Among the central features of the Master of Teaching course is the interplay between research, policy and practice, and the need for teachers to critically reflect on their practices and transform them as a consequence of this analysis. The central focus of this unit of study is on the design, implementation, and reporting of a Professional Research Project (PRP) undertaken by each pass-level candidate during the internship. The PRP articulates the development and/or change of educational practice. This generally relates to some improvement of, or significant development in, a candidate's teaching practice in the classroom and the impacts on the intended outcomes of student learning. In addition to a focus on researching in context, students are expected to demonstrate current knowledge and proficiency in using appropriate ICT tools to engage and support student learning.
