This module is aimed at those who do not wish to choose a subject specialism, but are instead interested in developing knowledge, understanding and skills in research-inspired primary teaching and learning across the whole 5-11 curriculum. The module prepares you to become a leader of curriculum innovation.                                                     

Recent research is used to support the development of a contemporary and critical view of primary education.    Practical workshops and seminars make up the taught component, with contributions from school partners. The module takes its themes from the Cambridge Primary Review Trust which examines multiple facets of primary teaching and learning from national and international perspectives.

Taught sessions will be delivered via lectures, seminars, and workshops (on and off-campus), including peer teaching as appropriate
