Course summary

OVERVIEW

The MEd Leadership for Learning course is designed for educational professionals from a variety of contexts (for education staff and those involved in children’s services such as educational psychologists, speech and language therapists and those with an education remit) who are experienced practitioners. It will enhance your professional practice in, and understanding of, current developments in the area of educational leadership.

The modules within this course are delivered fully online and encourage education-based projects/innovations, which should benefit the wider educational community and enable participants to become more effective practitioners in their own specific professional context. Participants will be encouraged to reflect upon and enhance their practice and understanding of current trends in the area of Leadership for Learning and to consider the possible implications there may be for future practice.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be in a position to lead initiatives within their professional context and to introduce innovation into their own teaching, providing a positive and supportive role model for their peers.

Teaching & Assessment

A recognised innovative feature is the establishment of online learning communities for each module that allow students to share reflections on developing practice via weekly forum discussions. Lecturers support and direct student participation in these discussions to promote critical, analytical and reflective thinking about leadership practices in the educational setting.

ASSESSMENT

You will be taught through Moodle, our virtual learning environment (VLE) and will provide innovative and flexible learning opportunities for aspiring leaders of learning linked to your own sector.

A range of assessment methods are incorporated across our course which are designed to meet with your ‘learning’ needs, to ensure that you achieve the learning outcomes associated with the module.
