Course content

The Advanced Practice route enables participants working in educational settings to reflect on their own practice, taking a professional academic approach. The programme's presentation is fully online, or a combination of online and face-to-face for those who can attend. A separate MA Advanced Educational Practice school-based cohort group (minimum of 12 participants) may be available.

Through an established virtual learning environment, participants follow directed tasks including reading, video and audio clips, as well as full lectures presented by IOE academics. Responses are then shared with the online community and participants are encouraged to respond to each other.

Participants 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 participants are involved in.

        Assessment

        Modules within this route are normally taught fully online through our virtual learning environment (VLE) Moodle. Attendance is measured through access to the material and activities, responses in forums and completion of tasks shared online. All participants are assesed through coursework (which may be two or more short essays, a long essay, portfolio or presentation) at the end of each module, and receive both formative written feedback on a draft and summative feedback on a final submission.
