Faculty of Education
The Faculty of Education believes that the future depends on the next generation of teachers. Our teacher preparation program involves learning through a combination of dynamic theoretical and practical experiences. We are known for our extensive field-based component that offers 27 weeks of practical classroom experience in a broad range of schools from rural to urban and elementary to secondary – some of the most extensive in Canada. Our students develop a strong knowledge base in their intended teaching areas. They also receive in-depth preparation in how to teach, including both general and subject area instructional methods. We are proud that our pre-service teachers are sought out even before graduation, and readily find teaching positions in Alberta and throughout the world.
“On behalf of our faculty and staff, we are truly grateful to our donors. Thank you for believing in our vision of enriching the world with caring, dedicated teachers that are professionals and contribute to community. Thank you for helping shape one of the finest teacher preparation programs in the country.” – Dr. Craig Loewen.
