketing, consumer behaviour and communication theories to enable students to critically appraise the swiftly changing digital marketing channels in the light of marketing theory.

Digital and social media (10 credits)

This module provides an intensely practical education in the core digital technologies, such as websites, search, display media, affiliate networks and mobile. Students will explore how they are being used and can assist in the delivery of marketing goals.

Research methods (20 credits)

This module provides students with the learning, tools and techniques necessary for the completion of their dissertation, the final component for students wishing to obtain a Master's degree in Digital Marketing. Students will learn about the methods and tools of research and develop an understanding of the logic, sequence and structure of a research project, thus enabling students to design a logical structure for their dissertations. The aim of the module is to ensure that students are aware of the vast array of methodologies available to them and facilitating their ability to produce an original piece of work which adds to their existent body of knowledge and will help students explore the sources and types of information required for the research projects and the practical challenges associated with obtaining information.

Teaching and learning

The taught component of the LSBU course provides students with the module Marketing in the Digital Environment, which introduces elements of marketing science, changing consumer behaviour, new media, branding, and the communications process. In addition, the Research Methods module will develop your ability to apply qualitative and quantitative analytical techniques to interpret relevant business data and derive effective and ethical solutions. You will also be given the opportunity, through the dissertation, to develop an individual approach to a research project, enabling you to specialise in a particular area of digital marketing that is of interest to you and your career.

Employability

The MSc Digital Marketing is designed to produce graduates with advanced expertise. You may find employment in middle to top management positions in large corporates or small charities, in modern e-businesses or public sector organisations. Digital marketing is the way of the business world for the future and the opportunities are vast.

Successful students from other LSBU marketing orientated Masters programmes have entered into many different types of organisations including multinational and global companies, public sector organisations, charities and startups.

Graduates have also found it a great addition to their professional Diploma qualifications, enabling them to develop a greater confidence in their work through being able to understand and apply more advanced levels of theory and practice to the marketing and business challenges that they face every day.

Sam Moore, (2012) said:"Being able to cover theory and real examples, both in Digital Marketing and Research Methods subject areas has given me valuable additional skills and knowledge to draw on in the workplace. The Masters requires commitment. If you're prepared to dedicate some time to the course, you'll reap the benefits both personally and at work."

MA Education and Professional Enquiry is a part-time programme for experienced teachers that enables you to develop the skills to become an informed practitioner researcher.

You’ll gain theoretical and practical perspectives on teaching and learning, and we’ll help you apply such ideas to your classroom practice. You’ll look at the language development and importance of classroom and teacher-pupil dialogue, while also examining barriers to learning that impede pupils’ progress.

We’ll introduce you to the action-enquiry practitioner research cycle and other methodological approaches so you can use a range of techniques to inform your own professional practice. You’ll learn how to create, interpret and communicate your findings, evaluate current research, and interpret attainment data.

And we’ll work with you to orientate your professional practice within a school, leadership, policy and national context. You’ll investigate various definitions of school culture and ethos, and examine influencing factors. You’ll consider how to lead teaching and learning in a classroom, and departmental and whole school contexts, and considering collaborative practice and exploring leadership skills.

We’ll also examine developments in the school curriculum, innovative teaching methods and current issues in assessment, while also helping you to manage effective group work in the classroom.

MA Education and Professional Enquiry gives you the opportunity to build upon your existing qualifications and professional and academic experiences, and use these as part of your accreditation by towards the programme. Studying further postgraduate modules and completing a dissertation in year three allows you to qualify for the full MA award. For details of the prior accreditation through M Level PGCE or a portfolio of experience, please contact the programme leader.

We recognise the demands put on all teachers working full-time, so we designed the MA Education and Professional Enquiry to ensure that the workload in any one year is not excessive and you will be able to focus on issues that have specific interest and relevance to you and your school.

The programme only requires your attendance at eight Saturday teaching days in the first two years of the programme, alongside private study. When you write your dissertation under the supervision of a research-active academic in your third year, you will be able to access tutorial support either face-to-face, online or by telephone.

Course content

In your first year, you'll examine key contemporary theories on how children learn, develop and use language in the classroom and discover how to use theory to critically analyse classroom practice and facilitate effective teaching.

You'll also develop a critical and practical understanding of how to use appropriate research methods in the classroom and with teachers and learners, and learn how these techniques can help you evaluate, reflect, and improve your professional practice.

You’ll build on this foundation in the following year when you'll examine the concept of school "cultures", consider developments in school curriculum, and explore innovative teaching techniques that can support children's motivation, engagement and learning. You'll also study the importance of teacher collaboration and effective leadership in a classroom and managerial context.

This knowledge will also inform your dissertation, which makes up your final year. You’ll conduct a small-scale research project that relates to your own interests in the field of education.
