Course Description

The MA in Teaching and Learning will support your professional development as a practitioner in the health and education sectors.

This is a new award and it indicates an innovative engagement in pedagogical issues. It carries considerable weight as a recognition of high professional standards.

The course will give you an understanding of the principles and practice of effective teaching, including planning, assessment, evaluation, curriculum development and the professional ethics of teaching and learning.

Throughout the course you will draw on and focus upon your work-based experiences as the basis of your studies, utilising your knowledge, scholarship and professional enquiry skills. The development of your learning will be facilitated through reflection with, and support from, peers, mentors and tutors.

What you will learn

This course enables rigorous academic investigation into education, with the objective of supporting your professional development in the field. At its heart is how, as an educational professional, you put advanced theories into practice. You will learn how to explore educational research and make informed comment on the applicability, relevance and usefulness of theories, concepts, models, methodologies and techniques applied to practice.

You will acquire a range of advanced skills and abilities necessary for you to pursue the demands of your chosen programme successfully and apply your skills and learning in the workplace.

As a practitioner and a reader you will develop advanced skills in the handling of educational research. You will learn how to apply the knowledge, skills and abilities you gain in your own professional context; enabling you to address areas of concern and any development needs in an informed and justifiable manner.

You will learn to evaluate, review and reflect upon your assignment/project work, and identify those areas requiring further development via action planning and target setting as part of the process of personal development planning (PDP).
