MEd in Higher Education

Master of Education in Higher Education (MEd - HE)

 

The Master of Education in Higher Education facilitates the professional development of teachers/lecturers as reflective practitioners in higher education. The programme achieves this by developing their knowledge of higher education as a field of study and enabling lecturers to enhance their ability to facilitate, manage and assess students’ learning.

Career opportunities include:

  • Teacher/lecturer
  • Educational Technologist
  • Quality Assurance Officer
  • Researcher in Higher Education
  • Curriculum Developer
  • Higher Education Administrator
  • Counselor in Higher Education

Programme details: The programme consists of 9 core (required) modules. Some modules may have prerequisites (i.e. may require the student to pass another module or set of modules first). Some modules may be co-requisite (i.e. such modules are required to be taken together). The number at the end of the module in parenthesis indicates the credit load of the module. 1 credit is equal to 10 hours of learning (guided, in-class and independent combined); therefore a 10-credit module requires on average 100 hours of learning from the student.
