Delivered fully online, it allows you to fit study around your other commitments.
This MSc/ PgDip/e-PgCert Professional and Higher Education at the Queen Margaret University is dynamic, interactive and work-related. It has been designed in response to the continuing professional development needs of professionals with an educational role, for example nurses and midwives, allied health professionals, social workers, doctors, lecturers in any discipline and professional services staff.
The course will develop your understanding and skills of: facilitation of learning, assessment and feedback, curriculum design and quality assurance and using technology to enhance learning. You will learn about theories of education that support learning and be able to reflect on and apply your learning to your own workplace practices.
By the end of the course you will be able to design, assess and facilitate learning in a broad range of professional contexts. Through reflection on practice you will continue to develop as an individual and a professional, in the sound knowledge that your practice is based on solid conceptual principles.
Graduates from this course have gone on to develop their educational practice within their current role, to teach in higher education, to work in practice development, and continuing professional development. International students have returned to their home countries to develop education programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Many graduates have gained promoted posts or gained additional responsibilities as a result of undertaking the course. Some continue further studies through doctoral research (see our PhD and Professional Doctorate programmes).
