The Centre for Special Educational Needs, Inclusion and Diversity at St. Angela’s College, Sligo has, in recent, years developed a number of online blended-learning options at postgraduate level for all professionals interested in the areas of Special Educational Needs (SEN). There are currently ten modules to choose from:
The aim of the modules is to provide substantial theoretical and practical continuing professional development for those interested in and/or working with learners with special educational needs (Further details on the individual modules are provided at the end of this document).
These standalone online blended learning modules involve e-tivities, discussion boards and face-to-face workshops and have a credit weighting of 15 ECTS. Modules are offered regularly over the academic year.
Completion of two modules from the suite of on-line blended learning modules listed above(30 ECTS) = Postgraduate Certificate
Completion of four modules from the suite of on-line blended learning modules listed above(60 ECTS) = Postgraduate Diploma
Participants may progress to Masters level on successful completion (an honours standard) of four modules from those listed above which must include the on-line blended learning module on Educational Research Methods.
This module aims to develop knowledge, skills and understanding in relation to effective teaching of learners with ASDs and the theories that consolidate the implementation of a learner-centred philosophy which employs a combined-skills approach to meeting the needs of learners with ASDs.This module is delivered using online learning components and face-to-face workshops.
Continuous assessment will apply throughout the programme. It will combine coursework on relevant aspects of Special Educational Needs with e-tivities, discussion boards, portfolio/project-based learning, literature reviews and case studies, which will be carried out within an appropriate educational context during the academic year. The concept of the ‘reflective practitioner’ will be a basic criterion permeating all forms of assessment.
The modules attract a wide range of participants from a variety of settings, including:
