This culminating project, which serves as the final assessment in this Masters of Education Program, provides an opportunity articulating, sharing, and deepening our understanding of our practice as place-conscious educators, based on our coursework, microsite inquiries, and field studies. We will share our experiences, insights and transformations with colleagues and instructors, and to bear witness to the journeys of others.   The comprehensive examinations involve two parts: one written and one oral. The two pieces can take many different forms do not need to be repetitive but rather are meant to complement each other and provide diverse mediums for developing and representing learning. Collectively, the forms chosen should enable crystallization and deepen of learning, and address the criteria for the project. There will be three readers for each comp paper (two instructors and one colleague). Each reader will review a colleague’s paper and prepare a set of questions to ask during the final presentations, which enable the presenter to clarify, extend, or develop their work. The comprehensive presentations are typically a riveting, intense, professional (sometimes deeply personal) scholarly experience that engages our minds, bodies, and souls.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University.
