2.2 Objectives

The teaching profession requires that teachers have a solid background in one or more academic disciplines and a demonstrable mastery of the knowledge and skills associated with effective teaching. Programs in the Werklund School of Education recognize these demands and promote inquiry and life-long professional growth, as well as university-school and community collaboration that will integrate theory with practice.

Program graduates are eligible to apply for Alberta provincial teaching certification from kindergarten to grade 12.
