The Master of Arts in Educational Management (MAEM) programme is designed for individuals who hold management positions in the education service (e.g. principals, vice-principals, heads of department and teachers with positions of responsibility and MOE officers); as well as individuals with managerial experiences from other learning and training enterprises (e.g. military, nursing and other private and tertiary educational institutions).
This programme pursues three broad aims: (i) to enable aspiring leaders in education to become more informed about critical issues in educational management, and thus to apply intellectual approaches to their work (ii) to help them cope positively and effectively with the management challenges that are currently impacting on education (iii) to enable them to acquire a recognised and valued postgraduate award. The topics covered include: research methods in education (quantitative and qualitative); organisational learning and development; philosophy of education; interdisciplinary thinking for educational leaders; ethics and leadership for educators; assessment quality and standards; supervisory leadership and curriculum design; servant leadership; theory and practice of teachers’
professional learning; teachers as leaders; mentoring for professional development and leadership succession; management of educational technology applications; comparative issues in education; mentoring for professional development and leadership succession; school marketing; school and organisational effectiveness; historical and philosophical foundations of theories of educational policy; key issues in education policy; and leadership in early childhood and primary education.
