Alumni Stay Connected
Each semester, the Faculty of Education hosts a “Get-Together” for Alumni who are able to attend. The first session was held in October 2008; the second in April 2009. The format for each meeting included time for attendees to socialize and get caught up, as well as a professional development component aimed to enhance their professional skills and understandings. The October PD session focused on behaviour issues in the classroom, while the April one had sessions on Occasional Teaching, English Language Learners, and Social Justice. We also keep in touch via regular emails and an alumni page on our website. Not only do we make every attempt to keep our graduates informed as to job and learning opportunities, but they keep us up-dated on their teaching assignments and locations. By establishing an organizing committee comprised of representatives from both our alumni and faculty, we hope to be able to continue to ensure that we are responsive to the needs and interests of our graduates.
