From 2015, the School of Education is offering two new Master of Education programs. The 18 month Master of Education and a two-year Master of Education (TESOL). The Master of Education is designed for educators who want to develop their knowledge and capabilities across any of the following areas: Assessment and Evaluation, Educational Leadership, Inclusive Education, Student Wellbeing, Digital Technologies, Literacy Education, and Numeracy Education. The Master of Education (TESOL) aims to deepen specialised knowledge in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
We are also home to the Centre for Research in Education (CREd), which is committed to environmental and social sustainability, social justice, cultural difference, and innovation. Our six CREd research groups each have their own key strengths and emerging themes and address diverse key questions facing education, from cyber-bullying to teaching English to new arrivals. Our researchers have vast experience in undertaking large-scale, collaborative research projects funded variously by the Australian Research Council, Cooperative Research Centres, the Department for Education and Child Development and other government and industry partners.
School of Education staff are renowned for developing innovative and cutting edge teaching, learning and research. As teachers, researchers and providers of teacher professional development, the excellence of our staff results in strong links with the education industry and universities around the world. Our strong partnerships support our student’s professional experience combining both theory and practice.
