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 learning, master and/or teaching:
“Young children learn in a different manner from that of older children and adults, yet we can teach them many things if we adapt our materials and mode of instruction to their level of ability. But we miseducate young children when we assume that their learning abilities are comparable to those of older children and that they can be taught with materials and with the same instructional procedures appropriate to school-age children.”
—David Elkind (20th century)
“There is hardly an American male of my generation who has not at one time or another tried to master the victory cry of the great ape as it issued from the androgynous chest of Johnny Weissmuller, to the accompaniment of thousands of arms and legs snapping during attempts to swing from tree to tree in the backyards of the Republic.”
—Gore Vidal (b. 1925)
“... teaching to me was anathema, chiefly because it would condemn me to a world of petticoats.”
—Agnes E. Meyer (18871970)
