Course Description

What constitutes good education and how can it be delivered most effectively? This flexible course, taught by tutors possessing extensive experience in educational settings, explores how education defines and contributes to the world around us. In understanding that education is much more than simply teaching and learning, you will begin to question many of the assumptions that lie beneath both policy and practice.
