Course summary

OVERVIEW

Evaluate the ways we teach science, technology, engineering and mathematics in schools. Explore misconceptions in learning, how research affects teaching, and strategies for change management. Challenge your own practice as a STEM educator.

Through our part-time masters degree, you’ll explore learning and classroom practice in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects.

You’ll focus on your practice and bring examples from where you work to sessions, and discuss your issues and thoughts with fellow students.

You’ll also question your existing views on STEM education. We will challenge you to think about your role and question aspects such as: How can you develop your practice? What could you change? What possibilities are there to generate innovation?

You’ll have a series of guest lectures to help you further develop your knowledge. Past topics include the construction of computing in the curriculum, careers in STEM, and the place of intuition and how it leads to misconception in science learning.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Through this course, you’ll develop the critical thinking skills and theoretical knowledge to question existing educational practice.

Our aim is to change the way you think about STEM education so that you can develop yourself further as an educational practitioner.

We’ll help you to understand and evaluate your own practice, and consider how contemporary educational research applies to your role.

As a graduate, you’ll have the skills and confidence to adapt your future practice and create different opportunities for your STEM students. Graduates include a PE teacher who is now a maths teacher and a parent helper who wanted to develop her professional skills to help students. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards during this course.
