Education and Professional Studies (School Direct) (EDUM032)

30 credits

This module will introduce you to educational theories, policies and frameworks relevant to teaching in the phase/subject that you have chosen for your School Direct programme. In addition, you will learn how to conduct a small-scale, classroom-based, educational research study. Resources for the module, including recorded lectures, will be available online using the University of Exeter’s virtual learning environment, ELE.  Directed tasks will enable you to relate your developing professional practice in school to scholarly literature and theoretical frameworks to deepen your understanding of a range of topics in education including research methodology. The content of the module is strongly inter-dependent with the Subject and Curriculum Studies module in the PGCE School Direct programme.
