Curriculum Design and Development (Core)

This module provides a basis for understanding pedagogy in relation to the curriculum, theoretical approaches and classroom practice. The module provides the knowledge, skills and understanding for teachers to recognise and respond to the needs of learners, schools and other stakeholders in the design and development of an effective curriculum. You will explore a range of educational theories and research which they will critically analyse and evaluate in relation to pedagogic principles and practice. You will be expected to engage in the active synthesis of theory and practice.

Research-Informed Practice (Core)

Through this research-based module, you will be challenged to engage critically with appropriate academic reading and research findings and synthesise their studies with a negotiated area of education related to their setting. You will be encouraged to develop an analytical approach to understanding the nature of research methods and approaches, and to assess their relevance to professional practice. Assessment will be provided through formative online tasks such as a written proposal relating to the subject of your enquiry.

Inclusive Practice (Optional)

This module focuses on critical debate and discussion exploring inclusion from a range of perspectives including attitudes, policy and practice in order to best serve the needs of all learners in classrooms today. Ensuring all learners achieve good outcomes is complex. This module offers a range of opportunities to explore the concept of ‘inclusive practice’, relating to areas such as Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, second language learners, children from a range of socio-economic backgrounds and the associated educational interventions designed to support learners with any exceptionality. Consideration of strategies to reduce potential barriers to success, whilst promoting participation in the classroom, affords the opportunity for discourse around learning in diverse educational settings.

Innovative 21st Century Teaching (Optional)

The use of information technology is growing rapidly in education institutions locally, nationally and globally through a wealth of innovative tools and services that engage learners and educators in the learning process.
