Master of Teaching and Learning

The Master of Teaching and Learning degree or MTL is a new postgraduate degree for teachers and others working in or studying education in the United Kingdom. It will first be delivered from September 2009 by approved providers in conjunction with the TDA.

It is often referred to as the Master of Teaching degree or MTeach in Australia. It has replaced the Bachelor of Teaching, Diploma of Teaching and the Diploma of Education as the Australian "end-on" education degree. For example, specialist teachers may choose to specialise in their area, through degrees such as the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science, and then complete their Masters degree in Teaching to complete their university education. The Australian Master of Teaching and Learning degree or MEdLea is an education administrative leadership course provided by only some universities in Australia.

Famous quotes containing the words master of, learning, master and/or teaching:

    Man was Cadaver’s masker, the harnessing mantle,
    Windily master of man was the rotten fathom,
    My ghost in his metal neptune
    Forged in man’s mineral.
    This was the god of beginning in the intricate seawhirl,
    And my images roared and rose on heaven’s hill.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    If learning to read was as easy as learning to talk, as some writers claim, many more children would learn to read on their own. The fact that they do not, despite their being surrounded by print, suggests that learning to read is not a spontaneous or simple skill.
    David Elkind (20th century)

    Persecution for opinion is the master vice of society.
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)

    History is Philosophy teaching by examples.
    Thucydides (c. 460–400 B.C.)
