Masters of Education Degree (Imaginative Education)

This MEd program is based on two aspects of the Imaginative Education Research Group’s (IERG) work. The first involves coming to understand how students’ imaginations develop during their school years.  The second aspect involves exploring ways to enable teachers routinely to engage students’ imaginations in better learning the material of the curriculum in everyday practice.  It seeks to accomplish this by:

1) Exploring some alternative and innovative ideas about education;

2) Engaging teachers in the active reworking of subject matter so as to capture learners’ imaginations;

3) Working with teachers to plan, implement and evaluate their use of these innovative ideas in practice.

The faculty members teaching in the program are all members of the IERG group.  They are committed to working with teachers in the study of their practice and in collaborating with them in bringing about more imaginative learning situations.
