Postgraduate Award in Educational Studies: Dialogic Teaching

Course content

"Dialogue is not like other forms of communication (chatting, arguing, negotiating and so on). Dialogue is an activity directed towards discovery and new understanding, which stands to improve the knowledge, insight, or sensitivity of its participants. Dialogue represents a continuous, developmental communicative interchange through which we stand to gain a fuller apprehension of the world, ourselves, and one another." Dialogue in Teaching: Theory and Practice, Burbules 2003, p.8.

Aims of the programme

In this 30-credit Postgraduate Award in Educational Studies course, students will:

- develop their understanding of educational dialogue through discussion and critical analysis of theoretical and empirical research, engage with concrete examples, and reflect on their relevance to the classroom;
- systematically work towards the planning and delivery of dialogic lessons;
- analyse and report on findings, and plan future approaches to dialogic teaching and learning in the classroom.
