DEAN’S MESSAGE

     

Bismillahirahmanirahim,

     

It is my pleasure and honour to welcome all new students to the 2014/2015 Academic Year and thanks for making Faculty of Education, University of Malaya your preferred choice. We are an established Faculty that has made its mark not only nationally but also globally.

 

As University of Malaya is ranked better and better each year at the international arena, the Faculty of Education has also been able to raise its standards to become one of the top 100 education faculties in the world. This success did not happen overnight but is from years of toil by faculty members and students. Being 50 years of age, the faculty has gracefully aged to wisdom, witnessing about 20 000 graduates over the years.

 

Our degree programmes do not only provide students with sought after knowledge and skills, but also link theory to practice to better prepare students for the workforce. To date, our graduates do not only shine in the public and local industries. Many are successful personnels of private and international institutions as well.

 

As much as we take pride in such successes, the faculty understands that there is a need to consider latest challenges faced by the nation and take calculated steps to educate and acculturate our new graduates into becoming thinking, researching individuals whose ideas are not only at par with those from world class universities, but perhaps, surpass them.

 

To attain the nation’s education goals, the university and faculty’s mission and vision must be upheld, and strategies must be planned with utmost care for the future generation to reap fruits of success from the seeds we sow.

 

Regards and all the best.

     

“EXCELLENCE WITH UM”

GENERAL INFORMATION

       

The University of Malaya, the first local university, was established in 1962 to meet the higher education needs of the country. A year and a half later, in June 1963, the School of Education was formed. The school offered the postgraduate Diploma in Education to graduates who chose to enter the teaching profession. The school expanded rapidly and was upgraded to the status of faculty in July 1965. The Masters of Education (M.Ed) programme was introduced for the first time two years later and this was followed by the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) programme in 1969.

 

Since its establishment, the Faculty of Education has successfully trained almost 20,000 graduates. From among them, more than 15,000 have graduated with the Diploma in Education, more than 1,000 with a Master degree and about 3,500 with a Bachelor in Education degree.

 

In tandem with the University of Malaya’s vision, the Vision of the Faculty of Education is

   

to be a centre of excellence in education and human capital development at the national and international levels

 
 

Core Values of the University of Malaya is

       
 

Integrity

Professionalism

     
 

Respect

Meritocracy

     
 

Academic Freedom

Teamwork

     
 

Open-mindedness

Creativity

     
 

Accountability

Social Responsibility

     
 

Towards this end, the Mission of the Faculty of Education is

     

to generate knowledge while striving to be a centre of excellence in education and human capital development through teaching, research, innovation, publication and consultancy

 

To achieve this mission, the Faculty has identified the following general objectives:

     

To produce competent teachers for schools and other educational institutions

The Faculty is proactive in keeping pace with the ever-changing demands in the field of education.

 

To produce experts in all areas of education and hu man development

 

To become a postgraduate centre in education and human development

 

To become a centre of innovation in basic and applied research in all areas of education and human

 

development To become the centre of training and consultation in the field of education for organizations and

 

institutions

This includes the reappraisal of programmes and courses, curriculum revisions and departmental restructuring to accommodate new changes when necessary.

 

In 1970, the structure of the Faculty comprised five divisions. However, because of new developments and paradigm shifts in the educational system, the Faculty had a series of restructuring and reorganisation exercises to enable the Faculty to realise its vision and objectives. The latest organisational restructuring was carried out in 2001 resulting in the formation of the following departments.

 
       

10

 
     
   

Department of Educational Foundations and Humanities

     

Department of Educational Psychology and Counselling

     

Department of Educational Management, Planning and Policy

     

Department of Language and Literacy Education

     

Department of Mathematics and Science Education

     

Department of Curriculum and Instructional Technology

     

Besides offering courses at the postgraduate level since its inception, the Faculty also conducts undergraduate programmes. In 1989, the Faculty started its own undergraduate programme the Bachelor of Education in the Teaching of English as a Second Language (B. Ed. TESL). The programme is being run in collaboration with the Faculty of Languages and Linguistics and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Other degree programmes offered by the Faculty include the Bachelor of Early Childhood Education which commenced in 1998 followed by the Bachelor of Counselling in 1997.

 

Besides the above programmes, the Faculty is also involved in joint programmes with other faculties. Among these programmes is the Bachelor of Science with Education (B.Sc.Ed.). The programme was initiated jointly with the Faculty of Science in 1975, to meet the great demand for science and mathematics teachers at the upper secondary level. Another programme is the Bachelor of Islamic Education (B. Islamic Ed.) which was introduced in 1982. This programme is conducted jointly with the Islamic Academy, University of Malaya, to prepare teachers to teach Islamic Studies in schools. Other programmes are the Bachelor of Education (Teaching of Tamil) conducted jointly with the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Bachelor of Language and Linguistics with Education (Chinese) conducted jointly with the Faculty of Languages and Linguistics.

 
 

Currently the Faculty offers the following undergraduate programmes:

     

1.

Bachelor of Education (TESL)

     

2.

Bachelor of Early Childhood Education

     

3.

Bachelor of Counseling

     

The Faculty’s role is not limited to teacher education only. Each Faculty member has his/her own area of expertise in a particular field of education and many serve as advisers or consultants to the Ministry of Education and various organisations. Some members of the Faculty work closely with overseas and international agencies including the World Bank, UNESCO, UNICEF, IBRD, RESCAM and RELC. All academic staff members are actively involved in research and numerous papers and articles have been published in both local and international journals. Research by faculty members is largely sponsored by grants from the University or agencies from within and outside the country.

 

The Faculty of Education has embarked on a mission to enhance its role as a centre for higher degrees in education. The Faculty aims to produce more postgraduate educators to meet the demands of a dynamic education system. With the present academic staff strength of nearly 100 members compared to only five in 1963, the Faculty can proudly claim to having a pool of talented expertise with the ability to make greater contributions to development in the field of education.

 

The Faculty of Education has the largest number of postgraduate students pursuing either the Master or PhD degrees at the University of Malaya. While most of these graduate students are Malaysians, there are also postgraduate students who come from foreign countries like Algeria, Libya, Thailand, Brunei, Fiji, Sri Lanka, the Cook Islands, Samoa, China, various African and other countries. With the presence of international students, the exposure and training received is enriching as students are able to share their diverse experiences and views.

In effect, all staff members are bilingual, that is, they are proficient in the Malay language as well as in English.
