The annual prize-giving for MEd, PG Diploma & Certificate students took place on 20 November, showcasing the College’s increasing teaching expertise.
Students of the programme are all part of the College teaching community. The MEd is the third of a three-stage approach to the study of teaching and learning in a university setting. It follows on from the PG Certificate and Diploma and provides academic support in producing education research and encourages participants to investigate and inform their practice.
Evolving our understanding of education
Dr Janet De Wilde, Head of Postgraduate Professional Development in the Graduate School presented her research, ‘From Islands to Mountains: The Experiences of Final Year STEMM Doctoral Students at a Thesis Writing Retreat’.
Dr De Wilde said: “Your thesis is a highly public statement of your thinking as a doctoral student. How you convey yourself has never been more important. Yet many of our students have not had any formal writing training since their early years of secondary school.”
