Introduction

The Master of Education is the flagship postgraduate course for the Faculty of Education. On the one hand, it is a generic course for professional educators to study contemporary theory and knowledge aligned to national and international research. On the other hand, it has the flexibility for students to align their study with their particular professional interests, encouraging authentic engagement through the generation and evaluation of relevant knowledge, skills and perspectives.

The Master of Education provides an opportunity for students from a wide range of educational contexts to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities required by educational professionals in the 21st century. It addresses the world-wide, key challenges facing education: developing teams and organisations to become professional learning communities; building quality practices; developing evidence-based programs and curriculum to improve education practices and learning outcomes; critically analysing international policy trends in education and understanding the impacts of globalisation on learning and development.

A key structural feature will be the option to articulate Faculty of Education approved short course professional development for credit for up to 50% of the course.

This course is not recognised as a teaching qualification.
