personal research
critical reflection on previous work in your area of interest
practical work such as the design of instructional or training materials suitable for a specific context
Your dissertation is prepared under the supervision of a tutor.
Teaching, Learning and Assessment The modules are taught with an emphasis on active learning methods appropriate for adult education in small to medium-sized groups (normally 12-15). We encourage your participation in sessions.

Each module is assessed by means of written assignments and portfolio tasks. Assignments link theory and practice and include research elements, as well as appropriate background reading. Portfolio tasks invite you to develop your capacities as a learner.

Professional Enrichment There will be opportunities for professional enrichment outside the normal training sessions, including observation of teaching and visits to other educational settings. There is also a professional attachment to an educational institution which is an opportunity to engage with the school experience of trainee teachers.
