New degrees designed to help education practitioners impact individual learners of all ages
London - 5 May, 2014 - The University of Roehampton's School of Education has a long-established international reputation for high-quality teaching and research. To further the vision of the school and develop outstanding education professionals around the world, the University is launching four fully online practitioner-focused Master of Arts degrees within the education discipline. The new online education programmes follow the professional practitioner approach, providing students with the knowledge, skills and ability to apply research-led solutions to the current educational challenges faced in today's classrooms and learning settings.
"These new online programmes help prepare professionals to enhance educational opportunities by improving learning experiences, both in policy and in practice, that impact upon individual learners," said Dr Jon Spence, deputy director of the School of Education. "Students can develop skills and knowledge to enhance their professional practice to stay ahead in a dynamic and evolving profession, whether they teach in a school, university or even a corporate training setting."
Designed to fit into the learner-centred approach of Roehampton's School of Education, the four online programmes focus on understanding the individual learner and providing education solutions, so each individual can reach his or her full potential. The programmes are:
The four new programmes join a growing portfolio of online masters degrees including a Master of Business Administration (MBA), MSc in Project Management, MSc in Information Systems Management, MSc in Strategic Human Resource Management, MSc in Strategic Supply Chain Management and Master of Public Health (MPH).
Roehampton Online also recognises relevant work experience in place of a higher degree, such as a bachelors degree, as an alternative route to admission. Through these programmes, adult learners around the world can gain the critical thinking skills and practical knowledge they need to expand their expertise and potentially advance their careers. In a collaborative online environment that fosters learning, students engage with a diverse global community through blogs, message boards and chat groups.
