We are just two weeks away from a new school year! The Faculty of Education will host orientation meetings for new students in the Intermediate/Secondary program, the Primary/Elementary First Degree program and in Music Education.
The Faculty of Education has been spreading out blankets in their classrooms across Newfoundland and Labrador as an interactive new way for both undergraduate and graduate students to learn about Aboriginal history.
This spring, two Faculty of Education professors offered a first-time institute that got students out of the classroom and into the community to experience and learn about arts, sciences and humanities first-hand.
From the design and creation of an award-winning, online graduate course on creativity in the classroom; to delivering a keynote address for professional development on teaching the arts; to contributing a chapter to a book on web-based arts education; creativity is flourishing in a big way in the Faculty of Education.
Ms. Jody Burke, a recent graduate of the Master of Education (Post-Secondary Studies) program, has been awarded the National University Technology Network (NUTN) Student Recognition Award.
The Faculty of Education would like to extend our congratulations to Dr. Anne Burke on her successful Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) application entitled Developing a pedagogy of social justice in the classroom through postcolonial literature.
