Course content

This course supports those working in HE, Further Education and Skills Sector and broader educational settings to critically engage with their professional practice as part of their continuing development. The PGDip is a separate exit award and is also the first part of the MEd route. It is possible to either work towards achieving the PGDip in Professional Practice as an end goal or take it as the first part of the MEd. The PGDip is delivered at the Preston Campus. This course is an internal progression route for our teaching toolkit, PG Cert LTHE, and also for our well established teacher education partnership, which offers PGCE and Cert Ed awards in post-compulsory education. The overriding aim of the course is to support professional development as a reflective researcher within a collaborative research community made up of peers and tutors. It will build research confidence to enable progression to further research activity and reflection.

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT
Assessment methods include: written assignments, presentation, academic poster, professional writing, dialogue, critical review and working with curriculum documents.

ACADEMIC EXPERTISE
The course is delivered by experienced staff with relevant research or practice in FE and HE in the areas of teaching and learning, professional development and education. Members of staff also teach on the MEd and EdD.
