Learning & Teaching

Course Description
This programme, comprising 30 credits at Level 9 on the National Framework, consists of the first two modules of the Master of Arts in Learning and Teaching, which has been running in DkIT since 2010.

The focus of the course is on applying good practice principles in learning and teaching to improve your teaching. Those who successfully complete these modules will have the option to transfer to the MA programme, subject to meeting entrance requirements and scheduling.

Who Should Apply?
This professional development programme is designed to support participants in improving their own practice. It is aimed at those involved in teaching and/or training, for example in adult education, further and higher education, post-primary or within private or public sector organisations.

This course is ideal for anyone who is currently working in education or training and development and wants to improve their learning and teaching practice. This is a professional development programme rather than a teacher training programme. It does NOT confer the basis for registration with the Teaching Council.

The programme is practice focused so applicants must be engaged in sufficient teaching to allow them to meet the programme learning outcomes. Applicants are not required to teach at any particular level but the nature of their teaching should be conducive to meeting the learning outcomes, for example, involving the assessment (formal or informal) of learning. Applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
