Event description

Description

This Graduate Diploma in Advanced Professional Studies in Education (GDE) has been developed by Field Programs in partnership with School District #42 Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows for elementary and secondary teachers.

If you are a K-12 teacher looking to deepen your understanding of Inclusive Education (Special Education as articulated by the Ministry of Education), or in becoming a learning support teacher, while engaging in a professional learning community focused on sustained reflective inquiry into school-based practice, this program is for you.

Program Themes:

  • Exploring developmental, constructivist and inclusive approaches to education

  • Connecting educational purposes, beliefs, values and practices

  • Examining theories, principles and frameworks of inclusive education, including English Language Learning and culturally responsive teaching

  • Exploring proactive approaches to assessing student behaviour and
    strategies for support

  • Designing responsive classroom practices

  • Designing quality educational plans for students with complex needs

  • Linking assessment and instruction to address diverse learning profiles

  • Building and sustaining collaborative learning communities

  • Creating inclusive environments, which includes understanding
    socio-cultural perspectives

  • Engaging with Indigenous and holistic approaches to teaching and learning
    (First Peoples Principles of Learning)

  • Collaborating, supporting, and strengthening relationships with students, colleagues, parents and other educational partners

Ideally Suited For:

This two-year, 30-unit program of study is for teachers whose primary focus is school-based educational practice. It provides the opportunity to engage in focused, sustained reflective inquiry. Completion of the diploma allows teachers to move from TQS category 4 to TQS 5 or from category 5 to 5+.

GDE Features: Range of Program Themes, Cohort Based, 2 years (6 terms), and TQS Upgrade Opportunity.

Programs are open to teachers outside of the hosting school district. You do not need to be a part of that school district to apply or be admitted into the program. The classes will, however, take place in the hosting school district.
