Event description

Description

This Master of Education (MEd) program focuses on understanding how learners’ imaginations develop and exploring ways to engage and grow imagination in learning the material of the curriculum.

Additionally, it has been designed to respond to the particular challenges of the new BC curriculum, with its emphasis on Essential Questions, Big Ideas and Competencies. Teachers of all grade levels will learn how to adapt curriculum and pedagogy to foster students' imaginations to engage with and respond to curricular themes and topics.

The Master of Education (MEd) program is designed for working professionals. This two-year degree program offers the opportunity to obtain a high-quality master's degree in your local community.
