About

The Education (Advanced Practice) programme from University College London (UCL) enables participants working in educational settings to reflect on their own practice, taking a professional academic approach. 

Overview

The presentation of this Education (Advanced Practice) programme from University College London (UCL) is fully online, or a combination of online and face-to-face for those who can attend. A separate MA Advanced Educational Practice school-based cohort group (minimum of 20 participants) may be available.

The route has been developed to respond to the needs of educational practitioners in both UK and international settings.  Its field of study is pedagogical practice examined through the different lenses of learning, the curriculum and action research.  Learning is presented through using the community of practice as a tool to share and enhance understanding.

Teaching and learning

Modules within this route are normally taught fully online through our virtual learning environment (VLE) Moodle.  

Attendance is measured through access to the material and activities, responses in forums and completion of tasks shared online.  All participants are assessed through coursework (which may be two or more short essays, a long essay, portfolio or presentation) at the end of each module, and receive both formative written feedback on a draft and summative feedback on a final submission.

Careers

The majority of students on this programme are already in employment, normally in educational settings.  It is expected that study on the programme will open up opportunities either for promotion within the student's current place of employment, or enable them to apply for new roles within an educational setting.

Employability

The programme, and this route in particular, is designed to empower students as education practitioners through development of transferable academic skills in practitioner research and engagement with literature.
