New Online M.Ed. Program at the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy

I have been teaching graduate courses in the Faculty of Education at UBC for the last 8 years. During this time, I have worked with many practising teachers, who have decided to pursue their advance academic degree. One of the challenges they faced was combining work, family and their studies. Commute to UBC was a big part of it. Therefore, I am very excited to share the news about our new and exciting on-line Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Science Education part-time professional degree program that we will commence at UBC starting September 2018.

While designing this program we recognized the keen desire of practising science teachers in school districts outside of the Lower Mainland of BC to earn their Master’s degrees, and the challenges they face in being able to undertake such professional development given the issues of geographic distance and access from districts outside of Vancouver. Even for the teachers who work in Vancouver, the commute to UBC can be daunting if not a waste of time. Consequently, we have developed a new Master’s Degree program especially for such science teachers that is delivered fully on-line without the need to relocate or travel to UBC Vancouver.

A full description of the new program can be found at There will be livestreamed information session on Friday October 27th 4:00-5:30 PM, details of how to participate can be found at Feel free to email or call me if you have any questions about it.

I would like to encourage those who may have an interest in obtaining their Master’s Degrees to apply before March 1, 2018.
