This part-time MA Education modular course aims to support participants in developing as critically reflective practitioners with a broader and deeper understanding of their context, phase or subject. Students are supported in analysing and carrying out small-scale enquiries, underpinned by and connecting theory with practice. The course includes portfolio and independent modules which do not require regular attendance at UWE, enabling flexible and distance study, as well as taught modules. The later stages of the course require attendance at one compulsory taught module, Researching Education, in advance of the Dissertation module.
