Place and Nature-based Experiential Learning (Sunshine Coast) - Spring 2021
A Graduate Diploma in Advanced Professional Studies in Education (GDE) program developed in partnership with School District #46, Sunshine Coast, for educators looking to deepen their understanding of how place and nature-based learning can influence educational decisions and interactions.
Due to current Health and Safety protocols, the Spring 2021 term will be conducted online, through both synchronous and asynchronous methods. Courses will embody the program's core foundations of relationship building, inquiry and collaborative learning.
This two-year, 30-unit program of study is for teachers whose primary focus is school-based educational practice. It provides the opportunity to engage in focused, sustained reflective inquiry. Completion of the diploma allows teachers to move from TQS category 4 to TQS 5 or from category 5 to 5+.
