The Master of Professional Education and Training is an off-campus coursework program offered to professional educators and trainers working or intending to work in learning and development, education and training, and human resource development roles. Typically people are engaged in business, government, the training sector, flexible delivery, distance education, higher education, VET in Schools, TAFE teaching or in an area that combines these.
Professional education and training is a highly sophisticated business and becoming more so. As well as serving a very diverse clientele of learners, professional education and training also serves organisational needs for the development of increasingly complex skills and competencies. The MPET has been developed to meet the professional development and career aspirations of educators and trainers working in this context.
For the award of the MPET degree, students are required to satisfactorily complete 8 credit points of study. The course is available through part-time off-campus study and is normally completed in two or more years. The MPET may be undertaken entirely by coursework, or as a combination of coursework and research.
It is expected that students will have computer and internet access. The MPET is delivered flexibly through a distance education process that brings the Faculty to the student, using high quality learning materials and resources, wherever the students may be. Students study in their place and at times that suit them. Associated with this course flexibility is the negotiation of focus within units through well established and quality affirming processes that enable all students to customise their study to address their own professional interests and workplace issues.
To be awarded a Master of Professional Education and Training, students are required to successfully complete 8 credit points of study under one of the following configurations:
General coursework only
General coursework with research paper
|EXR781||Education Research Methodology * and|
|EXR791||Designing and Developing a Research Project and|
* Where students have an equivalent research study and/or experience this unit may be replaced with another 1-credit-point unit in consultation with the MPET course director.
** Research Paper Part A and Part B may be available to complete within the same trimester, but only after consultation with the course director.
*** EXR796 and EXR797 are also offered in trimester 3 subject to availability of appropriate supervisors and in consultation with the course director.
The course is highly flexible, allowing participants to choose units across the range on offer to build the skills and knowledge individual students feel they need.
