Learn to Engage
We are all individuals, and the best learning happens when educators use a range of pedagogical strategies to challenge students. Prepare yourself to foster student engagement through courses that help you understand the individual needs of learners and reflect on your own well-being at the same time.
Learn to Leverage Technology
Help your students develop a successful foundation for future learning through the mastery of modern technology. As you learn about coding and robotics and the principles of play-learning, you'll learn how to design student experiences that give your students authentic opportunities to use technology to create solutions. With the knowledge and practice they gain from you, they will be equipped to make the most of educational technology throughout their student careers.
Learn About Diverse Education Needs
Take advantage of JCU's unique relationship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to broaden your knowledge of diverse education needs across the country: and the world. At JCU, our online education degrees give you the opportunity to practice designing and implementing curriculum for students from diverse cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Take part in developing pedagogical approaches that encourage achievement in even the most marginalised students, so you can make a difference in the lives of students and their families no matter where you choose to work.
Learn How to Improve Student Learning
One of the most rewarding aspects of education is the ability to help students as individuals. While the principles of education are universal, application at the individual level requires insight and experience. Through your courses at JCU, you'll learn how to improve student learning using data and evidence. Be ready for the jobs of the future with your ability to collect, record, and analyse data. Learn how to interpret and apply assessment standards in the classroom context so your students learn everything they need to know for their own futures.
Learn How to Effectively Communicate
As an educational professional, you need to reach your students, but you also need to effectively communicate with parents, peers, and administrators. When you study education online at James Cook University, you learn how to reflect on your understandings and justify them to a wide range of audiences. Whether you need to communicate with parents, administrators, or legislative and regulatory authorities, you will have the skills you need to communicate with a wide range of stakeholders.
