Welcome from the Dean
I am delighted that you are pursuing a career as a professional educator. You have chosen a profession that makes a positive difference in the world. At the Mount, we are committed to best practices that promote teaching, research and learning. I believe that teaching excellence is grounded in the nature of the relationships that exist between educator and learner. I ask that you embrace the opportunities that flow from a commitment to ideals of service, outreach and collaborative community teaching and learning. Our Bachelor, Graduate and Doctoral programs offer many opportunities for professional growth in a variety of educational settings. You will be guided by experienced professors as you develop strategies to meet the diverse needs of learners. Our graduates go on to apply their knowledge and skills in a variety of educational and community settings, both here and abroad, in classrooms, board rooms, non-profit organizations and businesses.
As Dean, I support the Association of Canadian Deans (ACDE) commitment to pan-Canadian leadership in professional and teacher education, educational research, and policy in universities. Since 2005, ACDE has developed several Accords to address issues of importance in educational policy and practice across the country. I invite you to read through these publications: ACDE General Accord; Initial Teacher Education; Indigenous Education; Research in Education; Early Learning & Early Childhood Education; and Internationalization of Education.
The Mount's Faculty of Education looks forward to playing a role in your success. I invite you to explore our website or visit us in person.
