Course summary

The course enables students to complete a Masters Dissertation and to link this study to the way evidence-based practice has been integrated into Education. The course consists of a number of modules including one which centres on the legitimacy of an evidence-based practice approach. In addition to this students will complete a literature review, which informs a research project to explore an educational issue with a view to improving the candidate’s own professional practice or that of others. The study culminates in a dissertation involving a candidate’s own project in their school or research in a wider field of education. The focus of this dissertation will examine the research linked to an area of the student’s own interest. What is the point of doing an MA when I have a PGCE or am an experienced teacher? Professionals do not stop learning at any stage in their working lives. Doctors and lawyers, for example, have to have regular refresher courses. In the same way, teachers need a framework like an MA within which to learn about recent research in education and be prompted to consider whether they could be even better at what they do. Not only will you learn about recent research in education, but you will also learn how to do research yourself. Having taken the trouble to gain this qualification will show your employer and future employers that you are a serious, professional employee. You will find the course intellectually stimulating.
