Development of Learning: A Case Study (EDP M01) (Masters level 7)
During your time in an educational setting, prior to engagement with this module, you will identify the way in which the school/college/setting in which you are placed addresses the particular educational needs of a particular small group of individual pupils/students (or it might be one student) and which shows how learning is developed over a short period of time, or alternatively, what could be done to enhance its development in the future.
Examples to consider could be: the way in which the school/college/setting deals with those identified as having special educational needs; how the school/college deals with pupils who routinely do not engage in aspects of classroom learning or homework or with their peers; how the school supports more able and talented pupils; or how the school supports improvements in behaviour.
Please note that you will not study an individual pupil/student but the intervention, process, or aspect of teaching and learning put in place to support them.
There will be a range of material provided which will enable and empower you to approach the work which will be entirely relevant to you at this point in your training. You will be able to engage with, and critically evaluate, teaching and learning at a scale other than that of whole class planning. Support will be available throughout the time enrolled on the module from your subject tutor. This will enable you to discuss your research and proposed methodology/problems as you progress through the work.
