At Leeds Trinity we aim to provide an excellent student experience and a personal approach to helping students achieve their academic and professional potential. We have a strong tradition of supporting student employability, with relevant skills embedded in the curriculum.
The key themes of our strategy are student confidence, professionalism and social responsibility. To help students achieve their potential we emphasise learning as a collaborative process, with a range of student-led and directed activities. This approach ensures that students fully engage in shaping their own learning, developing their critical thinking and reflective skills so that they can identify their own strengths and weaknesses, and use the extensive learning support system we offer to shape their own development. Our full Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy can be accessed here.
Each module on the MA in Education uses a variety of teaching methods, including seminars, collaborative group work, action learning, presentations, lectures and structured reading and discussion. We place a high value on the learning that comes from the sharing and discussion of ideas across subject areas and phases.
Assessment is through graded coursework assignments. There are no examinations.
Assignments are designed to enable you to critically reflect on practice. The nature of the reflective practice assignments vary by module, but are designed to include written papers, small scale enquiries, presentations, portfolios or design of learning materials. All assignments include an element of critical reflection.
