Graduate Diploma in Education
The Graduate Diploma in Advanced Professional Studies in Education (GDE) is designed for teachers, in collaboration with BC school districts, and whose primary focus is school-based practice. It provides the opportunity for teachers and teachers on call (TOC's) to engage in focused, sustained, reflective inquiry into their practice within a 2-year cohort model. The Graduate Diploma in Education offered by Field Programs in the Faculty of Education can also be used for TQS Category Advancement.
