Who Should Apply?

The MEd (EL) was specifically created to support Alberta teachers, educational consultants, learning coaches, and school administrators who desire to further their professional learning.

We believe engaging in deeper conversations, study, and research in the broad issues of school leadership will help teachers and school administrators improve their own teaching and student learning at their own school sites.

The objective is to create well-educated school leaders (both teachers and administrators) whose thinking is current and informed by research, and whose practice and pedagogy will improve educational practice throughout the school community – especially aiding student learning.  The program’s goal is to engage the work of improving education for all stakeholders.
