This programme aims to provide opportunities for educators to explore and examine aspects of their own practice with a view to improving the educational experiences of the students in their care. Central to the programme is the development of a reflective disposition which is a core principle underpinning action research. Recent Teaching Council policies such as Induction (Droichead) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) (Cosán) promote teaching as a lifelong learning continuum along with the concept of teacher as researcher. This Master’s in Education upholds the concept of teaching as innovative professional practice, combining academic study with research in practice. It is envisaged that successful candidates of the programme will go on to serve key roles in the educational community as curriculum and policy developers.

Underpinned by the philosophy of Friedrich Froebel, his contemporaries and later scholars, this programme will specifically explore Action Research in its many forms within educational settings. Through the work of Froebel (1933), Dewey (1912), Brookfield (1995) and others associated with critical reflection, this programme will provide opportunities to further develop students’ skills at a higher level in order to inspire transformative practices within educational settings.
