Master of Arts in Teaching Conceptual Framework

Our conceptual framework guides our program to help you become a top-notch teacher.

Teachers are decision-makers who employ their talents, knowledge and skills to:

  • Combine content and pedagogical knowledge and tools of inquiry to develop meaningful and accessible learning progressions. 
  • Create inclusive learning environments where educators and learners work together to construct meaningful learning.
  • Construct high quality assessments to inform practice and provide meaningful feedback to learners.
  • Collaborate and communicate with learners, P-12 educators and community members to create a community of practice.
  • Critically reflect on the process of teaching and learning to promote insight and action.
  • Cause positive change through leadership and advocacy.
