In our continued effort to lead the way in teacher education in Alberta, the Faculty of Education is seeking your help to prepare and refine our programs. We would be most appreciative of your participation in this 15 to 20 minute survey.
Teaching and Assessing for Life Beyond the Classroom

Why was it important for you to read and share with teachers, educators, and students on Twitter at this time? "Once schools closed, I started getting requests from teachers who had been in the middle of studying one of my novels in class.

The Faculty of Education at the University of Lethbridge is pleased to have two approved pathways leading to Alberta Education Leadership Quality Standard certification: Master of Education (Educational Leadership) and Leadership Quality Standard Two-course Package.
Coping with COVID: Harnessing our Natural Stress Response
“We are wired to bounce back, but first we have to help our nervous system receive a message that despite being uncomfortable we will survive. We are ok," says Dr. Dawn McBride, Registered Psychologist and Associate Professor with the Faculty of Education.
