University of East London

Course Introduction

Education course is about extending your understanding of teaching theory and practice. The course is designed for those who are teaching, or are spending a significant part of each week supporting teaching and learning. It aims to have a direct impact on your teaching approaches and help you to become a more rounded, reflective practitioner. The course focuses on the key educational processes that underpin learning, teaching and the positive management of change. You will develop your understanding of current policy, theory and research and consider how these relate to your day-to-day practice. You will enhance your ability to analyse, critique and develop your own and others? practice while building upon your intellectual, organisational and professional skills. Research skills are incorporated into all modules.

The MA Education at the University of East London is not purely theoretical. All of the teaching sessions and assignments are designed to support you to develop your practice. You will study theories of teaching and learning ? how people learn, what motivates them to learn and how to create independent learners. Modules also cover ways to support the specific needs of individual learners, and how to plan, implement and evaluate changes in practice. Crucially, you will look at current thinking. Things move extremely fast in education and we regularly update modules to reflect the most up-to-date policy and research. The content of modules applies to all teachers, rather than being key stage or subject specific. Assignments are designed to allow you to personalise your learning. So whatever the context that you work in, you will be able to apply the knowledge gained on the course.
