Advanced Educational Practice MA has been developed to enable participants to reflect on their own practice, taking a professional academic approach. The programme’s presentation is either fully online for individual students or a combination of online and face-to-face for those joining an MA school-based cohort group (minimum of 12 participants).

This programme has been developed to respond to educational practitioner needs in both UK and International settings.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of two core modules (60 credits), two optional modules (60 credits) and a dissertation (60 credits), or three optional modules (90 credits) and a report (30 credits).

The PG Diploma is awarded for 120 credits in any available modules.

The PG Certificate is awarded for 60 credits in any available modules.

Core modules

There is only one true core module for the Advanced Educational Practice MA which is a research methodology module, usually completed before or alongside the dissertation or report thesis.  Students are encouraged to identify a theme to study compatible modules up to 60 credits which can be taken from any 'core' module listed below.

  • The Action Researcher: exploring issues and contexts (the 'core' module)
  • Teacher as Author: curriculum design and development
  • Supporting Learners and Learning
  • Developing Mentoring Practices
  • Independent Study Module
  • Assessing Colleagues' Learning
  • Developing the Role of the Tutor

Optional modules

The optional modules for the Advanced Educational Practice MA are any of the available modules within the programme (as listed below) or any UCL Institute of Education modules residing in other MA programmes.  These are only available at the discretion of the Module Leader and the Advanced Educational Practice Programme Leader.

  • Independent Study module
  • Developing the Role of the Tutor
  • Supporting Learners and Learning
  • Teacher as Author: Curriculum Design and Development
  • Assessing Colleagues' Learning
  • Developing Mentoring Practices
  • Participants may also bring 60 credits into this MA from successful completion of a PGCE (Primary, Secondary or Post-Compulsory routes).

Dissertation/report

All students undertake an independent research project which culminates either in a report of 10,000 words (30 credits) or a dissertation of 20,000 words (60 credits).

Teaching and learning

All modules are taught fully online through our virtual learning environment (VLE) Moodle. Attendance for individual participants is measured through access to the material and activities, responses in forums and completion of tasks which are shared online via Keep In Touch (KIT) forums. All participants are assessed through coursework (which may be a long essay, portfolio or presentation) at the end of each module and receive both formative written assessment on a draft and summative written assessment following final submission.

 

 

Normally a minimum of a second-class Bachelor’s degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard, or a teaching qualification (Qualified Teacher Status or equivalent) with two years’ practical experience is required. Applicants with alternative qualifications may wish to consider the Graduate Diploma route.
