How you will be taught

The programme will be delivered by blended learning. You will attend face-to-face sessions on campus twice per year (January and June), for six days on each occasion. For the remainder of the time, you will engage in online teaching and learning, and self-directed study.

There will be emphasis on active learning, using participatory approaches, such as interactive workshops, seminars, group work, one-to-one supervision (in the thesis stage) and web conferences.

The programme has been designed to enhance your professional development and enable you to progress as ‘researching professionals’ within your own setting. To achieve this, we deploy teaching and learning activities that include group work to tackle issues in interdisciplinary ways, using this as a vehicle for deeper learning and understanding.

Each module assessment includes subject-specific components to evaluate your knowledge and understanding of the module topics. This is achieved through:

  • Written coursework
  • Continuous assessment
  • Blog entries
  • Oral presentations
  • Peer / self-review
