See you there!
P.S. You still have two weeks to get the AGES Feedback Survey done- it’s up until March 15. Find it just below this post!
We are looking for input from graduate students in the Faculty of Education in order to get a sense of the needs or concerns they would like to see addressed in order to improve the overall grad experience. In order to get a sense of students’ general satisfaction with their individual programs, we have constructed a little survey which is embedded in this webpage directly below. All survey respondents will remain anonymous. Your participation is greatly appreciated.
Stay tuned for the Grad Survey. We want your feedback. The online survey will be posted through survey monkey early next week. You have about a month to give us your input. Think about what’s working for you as an education grad student and what could be improved. Thank you in advance for completing it!
For several years, the University of Victoria and University of British Columbia have alternated hosting a graduate conference in Language and Literacy Education. This year UBC’s Department of Language and Literacy Education is proud to be hosting this day-long event featuring keynote speaker Kathleen Gallagher, PhD (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education University of Toronto). Graduate students from UBC, UVic and SFU are invited and encouraged to submit proposals during the Call for Papers.
