FACULTY OF EDUCATION

HIGH QUALITY EDUCATION DEGREES FROM A CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE

Back To Top

BUILDING ON OVER 20 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE IN POSTGRADUATE CHRISTIAN EDUCATION.

The degrees offered by the Faculty of Education are all taught from a Christian perspective. They encourage teachers and educational leaders to think deeply about how their work as educators integrates with a Christian worldview. They provide opportunities to learn from great thinkers and practitioners about the intersection of education and Christian beliefs, and to consider how this relates to the daily life of teachers and school leaders.

"There is a real need for leaders in schools, now and into the future."

DR PAMELA HARVEY

  • BSC (HONS), CERT ED, MED, PHD MACEL
  • Senior Lecturer

Pam Harvey is passionate about Christian education and over the years has helped numerous teachers and pre-service teachers to develop a sound philosophy and practice of Christian education. She has been involved in Christian education for over thirty years, working in Australia with Christian Community Schools, the Institute of Tertiary Education and Wesley Institute. Her involvement in postgraduate courses led to her doctoral thesis which investigated the motivations of teachers in Christian schools to engage in postgraduate study.

From 2009 to 2011 she was Head of Primary Education and Head of Curriculum Methods at the Teachers' College, Universitas Pelita Harapan, a Christian university near Jakarta. Her time in Indonesia was a life-changing experience as Pam worked with committed and dedicated Christian pre-service and postgraduate teachers who are being sent to Christian schools across the archipelago. She is encouraged that Christian teachers from Indonesia and other overseas countries are studying at Morling Education alongside their Australian colleagues.

DR NOLA NORRIS

  • Program Coordinator

Nola is Deputy Director of Programs in the Faculty of Education at Morling, where she oversees the Master of Teaching program. Her interests include learning and teaching, cognition and metacognition, teacher professional development, giftedness, twice-exceptionality, and autism/Asperger's syndrome.

After a varied career working in K-12 schools and at university, Nola completed her PhD in 2014. Her thesis title is "A new perspective on thinking, memory and learning in gifted adults with Asperger syndrome: Five phenomenological case studies". Her research utilised neuroscience and autism research to interpret findings from in-depth interviews with gifted adults with Asperger syndrome.
