Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Master of Teaching

7 July 2016

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the University of Sydney’s first year of its groundbreaking Master of Teaching (MTeach) degree.
The MTeach is Australia’s first graduate-entry pre-service teacher education course, completed over two years.
To honour the occasion, the Faculty of Education and Social Work will hold a special Conference and Celebratory Dinner for all MTeach graduates on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016. The current cohort will also be invited.

“The MTeach was designed to foster an innovative, case-based and inquiry approach to teacher education. It aimed to address key issues at the time,” said Professor Robyn Ewing.
“Three core tenets of the degree continue reflective professional practice, collaborative inquiry, criteria-based assessment culminating in a substantive, classroom-based internship.
“The celebration is timely as the faculty undertakes an external review of the degree and considers how it can address future challenges for teachers and education.”
Designed for candidates seeking a teaching qualification, applicants already hold a bachelor’s degree in a relevant discipline.
There are specialisations in early childhood, primary education, school counselling, and 13 areas of study within secondary education, including the national priorities of Science and Mathematics.
