MASTER OF PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE & Leadership
In the modern professional landscape it is important to be informed by evidence-based practice, so as to support the best outcomes for those that we work with. At BTI we also recognise that we are created to not just engage with the social and physical aspects of people’s lives in the places where we live and work, but also with the spiritual dimension. It is this unique aspect of our approach, together with an integration of theoretical, personal, and professional learning spaces that this programmes offers.
A key component of our professional master’s degree programme is to heighten awareness of one’s own gifts, talents, strengths, weaknesses and ways of thinking that influence our ‘ways of being’. By engaging in this way, students enter into an iterative dialogue between the existing literature, personal experience, the Biblical narrative and their own professional context, allowing each to inform the other. These cycles of critical reflection provide opportunities for questioning societal, cultural, and institutional norms and potentially challenging some of the prevailing assumptions and values that inform them.
Postgraduate Diploma of Professional Practice
All students enroll on the Master’s programme, but there is the option for some students to exit after completion of the four 30 credit taught courses without completing the thesis.
Students would then be awarded the Postgraduate Diploma of Professional Practice and Leadership qualification.
Applicants are welcomed from all professional backgrounds who are seeking to transition to a deeper level of understanding of the intersection between their personal gifts and calling and their professional context. The completion of a reputable postgraduate programme of study such as the Master of Professional Practice and Leadership can facilitate career advancement either within a current professional field, or into an allied field.
bti graduate profile
“Articulating my Master’s journey can only be done through using the metaphor of mining for gold. The papers and educators in this programme equipped me with the dispositions and tools to head into the epistemological mine. As the title of this programme suggests, my professional practice as a teacher was refined through each exploration of literature that shook the dirt around me. Unearthing the gold from my final research project was done in partnership with my supervisor, the findings of which have forever shaped my professional practice.”
