Promoting Social Justice through Education

EDS852

Aims

How does education promote or inhibit social justice?

In this module we draw upon a variety of approaches to social justice, engaging with theories and issues that help us to develop critical understanding around this fundamental question.

Your own professional environment, those of your cohort peers, and other education settings will be used to gather evidence and provide a contextual perspective to the learning.

For those of you with a professional role centred on the promotion of social justice in education, this module provides an opportunity to apply newly acquired insight to the development and improvement of your own current practice.

This module will also see you progress as an autonomous researcher, and assessment is via a 7,000-word paper suitable for publication in an academic journal.

On a practical level, you’ll enhance your knowledge of current work in the field while developing your own research capabilities.
