Areas likely to be explored include: - Understanding issues within your own practice in the context of academic literature, and higher education policy - Doing research within education - Carrying out a small-scale research project - Finding synergies between your research and your practices supporting learning - Supporting your development as a reflective learner, to act as a basis for continuing professional development after the end of the MEd programme.
