    Student

    Madelain Benedetti

    Master of Teaching and Learning (Secondary)

    This course has given me a wealth of teaching experience in many schools, both guided by an experienced educator and as an independent teacher. This has allowed me to develop my own ‘teacher identity’ – an integral aspect of being an educator. I have made some fantastic friendships that I know will last a lifetime.

    Jonathan Walsh

    Master of Teaching and Learning (Secondary)

    I chose the Master of Teaching and Learning because it leveraged my existing education, knowledge and skills and focused them for a meaningful career in education. The best part was applying what we’ve learnt to real-life teaching situations with access to the best teaching experts that North Queensland has to offer.

    I was considering a career change from being a scientist to a teacher and I was really attracted to JCU’s Master of Teaching and Learning program. The professional placements and internship mean I get to put my knowledge and skills into practice, which will greatly assist me in becoming a qualified educator.
