Course Information

The Master in Teaching and Learning (MTL) is an entry-level qualification for teachers. Students who will follow this course will specialise in Pedagogical Content Knowledge (after having obtained a first-cycle degree at first-cycle level in Content Knowledge), in Educational Context Knowledge and in Educational Research and Inquiry. These are intrinsically related to the Field Placement in schools. Furthermore, the wider educational context will be included in the programme through Educational Themes and Creative Positive Learning Environments. The MTL bridges theory and practice thereby forming educators as reflective, inquiring and collegial professionals. It promotes teaching and learning for democracy and social justice.

Skills acquired throughout the course are directly transferable to classrooms, schools and communities: these include teaching techniques, class management skills, teachers as leaders, democracy and social knowledge within the teaching profession etc. The research element of the MTL will allow students to engage with specific issues related to Education and/or their field of specialisation.

The MTL is a two-year full-time course, which enables graduates to teach at Primary and Secondary level, according to the area of specialisation chosen. The course will be offered to prepare teachers in a number of subjects. The areas which are on offer during this academic year are available on the Faculty’s website here.
