The module will promote a questioning and analytical approach to the issues that affect small-group coaching, learning and assessment. In particular, participants will consider the roles and responsibilities of being an ensemble coach; eg providing inspiration, providing musical direction, setting the curriculum, creating performance opportunities, dealing with interpersonal problems, providing feedback.
The module aims to raise awareness of the wider benefits of alternatives to the master-apprentice model, eg autonomous learning, deep learning and intrinsic motivation on the part of the students, professional satisfaction and development on the part of the teacher, fostering creative communities of practice at the institutional level.
The module is taught through a 2-day workshop.
This may be taken as a stand-alone short course or as part of one of the Institute of Education's masters programmes, such as MA Teaching and Learning in Higher and Professional Education, and MA Music Education.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
A good first degree or equivalent. You should currently be employed in an appropriate educational or professional institution or similar setting, since the programme requires practical work within a teaching or training context, and elements of the assessment framework are also strongly related to your employment context.
