About the course

The MA Learning and Teaching in Higher Education is an integrated and supported course that enables you to:

Take a lead in the development of the teaching of your subject
Critically engage with theories of learning and teaching in higher education
Engage in research in learning and teaching in higher education
The HE Academy-accredited option within the course leads to the award of Postgraduate Certificate. This engages with the course’s aims at the level of the subject, developing practitioners who are able to take a role in the development of teaching within their subject, and who are informed by theory, research and engagement with research related to their practice. The full MA option develops practitioners with a broader view of the teaching and learning process through additional modules focusing on the wider context. These practitioners are expected to engage with national debates about the development of learning and teaching, both within their subject and in general, and to enhance knowledge of the processes of learning and teaching through their dissertation/project.

Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities

Assessment

You will be assessed by a variety of methods including essays, portfolios, presentations and project reports, as well as assessment and evaluation by your peers.
