"I'm an early years specialist with a specific interest in special educational needs. Before lecturing, I managed one of the first inclusive early years settings in the county. I received two ‘outstanding’ Ofsted ratings. I developed a unique teaching approach, underpinned by Reggio Emilia creative techniques. My main research interests include non-verbal storytelling, developing children's musicality and comparative studies with a strong interest in the differences between Sweden and the UK."

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
