College of Education Offers New Master’s Program Aimed at Asia-Pacific Region

College of Education logoThe Edu­ca­tion­al Foun­da­tions fac­ul­ty in the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Col­lege of Edu­ca­tion has devel­oped a new master’s-degree pro­gram tar­get­ed to the Asia-Pacif­ic region. The pro­gram, titled “Glob­al Per­spec­tives on Edu­ca­tion­al Pol­i­cy and Prac­tice,” is designed to pre­pare edu­ca­tors and pol­i­cy researchers and ana­lysts for lead­er­ship in edu­ca­tion­al and research set­tings. This pro­gram will exam­ine how glob­al­iza­tion affects edu­ca­tion­al pol­i­cy and prac­tice in a mul­ti­tude of ways from ear­ly child­hood edu­ca­tion through advanced grad­u­ate stud­ies.

The cours­es in this 22-month pro­gram will focus on top­i­cal issues that are com­mon to all edu­ca­tion­al sys­tems and are appro­pri­ate for edu­ca­tion pro­fes­sion­als in diverse geo­graph­i­cal loca­tions. The online pro­gram fea­tures ongo­ing, syn­chro­nous dis­cus­sions that per­mit con­tin­u­ous dia­logue and inquiry among par­tic­i­pants across the Pacif­ic Ocean. While most of the assign­ments and lec­tures can be accessed by stu­dents on their own time, week­ly dis­cus­sions will bring every­one togeth­er. Class­es are online and require a com­put­er with a micro­phone, speak­er, and a ded­i­cat­ed Inter­net link.

Class­es will begin August 20, 2018.
