The University of Toronto's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and Shanghai Normal University (SHNU) have signed a memorandum of agreement that will provide significant benefits to both institutions. "Internationalizing the B.Ed. program will increase opportunities for international students, educational leaders and for OISE students," says OISE's registrar. "Down the road this relationship will help OISE expand internship opportunities in China for our own students." Both institutions expect increased collaborations at the graduate level and further opportunities for teachers-in-training and school leaders in both Canada and China.
