Small Vendors Fair at the November 24 Pro-D Day

We are having a small vendors fair at the November 24 Pro-D. A number of local services and U’mista Cultural Centre will have tables.
Kool and Child, from Nanaimo, will also be there. You can order classroom resources and Christmas presents online now and they will bring your orders with them. Just choose the ‘pick up in store’ option when placing your order. Also, if there are certain types of items you would like to see at the Kool and Child table, let your pro-d rep know and we will pass that information along so that they can bring those items with them.

 A part-time fully online graduate program offered by leading UBC Science Education researchers to working professionals in Canada and beyond.

Our graduate programs in Science Education are ideal for those seeking to make a difference in teacher education; learning and teaching at the elementary, secondary and post-secondary levels; industry; teaching and research institutions; government and private sector bodies; museums; outdoor settings and other science-based organizations.

 The MEd in Science Education offers students the opportunity to pursue a wide range of research and professional interests in the field of STEM education, with the emphasis on science education.

The SCED program¹s philosophy is that theory and practice are inextricably linked and work hand in hand to improve the quality of education.

Educators are empowered by collaboration across disciplines, countries, and contexts. Therefore this program values diverse expertise and experience; collaboration and mentorship; and innovative ideas, theories and practices.

Through the pursuit of student individual and collective interests, graduate students will develop and enhance their knowledge and practice of Science Education. Graduate students will be equipped to advance the quality of education and/or assume leadership roles in the field.

This cohort is poised to directly address and give meaning to these initiatives and curriculum changes through creative and critical inquiry, advanced intellectual engagement, and empirical and theoretical analysis.
