M.Ed. Curriculum and Learning Design( CLD): EDUCMI01-Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment

COURSE DESCRIPTION

In this course, students will reflect in-depth on their current teaching practices, especially in terms of how effective they consider different aspects of their current practices are for promoting high quality learning among their students, and how their practices are influenced by prevailing curriculum and assessment guidelines and frameworks. They will reflect on what can be meant by high quality teaching and high-quality learning.  Throughout the course, students’ reflections on teaching, learning, curriculum and assessment practices will be informed and deepened by insights and findings from national and international research literature.

Students will engage critically with the following pedagogic innovations: metacognition, assessment for learning, dialogic teaching and pupil consultation. They will be encouraged to incorporate within their practice one or more of the listed innovations. They will consider the implications of these innovations for teaching, learning, assessment and curriculum development in their own professional contexts of practice.  In these ways the course provides a practical focus for examining and understanding interrelationships among curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment.
