Underlying Principles

The following principles underlie all teacher preparation programs:

  1. The education of a teacher is a continuous, life-long process. In addition to emphasizing basic or fundamental preparation, the initial pre-service experience should aid the development of attitudes that encourage self-evaluation and improvement, and the acquisition of knowledge and skills that facilitate life-long learning.
  2. All teacher preparation degree programs provide intending teachers with essential practical skills, a knowledge of theory and its relationship to practice, liberal studies, and subject-matter competence.
  3. The Faculty of Education is committed to providing quality teacher preparation programs and recognizes the importance of continuously monitoring, evaluating and refining its offerings to adequately reflect changes in society and advances in knowledge.
  4. The Bachelor of Education degree consists of a minimum of ★120.

Program Planning

The Faculty of Education provides students with an official program outline when they are admitted. Using this, students are expected to be able to identify remaining course requirements for their particular degree program.

Students are responsible for being acquainted with all applicable regulations and meeting the requirements for the degree as outlined. Any exceptions to the requirements must be approved in writing by the Associate Dean (Undergraduate Student Services) with one copy to be placed in the student's file and one to be given to the student.

Note: Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Education (After Degree) should consult Bachelor of Education Programs for Holders of Approved Degrees  for program details.
