Teaching

We use a range of teaching methods including:

  • workshops
  • lectures
  • seminars
  • tutorials
  • digital learning and self-directed study
  • practical experience in the classroom

As well as school-based professional practice placements and studies in primary curriculum areas, you will learn about the theory and practice of education including:

  • pedagogy (the science of learning and teaching), including early years
  • professional, personal and societal values
  • equity and inclusion
  • pupil well-being
  • developmental psychology
  • current issues in education
  • the teacher as a researcher
  • the history, philosophy and sociology of education
  • education and childhood in global contemporary settings

In Level 1 you will also be able to choose a module from the wider University, such as politics, English, film studies, psychology, languages, or philosophy - the range is extensive and depends on timetable availability.

In Level 4 of the course all students complete a thesis. This allows you to carry out an educational-based enquiry of your own choice.

Assessment

A range of different methods are used to assess your progress including:

  • oral assessments and presentations
  • online portfolios
  • written assignments

For your professional practice placements, your teaching in the classroom will be assessed by University staff and school partners, based on your performance throughout the placement and tutor observation.
