About

At the Faculty of Education, Queen's University, our undergraduate and graduate students explore and examine teaching and learning from a variety of perspectives across diverse contexts. Our diverse and inclusive community, along with our international connections, provides our students with exciting cross-cultural learning opportunities. Our graduates are ready to integrate theoretical, practical, and experiential knowledge in the understanding and resolution of professional issues. We see the beginning teacher as an active agent in the development of a socially inclusive pedagogy aimed at social justice. In our vision, the critically reflective teacher is the one who asks questions that go beyond immediate pressures of daily practice, and who has a disposition to work in collaboration with other members of the profession and with all those involved in the education and development of all learners.
