  • Enabling teachers to become conversant with the basic assumptions, concepts, and principles of a range of learning theories and to evaluate their usefulness in specific educational situations
  • Promoting a deeper understanding of a range of teaching strategies
  • Developing expertise in practitioner research
  • Making appropriate use of professional and research literature.
