Programme specification:

The taught modules followed for this programme are the same as for the MA TESOL. However, in assignments as well as the Critical Study candidates are required to develop contextually appropriate educational 'applications' of the areas studied. These are likely to be detailed development plans, or specific programme, evaluation, materials or task designs.

In other words, the assignments will demonstrate informed educational planning and design skills, and the focus will be on the educational use of critically evaluated ideas and/or outcomes of original empirical research, which have been encountered or generated during the course of study.
