Higher Education

The course is designed to help you explore conceptual underpinnings of educational practice and pedagogy. The core modules provide you support in understanding research practice in Higher Education and the option modules offer opportunities to focus on specific interests. You will bring this together through you own scholarly practitioner research in the form of a 60-credit dissertation.
