The Faculty of Education offers a number of Institutes in Education. These
are intended primarily to provide opportunity for teachers to gain knowledge
of new approaches to the teaching of existing school programs and to gain
insight into aspects of new programs as they are introduced in the school
system. These Institutes normally carry six or nine credit hours. Students
who enrol in Institutes of six weeks duration or less will not normally be
permitted to register for any other courses. Additional information on Institutes
may be obtained from the Faculty of Education. Not all Institutes are offered
every semester or summer.
NOTE: Students wishing to enrol in Institutes should contact the Office of Undergraduate Student Services.
