The purpose of the module is to explore theory and practice related to the teaching, learning and assessment of students with special educational needs and disabilities around the world. There are two interrelating elements to the module: firstly, you will study different theories, concepts and practices such as learning theories, pedagogy, assessment, differentiation, curriculum; secondly, you will consider different types of special educational need, for example, dyslexia, learning difficulties, autism. The activities during the module help bring these two aspects together. This module is part of the Special Educational Needs pathway of the MA Ed (online) programme and is completed entirely via distance learning.
