Establishment of New Major, ‘AI Convergence Education,’ within Graduate School of Education The Graduate School of Education (Dean Han You-Kyung) has been approved for a new Master of AI Convergence Education program, as part of the Ministry of Education’s project, and is going to accept admissions applications for a master’s degree of “AI Convergence Education” for the fall 2020 semester. Compulsory software education is broadly introduced in elementary and middle schools starting this year in keeping with the Ministry’s policy to strengthen AI education based on the mandatory curriculum, which emphasizes the necessity for enhancing AI education and cultivating a specialized workforce.

To this end, the school plans to run programs that aim to strengthen practical leadership in AI convergence education by utilizing 4th industrial revolution technologies, in collaboration with various related departments at Ewha University and other excellent researchers in the field of big data and convergence education. It also plans to develop and operate diverse AI convergence education models. In addition, on February 10th (Mon), the school signed a “Memorandum of Understanding for Establishment and Operation of AI Convergence Education Graduate School” with the Incheon Metropolitan City Office of Education. It also plans to complete MOUs in March with the Seoul Metropolitan and Gyeonggi-do Education Offices. Elementary and middle school teachers who complete the master’s degree in education (AI Convergence Education) will teach AI convergence classes in their school, and if they are recommended or selected for the program by a metropolitan or provincial education office, they will receive support fund within the amount less than 50% of tuition (up to 1.5 million won). The Graduate School of Education opened in 1967 operates excellent pre- and post-teacher education programs for preschool, elementary, and middle school teachers, and was selected as one of the best graduate schools in the 2016 education institutions evaluation by the Ministry of Education. It was also selected as the best institution in the 2010 nationwide evaluation of graduate schools by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, and the second best in the 2006 evaluation by the Ministry of Education. The school is expected to make another leap forward, with establishment of the new major, to a major institution that cultivates teachers who are equipped with the capabilities necessary in the 4th industrial revolution era.
