Course content

Taught at our Riverside Campus in Chester, this course provides a progressive framework for the professional learning and career development of educational practitioners.

The MA in Educational Practice is a practice-focused qualification which aims to help teachers and other educational practitioners to extend their professional skills and abilities at Master's level. It aims to develop a critical engagement with practice through systematic enquiry and engagement with research, literature, policy and curriculum frameworks.

Why Study Educational Practice with us?

Our course provides a progressive framework for the professional learning and career development of educational practitioners. It is suitable for both experienced practitioners as well as those at the beginning of their career.

During our course you will use your experiences as an educational professional to critically reflect on your own practice and develop confidence in sharing good practice and articulating new insights.

Using our excellent research facilities, local, national and international perspectives will be brought into focus. This will help you to understand issues within the field of education, and will benefit your learners.

What will I learn?

Modules cover all aspects of working in educational contexts, including topics such as teaching, learning and assessment; child and adolescent development; and curriculum development.

You will have opportunities to assess up-to-date research findings and how they complement or challenge current approaches, as well as pursuing your own research, which will be fully supported.

In addition to the generic pathway, the course offers subject specialist pathways in English, Mathematics and Science.

How will I be taught?

Our course is taught twice termly at weekends at Riverside Campus and University Centre Shrewsbury, and at twilight seminars in schools (by negotiation).

Delivery is through taught sessions which foster lively debate and deliberate and contest issues that are relevant and current. Online resources and individual tutorials with lecturers in your chosen field of study will support your learning and extend your knowledge and practice.

Each module entails 200 hours of study, of which 20 are taught and 80 are self-directed.
