For September 2017 entry: In order to take advantage of new approaches to learning and teaching, as well as developments in industry to benefit our students we regularly review all of our courses.
This course is currently going through this process and we will update this page in February 2017 to give you full information about what we will be offering once the review process has concluded.
This innovative course is designed for teachers of creative and media subjects, at all levels in schools, further education and higher education. It is also suitable for those in relevant educational support and development roles who want to develop their knowledge and skills in one or more creative media disciplines. MA Creative & Media Education aims to provide you with knowledge and skills relating both to current debates and practices in the creative industries, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
The course consists of regular individual tutorials, both face-to-face and online, as well as one intensive, two-day residential each term. The residentials typically feature master classes with leading figures from media education, together with skills workshops, enabling you to produce a range of learning resources for the classroom, and to develop your skills in areas such as interactive media (Flash, Dreamweaver), design (Photoshop, InDesign) and broadcast production (camera, editing).
You will join a community of creative researchers, sharing good practice and working collaboratively to address common issues around media education. The time you spend at work therefore contributes to the requirements of the course and what you learn immediately feeds into your teaching practice.
