The School of Education & Cognitive Science (SECS) envisions to be a leader and catalyst for educational change in the Asian region. The main thrust of the School is teacher education providing practicing teachers an opportunity to upgrade themselves through a flexible blended learning approach which combines both online and face-to-face interaction.
SECS prides itself with providing educational access to even the remotest parts of the country and the region with quality programmes at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The programmes offered include language education, early childhood education, instructional technology, curriculum, educational psychology, educational assessment, science & mathematics education, educational management and nursing education.
The School prepares graduates to take up leadership positions in preschool, primary, secondary and tertiary education as well as private education enterprises. The knowledge, skills and values incorporated in the various programmes seek to ensure that graduates meet the needs of a rapidly changing educational sector and to effectively adapt to a society that is increasingly diverse both culturally and socially.
The School has been actively involved in research in collaboration with other universities and the Ministry of Education. The focus of research is on the use of Web 2.0 tools in e-learning, teacher beliefs and practices, content curation and development, design and development of self-instructional modules. The findings of these research efforts will further enhance the quality of programmes delivered and equip students with up-to-date knowledge and technological skills to function in a dynamic global environment.
AeU’s School of Education & Cognitive Science (SECS) is firmly grounded in the values of scholarship, quality, integrity, diversity, and equality. We offer programmes that equip students with relevant theory and practice to function in a global society and teach effectively in culturally and socially diverse classrooms. Graduate programmes offered provide opportunities for advanced study and research towards the development of innovative responses to the challenges of 21st century education.
If you share our goal of making quality education accessible to more people, thereby improving themselves and the society they belong to, we encourage you to consider SECS as a place of study or to engage in research and outreach efforts.
