The Melbourne Graduate School of Education is the leading research-intensive school of education in Australia. As part of the recently introduced Melbourne Model – consisting of six broad undergraduate programs followed by professional graduate degrees – the Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE) introduced MTeach in 2008.
There are two significant reforms in the new MTeach programs. The first is the introduction of clinical teaching models. The second reform relates to a substantially revised University curriculum, designed to deliver enhanced graduate attributes.
The program embraces the role of technology and recognises the importance of technology as a tool in education today. Research staff and graduate students will greatly benefit from the Ideas Lab facilities and learning and teaching technologies that will be available to keep Melbourne as a leading educational technology base. The collaboration with Ideas Lab provides an exciting opportunity to enhance the role of technology in learning.
