This is a part-time MSc programme for qualified teachers who are interested in developing their professional practice through engaging in educational research.
The course will enable teachers to work closely with others, collaborating both with other participants and with their school colleagues in developing new ways of working and of thinking about teaching. It will also give teachers the skills and confidence necessary to draw on high-quality research in developing their practice and generating new knowledge about effective teaching strategies.
The focus is on learning and teaching in schools (or other educational settings, as appropriate), and the programme is rooted in the participants’ own school or classroom experiences. It is open to teachers from around the world, with two different routes available. Route A is intended to be more convenient for domestic students, requiring attendance at four or five seminars over the year. Route B is intend to be more convenient for overseas students, requiring attendance for a week each year, normally in October. All students are expected to engage in online activities, whichever route they are on, but Route B students will be expected to engage over the seminar weekends, with their peers in Oxford.
The course content is made up of four generic topics: Teachers and Learners; Curriculum, pedagogy and assessment; Responding to pupils; Schools, equity and achievement.
