Master’s Dissertation

To complete the degree programme, in-service teachers are required to prepare a research project with didactic proposals for implementation in the classroom.

The Master’s Dissertation (hereafter MD) will consist of experimental work related to what is usually called “action research”, which involves collecting and interpreting data, as well as using research techniques to study a particular aspect of teaching that is of interest. Exceptionally, the MD may focus on more theoretical issues, such as analysis of teaching materials, study of methodological approaches or other theoretical aspects of the teaching-learning process.
