Innovative Pedagogy and Curriculum

This course uses a practitioner enquiry approach. It encourages teaching professionals to take a practical and informed approach to the 'plan, do, review' cycle. The course is suitable for teachers and other educators, whether just starting out in their career or taking significant responsibilities for educational excellence and actively supporting other professionals. Students develop both case study and action research approaches. This enables them to make informed judgements about pedagogic, assessment and curriculum matters.
