Course Overview: The introduction of this course will position the University to be among the first, if not the first, university in the world to provide academic qualifications leading to the IB Level 2 (Associate) Teacher Award. This will enable the Faculty to benchmark a specific course in teacher education with other international leading universities as well as giving us an internationally accredited higher degree education program. With the development of a master level program there will be opportunities to build an even stronger link between professional development of teachers and research and other institutions and researchers nationally and internationally.
Objectives: Students completing this course should be able to:
  • demonstrate a superior knowledge and understanding of educational theory in the field of international education; have an understanding of the theory and practice of educational research needed to evaluate research literature and carry out appropriate inquiry/research activity;
  • make effective use of the findings of educational writings and research in formulating solutions to issues or challenges in the area of international education;
  • demonstrate depth of knowledge and understanding that will enable them to be a resource for colleagues regarding issues in international education in particular professional situations;
  • demonstrate an appreciation of professional responsibilities and ethical principles in relation to the promotion of learning and teaching which should characterise leaders in the education profession.
