About the Education Faculty
Monash University’s Faculty of Education has a national and international reputation for excellence in teaching and research. We offer a diverse and innovative curriculum that responds to international and local community needs, producing graduates who lead professional practice, public debate and policy, and community action around the world.
Under the leadership of Professor John Loughran, the faculty is focused on learning and development in people of all ages, and the faculty is internationally recognised for its originality, rigour and impartiality.
Monash education graduates come from diverse backgrounds. They are capable and ethical, recognised for their knowledge, intellectual engagement, skill, innovation and flexibility.
The Faculty is located across four Australian campuses – Berwick, Clayton, Gippsland and Peninsula – and also offers courses in Singapore and Hong Kong. The Faculty currently has over 4000 students enrolled - over 800 are international students who come from more than 50 different countries.
The Faculty operates as a single department under the leadership of the Dean of Education. Its governance is organised along functional lines: Curriculum, Research, Development, Environment and Resources, and Staff. Each of these portfolios has a Committee associated with it, chaired by an Associate Dean with designated responsibility for that area. The Faculty's Operational Plan is organised to reflect this portfolio structure with outcomes, strategies and targets assigned to the relevant committee under the leadership of the appropriate Associate Dean or Faculty Manager.
