The 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.
