Becoming An Educationalist is designed to help Education students become successful in the present day as they study - and to become active, creative, critical and emancipatory educationalists for the 21st Century. This show encapsulates the first introductory lecture that explained some over-arching successful study strategies - and that explained the TLA approach of the module.

The meta-goal of the module is to re-define study and academic skills to include 'developing the digital you', with a focus on practical digital literacies and a more critical awareness of visual literacies: all aspects of creating and inhabiting on-line spaces and places... and IBL, PBL, Project-based learning, learning through art and artistic practices, learning through discussion, reflection and meta-reflection.
