Subject

Education studies

The BA (Hons) Education and Learning is a fascinating degree, giving you the chance to study a balanced combination of current educational policy, the history of education, and sociology, philosophy and psychology. It’s a great opportunity to explore in depth some of the key current issues affecting education in the UK and abroad. Key themes on this course include critical and reflective thinking, equality and diversity. By thinking about how we learn consciously and subconsciously, we’ll guide you in an exploration of how formal learning, alongside acquired knowledge, shapes our lives, interests and value structures. We also encourage you to research and analyse a range of educational practices, and reflect on your own and others’ experiences of education. This will help you think critically about learning and teaching, and how education is perceived and received.

Modules

Modules include • BA Research and Study Skills • Theory and Practice of Learning • Inclusive Education • English in Schools • Maths in Schools • Science in Schools • Globalisation • Educational Issues, Developments and Policies • Learners with Additional Needs • Classroom Cultures • Placement • Proposal • Philosophy of Education • Psychology of Education • The Illusion of Inclusion • Educational Leadership • Dissertation

Assessment methods

Learning and teaching on this course is supported by ‘blended learning’ – a combination of face-to-face sessions and online resources. We’ll help you develop your research skills while you mould your own approach to individual learning and independent research. You’ll also have lectures, seminars and group work to help you progress successfully. Assessment tasks are linked to each module’s intended learning outcomes, while course assignments are based on coursework – varying from academic essays to e-discussions, presentations and seminars. Assessment tasks involve research exercises, and may require you to submit reflective journals and case studies. There are also reflective activities, such as Personal Development Planning (PDP), in which using relevant theories and reflective tools will help you relate theory to practice. All the while, we’ll provide feedback on your written assignments during tutorials and following presentations – we even encourage ‘practice’ presentations in some of the modules, so you can familiarise yourself with the experience.
