Educators at all levels play a significant role in developing the knowledge of the society. New approaches to education, emphasising knowledge building rather than transmission can contribute to preparing citizens to participate more fully in the ‘knowledge economy’ and ‘information society’.
The SEGi University College in collaboration with the University of Southern Queensland offers the Master of Education (MEd) programme that aims to develop the capabilities and dispositions required of its graduates to work as engaged professional educators in knowledge building communities.
The MEd is an intensive programme that allows educators/trainers to acquire a general theoretical background for understanding past and future experiences in the education field and implicating it in their professional work. Educators/trainers can enhance their professional competence through advanced coursework and research based projects. This programme allows students to specialise in Leadership & Management.
The Master of Education program thus aims to develop in its graduates the capabilities and dispositions to work as engaged professional educators in contemporary knowledge building communities. In particular, the student-led design coursework option allows students the maximum flexibility in tailoring the nature of the courses studied in the program to their own particular professional learning goals.
3-year Bachelor Degree (or equivalent) from a recognised university which includes at least one year of studies in education.
