A Message From Our Dean
Welcome to the School of Education and Professional Learning.
We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory of the Mississauga Anishinaabeg. We offer our gratitude to First Peoples for their care for, and teachings about, our earth and our relations. May we honour those teachings.
Trent offers a unique suite of programs in the School of Education from undergraduate education stream programming to Bachelor of Education options, Additional Qualifications, and a Masters in Educational Studies. Our guiding principles of social justice, ecologically sustainable practices, Indigenous Knowledge infusion and content excellence form the core of our theory, practice and pedagogy. We care about our students, and insist on high quality engaging programs and experiential learning through community outreach, placements and practicum opportunities.
The School of Education is an incredibly active program that continually looks for new ways to engage students in highly collaborative settings that provide the necessary tools and support for students entering a competitive education market. As we move through the 2020/2021 academic year, we are challenged to maintain this whilst working in different ways. We are confident that together we can learn, challenge ourselves and develop further as educators. Knowing this, our students also walk away with a breadth of knowledge and experiences that stretch beyond the classroom, that can be utilized in a variety of education-related fields.
Please take a closer look at the videos and information available on this website and, when it’s safe to do so, come visit us!
