Course Description

This part time postgraduate programme is designed for full and part-time teachers and those who support learning in Higher Education in the performing arts disciplines of theatre, drama, dance, music, lighting, scenography and the digital arts. The programme is work based. Students utilise their own specific teaching practice to reflect upon learning and teaching issues in Higher Education so it is essential in order to undertake the course that you are actually teaching or supporting students at this level.

Six Study Days are scheduled throughout the year commencing with Induction in October. These face-to-face Study Days will be augmented by regular online interaction and self-directed study within your own work situations. Work- based teaching and research opportunities may be used as evidence for demonstrating the fulfilment of the programme learning outcomes.

This course accepts applications from learners who wish to take the programme by distance learning.
