Course Summary

The PACES-MEd Mathematics Education route is for anyone with a research or professional interest in mathematics education at any level of education (primary, secondary, or tertiary), wanting to undertake advanced study in a world-class setting. The Mathematics Education route is taught by a specialist team, and its student cohort is drawn primarily from UK-based professionals most of whom continue in their full-time posts while taking the course part-time.

The Mathematics Education course develops students' understanding of a number of important issues in the field of mathematics education. Students learn to interpret and critically engage with ideas and debates in mathematics education research in three ways:

  • taught sessions in mathematics education;
  • work on course assignments under the supervision of a member of the teaching team; and
  • participation in seminars led by students on the route and in project workshops.

The PACES-MEd course introduces students to research skills and specialist knowledge. Its main aims are as follows:

  • examine the theoretical frameworks used in the study of education and its constituent disciplines;
  • provide training in research methods appropriate to education;
  • advance students’ capacity for professional reflection and judgment; and
  • cater for a range of specialists interested within the field of education or one of its constituent disciplines.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of literature and concepts relating to mathematics education research and practice;
  • show abilities in the critical analysis of mathematics education issues and practices;
  • apply knowledge and understanding of educational research to plan and implement enquiry into an issue related to the course; and
  • communicate the outcomes of their study and research through extended writing conforming to stipulated academic expectations and conventions.
