TRU School of Education introduces new degree program

July 10, 2018

Kamloops This Week reports that Thompson Rivers University has introduced a new degree program for teachers of math and science. According to Ted Howe, an associate professor at the School of Education, the 12-month program emphasizes a “holistic style” education based on experiential, project-based, and inquiry-centred teaching. One of the previously completed projects involved teachers at a local middle school who worked with TRU scientists to study water. Instructor Carol Rees says that the program will make teachers aware of the potential collaborations available with TRU faculty and community organizations. Kamloops This Week
