Other Information:
While the overall award is the MA in Learning and Teaching (with Honours), exit awards are available at both Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma level.

Blended and flexible learning strategies are used considerably throughout the Programme.

All modules are technology enhanced, modelling best practice approaches in e-pedagogy.

Researching one’s practice is incorporated into all modules using action research/case study type methodologies. Deep learning, incorporating practice-based research, is therefore promoted.

Coursework is mainly evidence-based and theory to practice applications considered a priority.

Portfolio-based research showing progression and development in relevant professional contexts/subject teaching is also prioritised.
