Student Experiences: How I Prepared for my Open Graduate Defence

March 20, 2018
By: Ian Matheson

Knowing that you are going to be examined in front of your peers is daunting. I don't know many people that would be excited by the prospect, and I'm certainly not one of them. I think I’ll always remember the tightening I had in my stomach that wouldn’t go away as the weeks became days, and the days became hours. I always knew that I was building to this, but I think I was short-sighted throughout grad school—focused on the next task directly in front of me.

Student Experiences: My PhD at Queen's Education shaped who I am today

February 26, 2018

By: Suparna Roy

An advantage was that I had done my undergraduate, B.Ed., and M.Ed. degrees all at Queen’s so when I entered the world of acronyms (i.e., EGSS, ESMHI, RBJSE), they were familiar and I was eager to get involved. My past role as a middle and high school teacher had me hooked on activities that were service-oriented and therefore I gravitated towards those types of experiences during my PhD Of course, other acronyms like TA’ing, GTF’ing, and RA’ing have also livened things up. To me, these acronyms represent networks of people (staff, students, and faculty) with whom I could build friendships and a sense of community.

Student Experiences: Studying and Teaching Abroad at the BISC!

February 6, 2018
By: Maysam Abu Khreibeh

Hi there! My name is Maysam Abu Khreibeh and I am currently a second-year B.Ed. Teacher Candidate in the Intermediate/Senior Divisions studying Global Development Studies with a concentration in History and First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Studies. I had the once in a lifetime opportunity to experience learning and teaching at the Bader International Study Center (BISC), in the UK for my very first year of university. From weekly practicum experiences in many different classrooms to experiential learning opportunities and traveling adventures, the BISC taught me the true meaning of self-directed, immersive and meaningful learning which every aspiring teacher should strive to have!
