Murdoch Education

The School of Education is a foundation school of Murdoch University, which has proud traditions of engagement with schools and service to the teaching profession. We are committed to social justice and inclusivity, building partnerships locally and globally, and graduating effective practitioners and life-long learners.

Murdoch Education is currently leading Australia in a range of pioneering innovations including: a mixed reality classroom simulation program called SimLab to better prepare students for their practical placements in schools; an online program for developing teacher resilience called BRiTE that is now embedded in national and international initial teacher education programs; and the only university in Australia (and among only a few in the world) to offer the Tribes(TM) TLC Basic Course Certification as an accredited unit.

We provide high quality courses in pre-service teacher education at Early Childhood, Primary, Secondary and Tertiary and Adult Education levels. For our Bachelor of Education and Master of Teaching programs, we offer a wide range of nationally recognised internship programs that provide for a full year immersion experience in schools.

Our staff work with student teachers and experienced educators to foster innovation, creativity and leadership in education. Our staff also conduct world-class research through several recent Commonwealth supported large projects. Research interests of staff have been listed on the staff page so that prospective higher degree research students can align themselves with existing projects and staff expertise.

We also offer an expanding suite of postgraduate programs, including the  Master of Teaching (1.75 year duration), as well as short courses for professional development. Our Master of Education (Coursework) is recognised by the International Baccalaureate Organisation, and is offered at both Perth and Dubai Murdoch locations.

SimLabTM at Murdoch University: The Virtual Classroom

SimLab_Emma.jpg

Murdoch is proud to be the first university in Australia to offer SimLabTM technology, an immersive platform that gives students and pre-service educators the opportunity to experience, practice and improve their teaching techniques in a safe learning environment.

Professional real-life actors work behind the scenes to represent classroom pupils with differing learning capabilities that respond in real-time, representing a realistic classroom scenario. SimLab actors specialise in improvisation and are trained to simulate powerful behavioural and emotional responses from classroom pupils. Through this technology, educators will improve their teaching, relationship management and behaviour management skills, all of which are essential for effective day-to-day job performance.
