Our Faculty of Education prepares prospective teachers for a dynamic and rewarding career through unique and innovative programming. By emphasizing critical thinking skills and collaborative learning, we give you the flexibility to explore the teaching methods, concepts and values that are meaningful to you.
We are leading the way in teacher education. Our program emphasizes practical, experiential learning to ensure you are fully prepared to enter into the workforce post-graduation. Our programs are continually adapted to encompass a variety of educational settings and training opportunities at the Primary-Junior (P/J) level allowing you to teach Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6.
Unlike our Concurrent Education program, which is completed along with an undergraduate degree in another discipline, our Consecutive Education program is a two-year program open to those who have already completed a three- or four-year undergraduate degree.
We offer unique courses to develop your professional interests while addressing theoretical and practical aspects of teaching such as Critical Digital Literacy, Religious Education, and Global Citizenship Education.
Our faculty members are experts and active researchers in their areas of study including:
- Early Literacy and Numeracy
- Digital Literacy
- Special Education
- History of Education
- Comparative and International Education
They are committed to helping you explore your passions and interests, mentoring your personal and professional growth. Our class sizes are small and conducive to one-on-one learning opportunities with professors. Collaborating with our faculty will expand your knowledge and build effective teaching skills to shape the young minds of tomorrow.
As a Bachelor of Education student you will participate in 105 days of in-class placement over two years, providing you with the opportunities to discover your own teaching style and enter the job market with the necessary experience to be successful.
