This course is designed to support both individual and organisational development; while each subject area has its own unique focus, all are concerned with investigating contemporary educational issues in the light of economic and social contexts, appropriate literature and the shared experience of course members; the overall purpose of the course is to deepen and refine capacity for critical reflection on practice as well as on the mental models which inform work; systematic inquiry is therefore an organising principle that underpins all modules on the course, and students are encouraged to identify issues that are significant to them and their organisation.
