Looking globally: the future of education

Studying this course alongside the EE830 masters module

Students who intend to study the 60-credit masters module EE830 Learning and teaching: educating the next generation will be expected to study this badged course to feed into their first assessment.

EE830 Learning and teaching: educating the next generation is the first part of the Learning and Teaching MA/MEd pathway, which also includes a 60-credit taught module (EE831) and a 60-credit dissertation module (EE832). It will run with an October start each year from October 2018.

Students registered for the EE830 masters module will receive tutorial support and access to a range of resources and tools. This will include support for developing critical engagement with ideas and information, reflecting on learning (including its professional application) and the collaborative co-creation of knowledge between participants on the course. This will allow students to take the discussions about the possible purposes of education from this course and extend and apply them towards articulating a personal vision for education.

The badge that is awarded for successful participation in this free online course is accepted as part of the first assessment on the masters module – even if this was completed prior to starting the masters course. In that case we encourage students registered with the module to re-engage with the activities in this course nearer the time, so they can refamiliarise themselves with the ideas here and benefit from participating in discussions with a new group of peers.
