Drawing on the wealth of research and experience of academics in the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues and internationally regarded academics attached to the Centre, this programme will enable you to develop your knowledge and expertise in the field of character education.
The aims of the programme are: To engage teachers and others working with children and young people in a challenging course where they can access the latest research on character education and subsume it into their own practice. To enhance cross cultural knowledge, understanding and learning about the theory and practice of character education which will benefit both individuals and societies. To enable student to student and student to teacher debate, dialogue and critical analysis of the link between character virtues and individual and societal flourishing.
The programme will provide you with a broad multidisciplinary knowledge and understanding of how key theories in psychology, philosophy and education inform planning, administration, policy and professional practice. Through modules including various forms of assessment, and dedicated personal tutorial support, you will learn to critically evaluate education research from theoretical and methodological perspectives in order to contribute to character education and will gain fundamental skills in data analysis and critical thinking, which can be applied to your own professional contexts.
