All over the UBC Vancouver campus, festivities ignite to kickoff the new academic year, and within the Faculty of Education, we have an additional reason to celebrate: the Year of Teacher Education. To highlight the good work of educators, Dave interviews Dr. Wendy Carr, the new director of the Teacher Education Office (TEO), to find out what’s in store for the 2013-2014 Year of… initiative. In her interview, Wendy discusses how teachers are a powerful influence in our lives and how the Bachelor of Education program offers an exceptional education, helping teachers develop a personalized approach in the classroom and beyond. Guided by the TEO tagline “inspiring educators, inquiring into teacher education, imagining new possibilities,” the Year of Teacher Education will feature interactive panels, the Inspiring Educators Series, hashtag photo contest, lip dub video competition, and many more.
Stay tuned on the Year of Teacher Education for ways that you can join the celebration!
