Enhanced Practice in Education

This programme is designed for people at different stages in their professional careers from a range of backgrounds in education and allied fields such as social work, health and policing. There is a focus on collaborative learning, drawing on your own experiences and those of your academic colleagues. Research-informed modules will help you to think about practice and policy in the light of current educational thinking and enable you to consider how to improve your own practice to become an effective practitioner. The programme will help you to develop evidence-based, theoretical approaches and practices in critical reflection and judgment that you can apply in relation to your own practice. You will be based at our Dumfries campus, set in the beautiful countryside of the South-West of Scotland.

Course modules

You will take 4 core and 2 optional courses, followed by a research project to be completed over the summer months. The research project can be in the form of a dissertation or practice based, and provides an opportunity for you to identify an area of personal interest to explore in more detail. Core modules include: Advanced research methods; leadership and management; reflective practice and action research; working in an inter-agency environment. Option modules may include: Climate change: Impacts on ecology; critical perspectives on knowledge and power; critical thinking and communication; environment, technology and society; environmental communication; environmental ethics and behavioural change; environmental politics and society; reading the environment; tourism, sustainability and climate change; writing the environment.
