Master's Degree "Educating in Diversity" (MDED): Toward Inclusion Education Quality
Alegre, Olga M.; Villar, Luis M.
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v22 n1 p42-54 2010
Special education master's degrees are proliferating, most probably in response to the requirement for all special education teachers to be highly qualified. The aim of the study is to evaluate the 10-year Master's Degree "Educating in Diversity" (MDED) at the University of La Laguna (ULL) and to examine the extent to which the development of diversity competencies in graduates is related to their perceptions of the overall quality of the postgraduate program. Two hundred and eight University students and 235 part-time faculty members evaluated the basic program indicators. Finally, MDED results gathered from 135 postgraduates and 707 beneficiaries indicate high levels of purpose achievement and satisfaction with the program, the faculty, and the curricular content. The framework for improvement in which the MDED is viewed as compatible with national and regional evaluation and accrediting agencies is discussed. (Contains 6 tables and 2 figures.)
