MEd - Master of Education
Flexible Learning Design Education Studies
The MEd is designed for qualified teachers and other educational professionals working in a range of contexts and age phases. This degree will enable you to:
The modules on offer will enable practitioners working in educational contexts to engage in pedagogically-focused study and research on a range of key cross-curricular topics that reflect and explore the issues and challenges that they face in their work across the 5-19 age range. These topics are: inclusive practices; mentoring, coaching and development of effective leadership skills; mental health and wellbeing. The course has been developed following consultation with University of Leicester Partnership schools and PGCE alumni.
Alongside these modules, this course will provide an introduction to reflective practice (for those experienced teachers without Masters credits) and a solid grounding in practitioner research methods for all those who enrol. The Practitioner Research Methods module will prepare you for researching and writing a dissertation on a topic of your choice which is relevant to the educational context in which you work.
Teaching and learning
Teaching and learning will be through face-to-face seminars, small study groups and tutorials with materials and additional structured support provided via Blackboard and email. All students will be expected to participate fully in course sessions and to develop their skills as critical friends during specific module activities.
Careers and employability
The MEd should provide qualified teachers and other education professionals with further opportunities for career enhancement either in their existing workplace or beyond.
Many of our former Masters students in the School of Education have also progressed to doctoral work on completion of their degree. Opportunities for PhD research will be discussed with you during the final year of your course.
