Year 1 Modules
Developing Effective Teaching and Learning (60 credits) - Compulsory
This module aims to look at the structure of learning within our education systems. It also aims to challenge thinking about how learning takes place in schools and colleges. It is designed for those who are interested in exploring ways of developing high quality teaching and learning where students are empowered to take responsibility for their learning. These issues will be examined and critically assessed from a theoretical and practical perspective. Each participant will carry out a small-scale research project on one area of your own educational practice, the outcomes of which will be disseminated and have an impact on your whole institutional approach to learning. This module is a blended course which involves workshops, independent study and active involvement in on-line discussions.
