What is this course about?

CSU's Master of Education (Teacher Librarianship) is targeted to meet the needs of teachers who wish to become teacher librarians, and practicing teacher librarians without a full specialist qualification in teacher librarianship.

The changing nature of schools and education has brought a growing demand for a wide range of information resources and for guidance and support in the effective use of these resources within the curriculum. Teacher librarians are meeting that demand by providing effective access to information resources and services, playing a vital role in facilitating the management and use of information within teaching and learning, leading in the development of information literacy, and managing people and resources.

With a respected history of academic excellence the teacher librarianship team at Charles Sturt University is committed to the development of teacher librarians as:

  • dynamic leaders, committed to enriching teaching and learning across the school
  • successful collaborators, working with teachers to incorporate information literacy, literature and technologies into the curriculum
  • skilful practitioners, providing information services to support programs within the school
  • information specialists, developing and implementing resource and inquiry based processes and strategies to improve student learning
  • informed educators who value the importance of evidence based principles to support professional practice

Our learning support systems include:

  • highly qualified and responsive academic staff
  • access to experienced learning skills support staff
  • extensive online library services
  • modern IT facilities to support distance education with a focus on providing access to support and resources through the internet, email, leading edge online learning platforms and Web 2.0 technologies

Practical experience

The development of practical skills is a vital part of the course. Within the subject ETL507 Professional Experience/Professional Portfolio there is a professional study visit subject, comprising four days of visits to a range of information agencies, and a two-week professional placement. These components, together with assessment tasks across a range of subjects, provide the opportunity to develop skills and reflect on theory and practice.
