The Master of Education (International) is an innovative course encompassing international education, education policy, higher education, vocational education, literacy and language, English language teaching in Asia, educational leadership, Indigenous education and digital technologies and learning.
It is aimed at meeting the professional development needs of education policy makers, practitioners and researchers working across Australia and in the Asia-Pacific region, in areas such as (but not limited to) teacher education, higher education, community development, schooling, education for all, and technical and vocational education and training.
This course responds to the need for professional capabilities such as analytical thinking, collaborative learning, project management, and transformative practices in global and local settings. Students are involved in an active self-managed learning experience that integrates opportunities to blend theory and practice in response to current and future paid and unpaid work contexts. Students are encouraged to customise their program to meet personal, organisational workplace and community demands. Students can choose from a range of units including a selection of designated units in assessment, teaching and learning and leadership, an internship in a local or international agency or a small thesis which provides skills and capabilities for future higher degree research study.
