Teaching, Learning, and Leadership (MEd TLL)

The Teaching, Learning, Leadership (TLL) is a Master's degree program that was designed by teachers for teachers. Many of the classes are offered online, and most are also offered face-to-face so students can opt to take all of their program online (as available), or a combination of online and face-to-face.  International Students must apply for a Canadian Study Permit and abide by all IRCC and FGSR Registration Requirements for all our programs.

To maximize student flexibility and choice, the TLL program offers open 8XX level electives.  Students can select elective courses to create a "specialty", for example, opting for leadership (EDL) electives provides an in-depth experience in one particular area OR students can take a range of courses to suit their individual professional goals. Given the importance and relevancy of anti-oppressive and Indigenous education, the program template offers a suite of anti-oppressive and indigenous education classes, ensuring every student has a learning experience in this area.

The TLL program is offered in three different routes:

  • Course
  • Thesis
  • Project

TLL Program OutlinePDF

The Course route is designed so nine out of the ten courses can be taken in any order for maximum flexibility. There is one foundational course in Curriculum and Instruction (EC&I 804) and Educational Leadership (EDL 819) to provide a broad overview of these two areas. The final course is a capstone seminar class that will be a culminating experience to bring both a reflective and forward looking perspective to round out the coursework and look beyond this degree.

The Thesis route is comprised of 5 courses: a research method course, a foundational EC&I or EDL course, a course from the Anti-oppressive Ed suite of courses, two open 8xx level electives and 15 credit hours of thesis work.

The Project route is comprised of 8 courses: a research method course, a foundational EC&I or EDL course, a course from the Anti-oppressive Ed suite of courses, five open 8xx level electives and 6 credit hours of project work.
