This capstone experience for the Master of Education (Special Education, Inclusion & Early Intervention) (Stream A) involves completion of 45 days of professional activities, including 30 days of supervised school-based special education experiences.
The internship is designed to provide students a practical opportunity to integrate contemporary knowledge about educating children and students with diverse learning needs, assess children/students and interpret educational data in order to design an educational intervention, and to engage stakeholders in the intervention process.
The placement is supplemented by classes designed to outline the professional responsibilities and ethical principles associated with educational intervention and to support the students in leading educational change during the internship placement. The placement will draw on specific discipline skills associated with the enrolment in the Master of Education (Special Education, Inclusion & Early Intervention).
Students can assist in identifying two suitable work placements, but the Melbourne Graduate School of Education Professional Placement Office will be responsible for securing these placements. More information is available in the Placement Handbook. Placements must be approved by the Subject Coordinator. If you have problems finding a placement you should approach the Subject Coordinator.
On completion of the subject, students will have completed and reported on an educational intervention undertaken in two educational settings.
On completion of this subject students should be able to:
30 days of satisfactory work placement, 25%
Attendance at all classes (tutorial/seminars/practical classes/lectures/labs/online classes) is obligatory. Failure to attend 80% of classes will normally result in failure in the subject.
