This is a distance learning course for those who hold the University of Sheffield's Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) with 120 valid credits. The programme will build on your PGDE learning, helping you to gain all the skills necessary to conduct a masters-level dissertation study in your own professional context.
We teach this course through a series of Saturday study schools. You'll also have one-to-one support for your dissertation from a personal tutor.
During the study schools you'll explore practitioner research methodologies, develop your project, and share and debate ideas in a supportive environment.
The study schools are complemented by online materials on research methods and methodologies. You can access expertise and support via email, Skype, phone calls or visits.
