Summary

This programme offers teachers and educational professionals opportunities to learn across a range of areas within the broad field of education.

Education professionals in the twenty-first century are expected to have strong knowledge and skills in core areas as well as an ability to move flexibly in and out of a variety of specialist areas. This Educational Studies programme is designed to meet these diverse needs by offering students the opportunity to select modules from a wide range of topics including: learning and teaching, assessment, educational leadership, inclusion and special educational needs.

The programme offers students an opportunity to familiarise themselves with current research on these topics. In addition, students are encouraged to consider and reflect on the practical implications of theoretical perspectives and research findings.

The MEd in Educational Studies is open to teachers in primary-, secondary- and tertiary-level institutions as well as to professionals in other fields of education.

On completion of the modules students will be able to: - demonstrate a broad-based knowledge and understanding of educational research, policy, practice and theory covered by the modules of their choice

  • analyse and critically apply examples of the research literature in the chosen modules (and, where appropriate, skills)

  • reflect critically on their own personal practice
