School of Education welcomes new Master of Teaching Students
Today we welcomed over thirty new Master of Teaching students at the School of Education.
The Program Director for the Master of Teaching degree, Dr Steven Stolz, welcomed our new students to the Napier Building while some other students attended online.
This was followed by an introduction from the acting Head of School Professor Edward Palmer who reassured all students that they had made an excellent choice by coming to the University of Adelaide's School of Education.
Key lecturers from the School of Education shared some background on their research interests and personal journeys in the area of education.
Dr Brendan Bentleytalked the students through the placement and professional experience program – a highlight for many students.
Dr Walter Barbieri talked about the Teaching Performance Assessment (TPA) and the e-Portfolio which is highly valued by future employers. Dr Barbieri then took students on an exciting journey through the eLearning program.
Students then stretched their legs on a campus tour guided by current student Grace Langley, and the day concluded with a casual lunch in the lobby of the Nexus 10 building.
We look forward to seeing this new group of Master of Teaching students develop and thrive at the School of Education, preparing them for the most rewarding profession in the world.
