Professional learning programs
A range of professional learning programs, including short courses and professional development programs, are managed by the Engagement unit. Such programs can be customised specifically to suit the particular needs of clients.
The Faculty of Education is highly experienced in designing and delivering many kinds of Professional Learning programs for diverse groups of clients, including teachers and subject discipline leaders (for example: literacy, mathematics, science, and so forth), higher education managers and senior executives, as well as educational administrators and policy makers. We have vast experience working with government bodies and educational organisations including schools, colleges and universities across Australia and internationally.
The Faculty of Education is an experienced provider of customised Professional Learning programs. Existing programs can be tailored or new programs designed to meet the needs of clients.
We will provide professional learning to enable school staff to implement GRIN - a research-based, ‘out of classroom’ mathematics intervention program. GRIN is suitable for use at both primary and secondary levels for the purposes of providing support for students experiencing difficulty in maths, and improving student numeracy learning.
This research-based intervention program has been shown to improve children’s knowledge and confidence with mathematics.
This evidence-based project is aimed at building the capacity of educational leaders, school support staff and teachers to promote young people’s wellbeing and support their mental health concerns, across early childhood settings and primary, secondary and specialist schools. This collaborative project, between the Department of Education and Early Childhood Services (DEECD) and Monash University, is based on Broffenbrenner’s (1979) ecological theory, which acknowledges and targets students, school staff, school leaders, agencies and communities, across various risk and protective factors. Espoused in this model are evidence based mental health approaches to teaching and learning practices, school policy, environmental factors and school-community collaborations.
Pathways and articulation
The Engagement unit works with colleges, technical institutes and other educational institutions in Australia and internationally to determine articulation arrangements and pathways into degree programs offered by the Faculty of Education.
Since 1999, the Faculty of Education has been under contract to the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development Victoria (DEECD) to undertake external reviews of Victorian Primary and Secondary Government schools. DEECD is committed to continuous improvement in the quality of education provided in schools and to ensuring high levels of student achievement.
