B. ED (HONS) PRIMARY EDUCATION (TOP-UP)
The Bachelor of Education in Primary Education is a programme developed for a blended
(both online and face-to-face tutoring) mode delivery by the Open University of Mauritius
to build solid foundations for teaching and learning in primary schools. Primary teaching
is becoming a more challenging and diverse career, which requires a range of personal,
professional and academic qualities from educators to be able to practice effective
teaching and active learning in the classroom. To succeed in teaching, educators must
have an in-depth understanding of the complex processes of learning based on their
professional engagement with theory, research and practice. This B Ed (Hons) Primary
Education is a tailor-made degree programme which aims at helping primary educators
in developing into professionally more equipped providers of knowledge, attitudes,
aptitudes and skills to their pupils.
