FACULTY PROPOSAL - EL (Work in progress)
  • Our vision states…”The Department of Education is a vibrant centre of learning, committed to quality teaching, research, and community service, and striving to become a leading teacher education unit, recognised for its service to students, community and the advancement of knowledge”.
slide9

The themes underlying our vision include the following:

  • A vibrant centre of learning: this reflects our commitment to motivating and encouraging others – staff and students – who are involved in what is often a lonely journey (Cut out) researching or supervising; and our mutual feelings of joy we have when we each accomplish our goals;
  • Commitment: It is central to the achievement of our strategic goals;
  • Quality teaching, research, and community service: our view of quality is linked to the end-user’s assessment of quality service, and to the maintenance of standards. We pride ourselves on ensuring we are responding to the development needs, locally, and that our service to students and community is timely, accurate, adequate, reliable, and the people delivering the service are competent;
slide10

Striving to becoming: suggesting that we are never complacent but always ‘stretching’ ourselves, to ensure that we, not only remain relevant and on the cutting edge of the issues central to our core business, but that we provide the best services (high quality teaching and research) to our students and communities.

We see all of these themes aligned with the vision of, not just our faculty but also with that of, the university.

(The vision will be crafted once the Department is established)

To achieve this, the Department will:

  • Create and sustain a teaching and learning environment that supports scholarly inquiry and application of knowledge that guides everyday practice;
  • Provide high quality teaching, research training and supervision that will lead to a significant contribution to knowledge;
  • Contribute to individual, institutional and national teaching and research agendas that respond to contemporary and future challenges and issues in the field of education;
  • Develop and nurture young educational practitioners, researchers and academics;
  • Develop and implement a teaching system that reaches the highest standards of excellence.
