This Graduate Diploma has been developed to enable participants to reflect on their own educational practice, taking a professional academic approach. The programme's presentation is either fully online for individual students or mixed mode for those joining a school-based cohort group (minimum of 20 participants for the whole programme which includes MA participants).
Through an established virtual learning environment, students follow directed tasks including reading, video and audio clips and full lectures presented by IOE academics. Responses are then shared with the online community and students are encouraged to respond to each other.
Students are supported in exploring their practice through engagement with research including academic and professional literature, so examining updated knowledge about theories and practices in education.
The study is expected to support the everyday educational practices students are involved in through engagement in reflection and critical analysis of those practices.
