|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
Participants are supported in carrying out research to achieve greater understanding and to encourage innovation and the course aims to ensure that participants develop a wide range of skills. Our range of teaching and assessment methods facilitate a supportive, learning community.
|Evidence underpinning this approach||
The research skills component is delivered by academic staff with expertise in conducting qualitative and quantitative studies. The dissertation will allow you to develop expertise in an area of your choice under the supervision of an experienced member of the academic staff. Previous participants have often chosen to focus on issues which relate to school improvement, which therefore benefit not only themselves but the wider education community.
|How users/participants can evaluate success||
The award of MA Educational Practice and Research requires the successful completion of 180 MA credits. The MA aims to build on participants’ existing interests and expertise and is taught during evenings and weekends. Flexible and personalised study patterns will complement professional work commitments. At UEA, we create a stimulating and challenging environment in which to discuss and analyse classroom practice and offer a broad range of subject areas.
|Follow-up activities and support||
All participants will have a personal tutor offering academic and professional support.
