The Master of Education and Learning (MEdLn) is designed to meet the professional development needs of teachers in the early childhood, primary, and secondary sectors, and to help teachers further develop their critical knowledge and understanding of issues related to teaching and learning in Aotearoa New Zealand, including their own teaching practices. The MEdLn (180 points) may be completed in eighteen months (two semesters of full-time study followed by completion of the Research Project or Professional Inquiry focusing on the area of endorsement), but will normally be completed in three years of part-time study (to be completed within eight years of admission) enabling teachers to continue teaching while they study. Distance learning option is also available. Students can choose the amount of research they include, focusing either on classroom-based research or research in education more broadly. Endorsement options: Curriculum; Digital Technologies; Early Childhood Education; Leadership; Studies in Teacher Education.
