Reuniting with MGSE Alumni from 1950s – 1970s
Last year the Graduate School welcomed MGSE alumni who had attended the Melbourne Teachers’ College between the 1950s and 1970s. The events were held to build relationships with alumni who attended the amalgamated institutions that eventually became part of the Graduate School. Many of the attendees had not previously considered themselves alumni of the University and the morning tea provided an avenue for bringing them into the MGSE community.
The program included an overview of MGSE’s vision and strategy, an outline of the current Master of Teaching program and a slide presentation featuring memorabilia from the University Archives, including photographs and teaching documentation from the Melbourne Teachers’ College, from the 1800s through to the 1980s. The alumni group expressed great appreciation for the opportunity to learn about the current courses, meet up with former colleagues and to feel a part of the Graduate School.
