Whichever pathway you choose, the programme will be delivered in partnership with Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust.

What will I study?

This programme consists of three distinct 20 credit clinical modules, two 30 credit clinical research modules and a 60 credit dissertation. Topics covered will include: Innovative aspects of evidence based practice in the medical speciality; Qualitative and quantitative research methods; Critiquing research findings; Writing a research proposal; Analysis of quantitative data; Systematic reviews; Research governance and ethics; Focus on a significant piece of investigative enquiry from conceptualisation through to completion.

How will I study?

The programme is delivered over two to three years, commencing in September each year. The academic year runs from September through to July, though the dissertation submission will be in September of the second year, with the option to defer the dissertation to the third year. The dissertation allows you to focus on a significant piece of investigative enquiry from conceptualisation through to completion.

You will experience a variety of teaching and learning strategies including lectures, seminars, individual and group tutorials and independent guided study.

Face-to-face sessions will be delivered at Edge Hill University and Wrightington Hospital. An online Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is used for some components of the programme. The clinical modules also have elements of practice-based learning which are typically facilitated in the workplace.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment methods include a research proposal, written assignments, completion of online activities and discussions, Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs), clinical log books, seminar presentations and a dissertation.

In addition to this, there is an attendance requirement of no less than 70% in order to pass each module.

Who will be teaching me?

The programme team consists of experienced academic staff from across Edge Hill University and expert clinicians from Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust and surrounding hospitals. This collaborative approach provides a team of high calibre individuals to support your learning. Additionally, leading physicians from related specialities are invited as guest speakers on the clinical modules. Edge Hill University enjoys an excellent reputation for the teaching quality of its programmes. All staff involved in the delivery of modules and pathways within this programme are currently involved in scholarly and research related activities which are congruent with their teaching responsibilities.

What are my career prospects?

Medical professionals need to continually seek ways to improve their career prospects in an increasingly competitive job market where a postgraduate qualification is often now deemed essential.

The MMed provides a highly relevant qualification for doctors working in a specialist area of medicine which will add to your portfolio of qualifications and provide you with opportunities for professional development supported by expert clinicians and academics.

Aims of the Programme

To enable the individual participant to achieve the educational outcomes required for effective teaching and support of learning. Participants on the MMEd programe will also develop skills within a chosen area of Medical Education.

Programme Content

The course is modular, with core and specialist module options. Modules are on-line and provide content, help students to manage the learning experience and provide activities that integrate theory and practice. The following themes are covered:

There are six main themes within the medical education programme of courses:
Teaching and learning
Assessment
Curriculum development
Leadership
Clinical teaching
Research

Students are enrolled on to the Masters programme on successful completion of the Diploma in Medical Education, and if/when a proposal for a Masters project has been agreed by the Board of Studies.

Online Distance Learning

Student- learning across the programme will include working with online materials, interaction with peer learners, reflection on practice, tutor contact and personal study.

Blended Learning

This is a wonderful opportunity for our distance learners to attend one or more of the modules here in Dundee, joining with our face-to-face study fellows on the one week teaching of modules. It will provide a way of fast tracking through the course and also allow for learning in a truly international context. Students will be fully supported by on-line learning following the face-to-face element.

Face to Face

Each module will be taught in a one week block with an additional two weeks for face-to-face students given over to peer-led sessions and the completion of assignments.

Methods of Assessment

Each module is assessed via written assignments, which vary in number, length and task. Students self-review their work in line with good pedagogical principles of assessment before submitting their work. Tutors feed back formatively on this self-review and summatively on the assignment, thus entering a feedback dialogue.

General Information

The term museum encompasses a broad range of organisations with a focus on learning in settings outside the traditional classroom. Museums include cultural centres, science centres, historic sites, parks, planetaria, art museums and art galleries. Contemporary museum education establishes museums as innovative learning environments rather than repositories of artefacts. As museums and other informal learning sites contemplate new roles within society it will be incumbent upon museum professionals, and particularly museum educators, to become catalysts for different ways of thinking about the educational roles and potentials of museums and other informal learning sites, teaching and learning in museum settings as well as exploring new relationships between museums and the broader community.

Quick Facts

The Master of Museum Education is a unique graduate degree program focusing on the study of education and learning that occurs in museums and other informal learning contexts. This programs draws together Museum professionals, educators and those with an interest in using the community to support teaching and learning to further their thinking and scholarship around museums as sites of education and learning.

As museums contemplate new roles within society it will be incumbent upon museum professionals, and particularly museum educators, to become catalysts for different ways of thinking about the educational roles and potentials of museums and other informal learning sites, teaching and learning in museum settings as well as exploring new relationships between museums and the broader community.

This program will provide the necessary skills and knowledge for careers as educators in informal settings such as museums, locally and globally, and to support classroom-based teachers in expanding their use of the community as a learning site. The program model is one that recognizes the need for contextualizing museum education curriculum in both home country context (which has its own unique social and political context) and in the Canadian cultural context of museum education, in which practices may be conceptualized in other beneficial ways to that of the student’s own country of origin. The end result are graduating students that are then better able to influence the systems in their own countries with strengthened capacities to introduce beneficial reforms around museum education.

Upon completing the MMEd degree, students will be able to:
- Critically analyze dominant and alternative theories and discourses of learning and teaching in informal settings
- Identify the influences of multiple perspectives (i.e., Local, Aboriginal, International) in facilitating learning experiences in/within museums and communities
- Develop learning opportunities to integrate learning within classrooms, and learning in informal settings such as museums and other informal learning sites
- Develop tools to implement and sustain educational programs outside the traditional classroom
- Develop skills and knowledge to understand and address the increasing complexities of issues facing informal learning settings
- Evaluate the potential for working with a variety of learning communities
- Analyze different approaches to teaching and program development, settings, and perspectives
