The programme will be taught primarily through face-to-face teaching but will make use of some online learning activities.
Courses will employ a variety of teaching methods so as to model good practice.
Lectures will be complemented by small- and large-group discussions and debates, various forms of group work in cognate and mixed subject areas, as well as independent project work.
Assessment will take place through formal course-work submissions. All course assessments contribute to the aims of the programme and relate directly to individual course learning outcomes.
A considerable degree of choice is built into each of the assessments either by letting participants choose between two options or by allowing for substantial flexibility in how to approach the required assignment. The final assessment requirement is a "synoptic assessment" which course participants complete as part of the core option Developing My Approach to Teaching.
