Do you have an interesting story to tell? We’re looking for graduates of our Graduate Diploma in Education to share their experiences – the offbeat practicums, eccentric professors and amazing friendships.
We welcome all anecdotes, experiences, reflections, and highlights from our past students of the Graduate Diploma in Education (or Dip. Ed., as it was known for many years). Highlights from these stories will feature in a future edition of The Educator.
From 2018, the Graduate Diploma in Education will be replaced by Master of Teaching (Secondary). As the last cohort of students graduate, we are celebrating the impact UWA’s Graduate Diploma in Education has had on the educational landscape.
The University of Western Australia offered the first ‘education’ unit to students in 1916 and for most of its 100-year history, the Graduate Diploma in Education has been the flagship course for secondary initial teacher education in the State. The course provided a pathway for thousands of graduate teachers to schools in Western Australian, Australia and internationally.
As the minimum volume of learning has been increased nationally, the Master of Teaching (Secondary) will take the place of the Graduate Diploma in Education and we look forward to this new chapter in education courses at The University of Western Australia.
