General Discussion / Masters courses
« on: July 02, 2009, 08:15:22 AM »
I am currently looking at starting a Masters and wonder if anyone has any advice or experience?  I am certain that I want to start one and certain that I want it to be classroom/subject orientated, but not sure of the exact course that would suit me.
At the recent Institute of Education Open Evening I looked at the MA Geography in Education, Masters of Teaching and the MA Effective Learning all of which look like they would fulfil my needs, be challenging yet manageable. The new Masters degree in Teaching and Learning (MTL) sounds exciting but is not open to me.

Any advice or knowledge of these or other similar courses would be really helpful

Please could I have an invite? Thanks

I have been having a starter each where I show them images on IWB of various features of CNP as mentioned in the booklet and ask them to describe these using language from the booklet (corries, heather, footpath erosion). I am finding that the students I teach (100% Bengali living in Tower Hamlets) are really struggling to access some of the terminolgy and build up that sense of place they need to succeed in this exam.

Thanks Edge. It is also my first year of teaching OCR either full or short - can anyone else (an old timer of both full and short) verify if they always use the same map for full and short course?

Can anyone help me with a question about the full and short course GCSE for OCR A (the 'current syllabus' - last exam 2010), as I am teaching it for the first time this year.

Are the OS MAP and other resources for the full course papers 3 and 4 always the same as the ones they use for the short course paper?

Gets great reviews!

Although the Observer today suggests that it is better than ''a thousand dull geography lessons''
