Novus Entertainment is the second cable channel to pick up Your Education Matters, B.C.’s only TV program about education, which is produced by SFU’s education faculty and filmed by the Learning and Instructional Development Centre at the Burnaby campus.

Novus will broadcast episodes of the half-hour interview show twice a day, at 10:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., to more than 22,000 viewers. Shaw TV began airing the program five months ago. "Several people in our audience who had seen Your Education Matters elsewhere contacted us with a request to air this content," says Matthew Grant, producer of Novus Entertainment.

"We saw the SFU program as an ideal fit for our audience, which has a lively interest in issues affecting its community and a desire to increase its awareness of them."

Hosted by education dean Paul Shaker, Your Education Matters provides insight and opinion on high-profile education issues through interviews with professional educators. The program is meant to be a resource through which parents can improve their grasp of educational issues.
