Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) - Program 2012

The general purpose of the program is to prepare educators for careers in a variety of educational institutions, including K to 12 schools, where they will work to advance the intellectual, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual development of all learners and provide leadership in incorporating diversity and inclusion in the development of educational communities. In order to support province-wide enthusiasm for interns in School Division contexts as well as schools in First Nations communities, the College of Education has developed partnership opportunities in diverse locations and looks forward to the learning these opportunities provide, as well as the energy and innovation our interns will extend.

The program is designed to prepare candidates to appreciate the highest aspirations for teaching and learning that educational theory has to offer and to begin to develop candidates’ capacities to discern and to express those aspirations in applying educational theory and ethical values into practice, policy, and research. Specifically, the program is designed to prepare educators who strive to recognize learning as valuing and constructing, affirm dignity and respect for individuals, support communities, build emancipatory action for social and ecological justice, engage in education as transformative praxis, and consider educational possibilities from multiple philosophical perspectives.

This is accomplished by exposing candidates to integrated on-campus and field study opportunities designed to enhance understanding of the theory-practice continuum and to develop competencies in working with children and youth. In particular, the program aligns with competencies approved by the Teacher Education, Classification and Certification (TECC) Board in four categories: professional/personal, knowledge, instruction, and curriculum. Candidates will engage in community-based activities, self-directed learning, critical reflection, and inquiry projects to deepen their awareness of the roles of educators as teacher-scholars.
