Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In 1987, the Times Educational Supplement reported that a UK-wide survey of Faculties of Education found that "Monash University in Australia was the surprise rival to Stanford and Harvard." The former school headmaster Richard Selby Smith, as the first Professor and Dean, had established the Faculty of Education in 1964 with a handful of staff and students. The Monash graduate Diploma in Education soon developed a fine reputation. Then, the Faculty extended its activity into postgraduate courses for teachers, first at Bachelor of Education and then Master of Education level, catering, too, for specialist studies in special education, psychology, and educational administration. The Faculty soon developed an international reputation for its work in many fields, including science education, mathematics, educational history, philosophy, sociology of education, special education, social psychology, multi-culturalism, learning theory, the education of women, languages and literacy, and social education. Fifty years on, the Faculty has spread across campuses at Clayton, Gippsland, Peninsula, and Berwick, but retained its reputation for excellence, with a ranking of sixth best in the world. This history tells the story of how the Faculty of Education at Monash University developed from its modest beginnings to a position of international eminence. (Series: Education)
