Programs offered by the Faculty of Education at UBC Okanagan are invested in the primacy of educators in the lives of their students. Together, practicing teachers and teacher candidates develop a deep care and heightened responsibility for creating learning contexts that are respectful of and responsive to all students, seeking insights, resources of communities, inspiring learners/learning across all subject matter, disciplines, interests, and contexts. The formative nature of professional knowledge is a central feature that distinguishes the UBC Okanagan teacher education programs.

Bachelor of Education

The Faculty of Education offers initial teacher education leading to the degree of Bachelor of Education. Following completion of all requirements, teacher candidates normally qualify for the BC Professional Teaching Certificate. Program pathways (Teaching Children and Teaching Adolescents) build upon the academic and experiential background of teacher candidates by developing a commitment to in-situ scholar-practitioner inquiry and an the formative nature of professional learning.

Continuing Professional Development

Opportunities for continuing professional development education are also offered through the Summer Institute in Education, Post-Baccalaureate and Graduate programs. Information on the Master of Education (M.Ed.) and the Master of Arts in Education (M.A.) programs can be found under the College of Graduate Studies.
