Practitioner Enquiry

This course offers teachers, school leaders and other educators the means to engage in enquiry and research related to their own practices and contexts. Practitioner enquiry is associated with school improvement, teachers' professional development and educational innovation. There is a general pathway and a leadership pathway, the latter requires students to focus on modules and a dissertation related to educational leadership and management. Course participants come from across educational phases (early years to higher education) and between educational sectors (schools, museums, colleges and universities, and educational consultancies). This diversity helps to create a dynamic and supportive learning environment in which students learn considerably from each other as well as from the course leaders.
