Course aim

To design, carry out and critically reflect on a project which combines theory and practice in education in a particular context.

Course content

Students undertake a project which may take a variety of forms. One possibility is a curriculum resource, such as a set of learning materials, a film or video, a set of tests, a curriculum guide, or a text book which reflects clear understanding of the field and is critically evaluated. Another possibility is a work-based project related to an aspect of education as it applies to students’ own educational setting. A further possibility is an investigation into policies and/or practices that apply to a particular educational setting.
