The Practitioner Enquiry MEd offers teachers, school leaders and other educators the means to engage in enquiry and research related to their own practices and contexts. Practitioner enquiry is associated with school improvement, teachers' professional development and educational innovation.
There is a general pathway and a leadership pathway – the latter requires you to focus on modules and a dissertation related to educational leadership and management.
Course participants come from across educational phases (early years to HE) and between educational sectors (schools, museums, colleges and universities, and educational consultancies). This diversity helps to create a dynamic and supportive learning environment in which you learn considerably from each other as well as from the course leaders.
The courses encourage you to take a practical and informed approach to the 'plan, do, review' cycle, and helps you to become more critically reflective to develop approaches rooted in evidence.
You will complete taught modules, to suit your interests and complement your career progression. There are also specific modules designed to support early career and leadership progression. In each module, appropriate professional learning is based on exploring the links between practice, theory and research.
Modules can be taken in any combination and order, allowing you to create a tailor-made course to suit your professional needs and interests.
The modules develop innovative approaches to meeting the demands of your work, whether just starting out in your career or taking significant responsibilities for educational excellence and actively supporting other professionals.
The knowledge and skills you develop through taught material will be consolidated and extended through completion of a dissertation.
