Course Overview

What is a quality education? Does education only happen in schools? Can an education system ever be truly inclusive? The UNESCO sustainable development goals highlight 17 areas that promote education as a way to transform people’s lives and these show that there is a wide range of issues that relate directly to teaching and learning but that do not link directly to what happens in classrooms. The goals show that learning and teaching happen in a huge range of places - in youth clubs, on sports grounds, in museums, on the internet and they happen to everyone all the time regardless of their age, background, race etc.

This unique and innovative degree in Learning and Teaching offers a detailed insight into education at all ages and in all places and will examine both theory and practice to unpick ‘effective’ learning and teaching based on international best practice and research evidence. We will consider a diverse range of factors that influence learning including the importance of learner's voice, the diverse needs of learners of all ages and the importance of health and wellbeing for both learners and educators....
