COURSE OVERVIEW

  • Develop your skills and knowledge for professional growth
  • Link your learning to your professional practice
  • Enjoy a mix of independent study and discussion

Education at Winchester is grounded in research-based teaching – you construct practical theories of the situations which confront you in your professional life and test them in action. The programme is suitable for teachers working in primary, secondary and post-compulsory settings.

You build up credits by undertaking a range of optional modules, allowing you to focus on issues relevant to your own practice. Many of the pathways through the MA enable you to explore an element of your subject knowledge or pedagogy, such as your classroom practice, school leadership role or an aspect of your school improvement, as part of your MA research.

Start by completing a core module of either Quantitative Methods in Social Research or Qualitative Methods in Social Research, followed by a choice of optional modules for further independent study. These enable you to identify and develop an aspect of your professional work with a tutor’s support. The modules are flexible, allowing you to submit assignments of between 4,000 and 8,000 words. Options include Investigating Practice through a Project, Critical Thinking and Writing, Reflecting on Professional Practice, and Considering Debates in Professional Practice.

Within this structure, there are a range of pathways through the MA, enabling you to specialise. These include Primary Maths Mastery, Teaching English as an Additional Language (TEAL), Wellbeing and Education, Mentoring and Coaching, Pathway for NQTs, National SENCO Accreditation, Early Years Practice, Religious Education in Context and Independent Work-based Research.

The teaching team is drawn from Education, Health and Social Care, and includes experienced specialists such as local authority inspection and advisory teams. Group twilight seminars with a tutor and other course members will ensure that you are provided with guidance and support to design, implement and write up your projects and assignments.

Assessment

Assessments take the form of reviews of literature, reflective accounts of practice in relation to research, portfolios, case studies or workplace-based assignments.

Our validated courses may adopt a range of means of assessing your learning. An indicative, and not necessarily comprehensive, list of assessment types you might encounter includes essays, portfolios, supervised independent work, presentations, written exams, or practical performances.

We ensure all students have an equal opportunity to achieve module learning outcomes. As such, where appropriate and necessary, students with recognised disabilities may have alternative assignments set that continue to test how successfully they have met the module's learning outcomes.

Further details on assessment types used on the course you are interested in can be found by attending an open evening or contacting our teaching staff.

We are committed to providing timely and appropriate feedback to you on your academic progress and achievement in order to enable you to reflect on your progress and plan your academic and skills development effectively. You are also encouraged to seek additional feedback from your course tutors.

The MEd Tesol at the University of Exeter is aimed at qualified teachers and others who work in TESOL at either primary, secondary or tertiary levels in different educational contexts around the world.

Whether you are a qualified teacher or new to the profession, we offer a route within our flexible MEd TESOL which is tailored to your needs. Built on 20 years' experience of English language teaching, our Masters programme offers two routes; one for teaching practitioners seeking to develop their professional skills and the other for those wanting to enter a career in language teaching.

The MEd TESOL has international recognition and is seen as an important professional qualification worldwide to enable TESOL teachers to enhance their career prospects. In particular, it is often seen as an important entry qualification for educators who want to work at University level. At Exeter, depending on the modules taken, completion of the MEd TESOL can help you to move into new areas within TESOL such as teacher education and training, English for special purposes, materials development and the teaching of English to young learners.

TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is a broad term, encompassing a number of other terms related to the various contexts in which English is taught around the world. These include:

- TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), which refers specifically to the teaching of English in countries where it is not an official language
- TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language), which refers to those contexts where English is acquired as a second language, in addition to a first language, as is the case where English is used as the language of government, for example, or education
- TEAL (Teaching English as an Additional Language).

Hands on experience

The programme offers you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience by undertaking visits to local language schools in Exeter.

You will also develop your understanding of theoretical issues in language teaching and the implications of these for classroom practice through insights shared by guest speakers.

Programme for all TESOL professionals

The programme will:

* develop and extend your understanding of key aspects of linguistics and learning theory and their influence on the teaching of English to speakers of other languages;

* enable you to make informed professional decisions regarding language teaching in the workplace and justify these to others;

* enable you to select, adapt and design materials and activities for language teaching appropriate to your own teaching context;

* enable you to investigate and research aspects of TESOL in ways that will support continuing development and practice as a foreign language teaching professional.

This Masters pathway gives you the opportunity to study another aspect of education by selecting up to 30 credits of optional modules from the other MA Education options.(http://www.exeter.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught/education/educationma/)

It is also possible to obtain a postgraduate diploma in TESOL (120 credits) or a postgraduate certificate (60 credits).
