The module comprises an overview of the various schools of thought pertinent to the field of education. It includes an analysis of the assumptions, aims, and practices of major philosophies that influenced education followed by a survey of 20th century (and beyond) movements in educational theorizing. These philosophies are compared, contrasted and evaluated against various approaches to the theory and practice of education. Learners will work out a personal approach to the theory and practice of education in light of comprehensive understanding and in-depth reflection of their own personal beliefs, teaching styles and perspectives.
The learner completing this module will:
Increase in self-awareness or self-understanding by articulating a personal yet comprehensive perspective that
will guide individual educational theorizing and practice and by uncovering with empathy and respect for others
the root perspective of various philosophies and theories of education.
Identify philosophical concepts such as metaphysics, epistemology and axiology as analytical/evaluative tools for educational theorizing and practice, to uncover personal philosophical assumptions and to develop a critique of those assumptions based on a personal perspective.
Construct a philosophical framework that will help to recognize and understand the various conflicting ideas surrounding various educational practices and theories as well as the overall goals of education.
Understand more fully the principles of teaching and learning by tracing the historical, philosophical roots of important contemporary theories and practices of teaching and learning, to recognize the complexities of the issues, and to make informed choices of the most appropriate methodologies to facilitate teaching and learning.
Reflect in writing, speaking, and experiences, the meaning and significance of serving others in the context of
the discipline of education.
The objective of this module is to facilitate the learner in becoming a reflective practitioner. Furthermore:
1. To introduce students to the broad philosophical ideas of education in classical times and to review the reception of these ideas for today’s classroom, such as idealism, realism, neo-scholasticism, perennialism, essentialism, futurism, re-constructionism, existentialism, humanism, pragmatism, progressivism, and behaviourism.
2. To help students to understand how education has evolved and developed over the years beginning from the 19th century industrial revolution era up until today’s scientific and information technological era.

A comprehensive look at best practice in both leadership and people management. The fundamental start point is that Leadership is different from Management and, although almost all agree to this, research continues to show that businesses and organisations are struggling to identify and use these differences effectively. Business results are suffering as a result. Taken from the European University's MBA programme, this online offering is provided in 30 sections and involves approximately 25 hours of learning. Designed over a six month period in 2019 it brings together much that we have learned on impactive leadership as opposed to effective management!!

This course is designed to develop skills in designing, conducting and evaluating action research in the context of management practice. Research can be one of the most interesting features of any degree course as it offers you a measure of control and autonomy over what you learn. It gives you an opportunity to confirm, clarify, pursue – or even discover –new aspects of a subject or topic you are interested in.
