EDUCATION AND TEACHING 2015

EDUCATION AND TEACHING AT DEAKIN Deakin’s School of Education offers a comprehensive range of graduate entry and postgraduate courses encompassing school education, adult and workplace contexts and lifelong learning. Most of these courses are designed for school education (primary and secondary). However the School of Education also offers professional development programs for those involved in higher education settings, vocational education and training (VET), workplace and professional learning, community and adult education and early childhood education.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics notes that teaching is one of the largest professions in Australia. More than 200 000 teachers work in 10 000 schools teaching more than 3 000 000 students. While most teachers work in government, Catholic or independent primary and secondary schools, many others work in early childhood settings. Adult learning contexts, such as registered training organisations, universities, Adult and Community Education (ACE) organisations and workplaces also provide employment for many teachers and professional educators. TRAINING AND REGISTRATION It is important to check with each relevant state organisation regarding training and registration requirements. Teachers in all Victorian schools (government and independent) need to be registered by the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT). For more information visit the VIT website vit.vic.edu.au. Refer to the VIT specialist area guidelines for further information regarding the level of study necessary in order to teach in Victorian government schools.

Postgraduate courses offered by Deakin that meet the four‐year tertiary educational requirement stipulated by VIT include: • Master of Teaching • Master of Applied Learning and Teaching. As a Deakin student, you learn in a friendly and supportive environment. At a postgraduate level, Deakin offers courses that are suitable for graduates from other discipline areas who wish to enter the teaching profession, as well as for professional educators looking for courses that offer excellent career prospects by advancing their qualifications and knowledge, making them better teachers. In addition, Deakin offers the Graduate Certificate of Higher Education Learning and Teaching, for those seeking credentials to teach in tertiary education and courses in early childhood education, special educational needs, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), Teaching Languages Other Than English (TLOTE) and applied learning (designed to train teachers in specialist areas and prepare them to teach with an applied and vocational learning orientation). 2 ASK US A QUESTION – 1300 DEGREE (1300 334 733) – FACEBOOK.COM/DEAKINUNIVERSITY – ENQUIRE@DEAKIN.EDU.AU

EDUCATION AND TEACHING 2015

Applied learning This innovative program prepares creative teachers and educators to work with young people in secondary schools, as well other vocational and community contexts such as TAFE and Adult and Community Education (ACE) organisations. The program responds to the challenge to adequately provide people with the knowledge, skills and values for a range of further study and employment pathways. Graduates of this course are able to work as teachers across both the secondary schooling system and the Vocational Education and Training (VET) system. Educational leadership and administration The management of learning is becoming a feature of many complex organisations that see themselves as ‘learning organisations’. Courses in these areas explore what might constitute the responsibilities of those involved in managing such organisations and the learning processes within them. While schools are a focus of much of the work in this program, the basic ideas are equally applicable to other learning organisations.

Early childhood education As Australia is on the cusp of significant growth in the early childhood education sector, this course has been developed as a new teacher education program to address the potential shortage of four-year trained kindergarten and childcare centre teachers. Deakin’s course focuses on experiential learning in workplace settings and communities. This dedicated stream of study can be undertaken as part of the Master of Teaching or Bachelor of Early Childhood Education*. *  For more information about the Bachelor of Early Childhood Education, please visit deakin.edu.au/ arts-ed/education/courses/grad-entry. Education Deakin offers a number of professional development programs for qualified teachers. With several specialised areas available, we offer you an understanding of contemporary education issues and discourses; high-level critical and evaluation skills; and enable you to demonstrate the ability to undertake educational research projects. Higher education Our studies in higher education meet the requirements for credentialled tertiary teaching for academic staff.

Special educational needs The special educational needs course addresses the needs of teachers and other professionals involved in the education of students with special educational needs. The courses address the fundamental philosophy of inclusion for people with disabilities and impairments within school education systems. Teaching Deakin offers a number of programs for those who wish to become a qualified teacher. Through Deakin’s innovative course options, you’re able to gain qualifications in either early childhood, primary or secondary teaching. Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) We have several courses designed to address the wide diversity of educational backgrounds of students who are interested in teaching English. They are designed for experienced TESOL professionals wishing to develop their understanding of current practices, as well as those seeking to obtain a teaching qualification in this area.

Teaching Languages Other Than English (TLOTE) This course is designed for qualified and experienced TLOTE professionals who wish to reflect on, evaluate and critique their practice, and who wish to develop their understanding of contemporary second language teaching in order to take on leadership roles in their workplace. BENEFITS OF POSTGRADUATE STUDY • • Prepare yourself for success – postgraduate study can empower you to pursue new opportunities that were previously out of reach. • • Invest in yourself – postgraduate study is an investment; in your sense of achievement, your job satisfaction and your financial security.

EDUCATION AND TEACHING AT DEAKIN JESSICA MOONEY MASTER OF EDUCATION (SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS) CLOUD (ONLINE) ‘I chose this field because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of people who are marginalised in their learning. Deakin has a fine reputation in the preparation of teachers to work in the areas of disability. When I completed my undergraduate studies I wanted to commence my postgraduate studies immediately to prepare me for applying for a teaching job in a specialist school. I obtained the first job I applied for! My employer was most impressed with my studies at Deakin. Looking back at my experiences at uni, I think the combination of a stimulating course program together with outstanding placements in schools, was really positive. My placement in specialist schools led to my current employment position. Since graduation I have been working with young children with significant intellectual processing needs. It has been most rewarding forming friendships with these students and with their families.’ STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES Deakin University offers a complete range of services and programs to support students throughout their studies.

So after I graduate I have a commitment with my country. My mission is to teach other teachers all that I have learned at Deakin and in Australia. I am going to teach in the national university of my city, Arequipa.

My studies at Deakin have been inspiring from day one, providing so many opportunities and experiences that I will never forget. Everything I have learned from my course has given me the basis to establish a similar pattern in my own teaching practice. In addition, the various volunteer programs I have participated in have inspired me to propose to and encourage the universities of my home country to establish similar kinds of programs, allowing students to integrate and collaborate with one another as a community.

Deakin has provided so many opportunities, not only an inspiring teaching program, but also being able to interact with people from all around the world and to learn about their cultures.

STUDY OPTIONS AND HOW TO APPLY STUDY OPTIONS We provide a range of options and choices to allow your postgraduate study to suit your needs: • • If you’re studying via cloud (online) learning you really can study anywhere or any time. Our use of the cloud means you don’t have to attend a campus to have a rich, interactive, personal and empowering learning experience. • • If you do choose campus learning, our four campuses in Melbourne, Geelong (Waterfront and Waurn Ponds) and Warrnambool, give you plenty of options.

• • Life can change very quickly and what suits you one year, might not the next. That’s why many courses give you the option to switch between full-time and part-time study, as your needs shift. • • With more than 150 postgraduate courses, there’s plenty to choose from at Deakin. Many courses also give you the flexibility to tailor your studies to your interests and aspirations through your choice of elective subjects. • • We can help you fast-track your degree through our trimester system. • • Our three trimesters, which includes a third (optional) trimester, over the summer, means that, for some courses, you may be able to study year-round and complete your degree sooner.

Campus study Traditionally, campus learning involves attending classes (previously known as lectures), discussing and debating in seminars (previously known as tutorials), getting hands-on experience in practicals and studying or researching in the library. While these things are still a big part of campus study at Deakin, the student experience is evolving fast. Learning doesn’t stop when you finish a class or leave the campus. We recognise that for many students, significant learning can take place while you’re doing fieldwork, at a work placement, or volunteering. So as well as the traditional combination of classes, seminars, assignments and exams, fieldwork or practical experience can also form a large part of the content and assessment of some units.

Cloud (online) study It’s a lot easier to manage your commitments when you’re not pinned down to being in a certain place at a certain time. Cloud (online) study gives you the freedom to study when and where it suits you. Listen and watch recorded classes online from the comfort of your couch. Read your texts on your tablet or laptop while you’re on the train. Compare notes with other students online during your lunch break. We don’t set the limits, you do. For more information about cloud (online) study, please visit deakin.edu.au/study-at-deakin/ study-options-and-pathways.

HOW TO APPLY Coursework applications To apply for a postgraduate coursework degree you will usually need to have completed an undergraduate degree; however, there are other pathways. If you have considerable work or life experience, in some instances you may be able to use this to obtain admission into a graduate certificate or graduate diploma course. You may then progress to a master’s degree subject to University approval. A postgraduate qualification can advance your career or you may use it to help change direction and move to a completely new industry. Application dates Applications for enrolment in Trimester 3, 2014 and Trimester 1, 2015 open in August 2014. Applications for Trimester 2, 2015 open in April 2015.

STUDY OPTIONS AND HOW TO APPLY BEN WHITBURN DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY MELBOURNE BURWOOD CAMPUS ‘I chose this field because I was motivated to learn about inclusive education from insider perspectives – in this case secondary students with diagnosed special needs – and examine how it might be developed. Deakin was an obvious choice because of its reputation for a strong research culture in education. With the support of my supervision at Deakin I have been able to expand my understanding of many of the theoretical and political issues that surround inclusive schooling for students with impairments. I’ve been given many opportunities at Deakin, participating in several national and international conferences on education research, travelling to Spain to collect data through 2012–2013 and I have also published a body of work based on my research. Professionally, this has been particularly rewarding, receiving the Junior Scholar Award 2014 from the American Educational Research Association’s special interest group in Disability Studies in Education.

What I enjoy most about uni and my course is that Deakin has offered me a very supportive environment and I feel that I have grown as a scholar in the field of inclusive education research and disability studies as a result.’ Read more about Ben’s experience at deakin.is/ben-whitburn. WHAT IS CREDIT TRANSFER AND RECOGNITION? Credit transfer and recognition is credit granted towards your Deakin course for relevant approved study or work experience. There are two aspects to credit transfer and recognition: • • credit may be transferred to your Deakin course from completed or partially completed studies you have undertaken at other accredited institutions • • credit may be granted on the basis of knowledge and skills acquired through uncredentialled learning.
