The Teaching and Learning programme from Waterford Institute of Technology offers students the opportunity to learn about contemporary teaching methods and education systems and gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing educators, trainers and students in different educational contexts. This scholar-practitioner approach will inform and enhance participants’ practice and their ability to create effective student-centred learning environments.
On successful completion of the MEd in Teaching and Learning, graduates may progress to doctoral studies (NFQ Level 10) at WIT or another Higher Education Institution subject to meeting the specific entry criteria.
During our MEd in Teaching and Learning at Waterford Institute of Technology students will:
- develop professional skills and competence as teachers, lecturers, trainers and education professionals whilst valuing the wealth of knowledge and experience that they, as adult learners, bring to the classroom.
- apply their learning directly to enhance their practice and can share their experience in a supportive and collaborative learning environment.
