    COURSE INFORMATION
    This course is designed for teachers who wish to extend and renew their study of education on a wide front. It offers an opportunity to further their knowledge of a variety of topics in which they have a special interest and to broaden their expertise by selecting topics which they may not have previously studied in depth.

    Educational Studies is the only non-specialised course on the MEd/ MSc programme. Its aim is to offer a wide choice of modules, some of which are stage or subject-specific and others which examine more general topics and issues in education.

    This course provides an opportunity for reflection on both the practical and theoretical aspects of education and is open to teachers in primary, secondary and third level institutions as well as to professionals in other fields of education.

    The award requires the accumulation of 120 M points from modules which may be selected from the following list:

    Psychology of Music and Education                       

    Assessment Issues in Teaching and                      

    Learning in Classrooms                                                      

    Education, the Law and Children’s Rights             

    Exploring Approaches to Literacy                            

    Creativity in Practice for Educators                        

    Education of the Gifted and Talented                       

    Education in Northern Ireland                                    

    The International Human Right to Education            

    The Reflective Practitioner                                        

    Moving Image: Creative Practice                            

    Pedagogy of the Moving Image                              

    Modules can also be chosen from the wide menu of modules on offer under the whole MSc/MEd programme.

    The MSc/MEd are awarded to those students who have accumulated 180 M Points (including a dissertation equivalent to 60 M points).

    On completion of the modules in this option students will be able to

        * demonstrate a broad-based knowledge and understanding of educational research, policy, practice and theory covered by the modules of their choice.

        * analyse and critically apply examples of the research literature in the chosen modules (and where appropriate, skills)

        * reflect critically on their own personal practice
