Social Emotional Well-being and Wholistic Trauma-sensitive Practices (Burnaby) - Spring 2021
This Graduate Diploma in Advanced Professional Studies in Education (GDE) program has been developed in partnership with School District #41, Burnaby, for educators interested in deepening their understanding of the contemplative and embodied basis to effective social-emotional and trauma-sensitive pedagogical practices in the classroom.
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+.
