Happy faces of our graduates

The happy faces of some our graduates after years of hard work. Many of the graduates photographed already have teaching jobs!  (Move your cursor over the photo below and click on the arrow to see the next photo.)

Spring 2018 Convocation

You will note that some of our students are holding two degrees! We offer select 5-year combined degrees programs in partnership with other Faculties (though it appears at least one of our students did this in 4 years–see tweets below).

We admit high school graduates to our undergraduate Education programs, and we offer After Degree (BEAD) programs for those who already have an accredited degree.

If you have credits from another accredited post-secondary degree program, we will see if they fit into your program as transfer credits.

If you have been internationally teacher educated, and need to become certified to teach in Canada, let us help you find your way back into the teaching profession.

You can now apply all year round, entering your Education program in all new terms.

Book Launch: Dissident Knowledge in Higher Education

Hot off the press, Dissident Knowledge in Higher Education, edited by Drs. Marc Spooner and James McNinch, pulls together the papers and discussions presented at the Public Engagement and the Politics of Evidence pre-symposium (2014-2015) and symposium (July, 2015) hosted by the University of Regina. Along with the preface and introduction by Marc Spooner and James McNinch, Dissident Knowledge includes a foreward by Leonardo Zeus, and chapters by Noam Chomsky, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Yvonna Lincoln, Norman Denzin, Michelle Fine, Budd Hall, Patti Lather, Marie Battiste, Eve Tuck, Sandy Grande, Rosalind Gill, Joel Westheimer, Christopher Meyers and Peter McLaren, which “delve into the effects of colonialism, neoliberalism, and audit culture on higher education” and offer “promising avenues of resistance” (University of Regina Press).

Sunday, May 27th 3:00 – 4:30 pm
Place: Booth #22, Congress Book Expo, Centre for Kinesiology, University of Regina
All our welcome

Advance Reviews:
“Fueling the current onslaught on higher education is the perfect storm of neoliberalism at its apex, totalitarianism on the rise, and enduring legacies of colonialism, white supremacy, heteropatriarchy, and imperialism. Education has never been guarded from such forces, but nor has it ever been free of contestation, and higher education in particular has long perpetuated injustice even as it seeded revolutions. Such is the searing analysis and nurturing of hope offered by an all-star collection of scholars.” – Kevin Kumashiro, author of Bad Teacher!: How Blaming Teachers Distorts the Bigger Picture

“[A] rich examination of the impact of corporatization of our universities, as well as how they can be reclaimed.” – James Turk, editor of Academic Freedom in Conflict

“This book maps the path toward a university based on ethics and justice rather than corporate needs. It reaches anyone who wants to understand the social, political, and economic trends that define our times.” – William Ayers, author of Teaching with Conscience in an Imperfect World

“The space for dissent and democratic debate is quickly shrinking both in public life and academic institutions. This volume helps readers ask critical and conscious questions about what it means to contend for truth.” – Gloria Ladson-Billings, author of The Dreamkeepers

 

Fall 2018 Internship Seminar dates to remember

In the late summer and fall, 4th-year education students participate in Internship Seminars where they will meet the teachers with whom they will be working for the fall term. The interns then go out into schools for the fall term. The number of field experiences in our education programs is a distinctive aspect of our Faculty, and a reason many choose the University of Regina for their teacher-education program.

The following are the Fall 2018 Internship Seminar Dates:

August 22 – 23 (U. of R.)

September 6 – 7 (Travelodge; Regina)

September 13 -14 (Travelodge; Regina)

September 20 – 21 (Travelodge; Regina)

September 27 – 28 (Travelodge; Regina)

(Lunch will be provided both days for all seminars)

New Indigenous Speaker Series

Whisperings of the Land is the theme for a new Indigenous Speaker’s Series towards understanding Indigenization. Indigenous people have always had a close relationship to the land. There has also been an historical disruption in land relocations, land desecration and pillaging for economic gain. Our presenters will relate to how the land speaks to them.

The first speaker will be Dr. James Daschuk, author of Clearing the Plains.

January 23, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. (noon)

Education Building, Room 210

The Indigenous Speaker Series is open to all Education faculty, staff, and students.
