Master of Education Practice

Do you work as a trainer or educator in a formal or informal setting? Whether you are a professional educator in a museum or gallery, or a registered teacher, this programme enables you to explore education through the lens of your experience.

The Master of Education Practice links theory to practice across the diverse field of education. Its strengths lie in its ability to respond to the policy and socio-political impacts on education in New Zealand, its focus on cultural diversity and the ongoing critical inquiry into practice.
