The theory and practice of education is explored in the following key areas, with the aim of preparing students for their school placement, assignments, portfolio and dissertation:

Becoming a teacher; reflective practice; portfolio writing; learning theories; child-centred approaches; research methods; classroom observation; lesson planning; classroom dialogue; classroom climate; assessment; teaching relationships
