The Master in Teaching is part of the Teach & Learn in Spain Master Program and it is aimed at students who have not received specific training in the field of education but who want to get the skills required to become a truly outstanding teaching practitioner.
This Master provides a training framework that integrates teaching and learning perspectives that look beyond academic performance towards understanding the whole needs of a learner. These perspectives include: teaching methods, curricular design, classroom management, learning theories, design of classroom resources and assessment and evaluation.
It is structured into three distinct areas that include; academic courses, a life experience portfolio and the submission of a Master’s Thesis. It lasts an academic year (9 months), from September to June and is worth 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits. It combines onsite classes (Fridays) with online sessions (during the week).
This Master is accredited by the Universidad de Alcalá, public university recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Education.
