As a result of an extensive curriculum review of a master's programme for teachers in the School of Information Studies, a multi-disciplinary degree programme in education and information studies was developed to uniquely facilitate educators' capacity to be responsive to the demands of a digitally connected world. Charles Sturt University's new Master of Education (Knowledge Networks and Digital Innovation) aims to develop agile leaders in new cultures of digital formal and informal learning. By examining key features and influences of global connectedness, information organisation, communication and participatory cultures of learning, students are provided with the opportunity to reflect on their professional practice in a networked learning community, and to improve learning and teaching in digital environments. This paper presents a case study of the implementation of the new programme, reviews the first session experiences ofthe students, and presents findings from student evaluation of the levels of success achieved.
