Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Whether you work in a school, hospital, for a local authority or in another field where teaching is part of your role, this course will significantly develop your knowledge of current research, policy and practice in education.

You will examine the influences that have shaped modern education, from the philosophy behind teaching methods to government policies that direct educational practice across a variety of settings, both inside and outside the classroom. We will give you a strong grounding in these areas, allowing you to gain a greater understanding of how people learn and of how to teach and assess effectively.

You will relate your learning to your own experiences and you will be able to tailor the course to your career needs and interests by selecting from a range of option modules. Offered as Pathway modules, you could choose to specialise in one of two areas: Inclusion & Special Education; Leadership & Management. You will also have the opportunity to study an option module from one of our other masters courses.

At Leeds Beckett we are passionate about education and the expertise of our course team reflects our commitment to providing you with the tools to make improvements in your work environment.

The expertise of our teaching team is broad and covers many aspects of education from educational philosophy to child development and language acquisition to special needs. Our team also includes experts in professional and cultural identity in education, leadership and management in education and many other areas.

You will be studying alongside students from a range of different backgrounds and educational environments giving you the opportunity to share your experiences and learn from each other's teaching methods.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
