Faculty of Education Decanal Message Innovatus Banner

Spring is in the air – and with that, comes a feeling of renewal and optimism which is visible in the work that is being done within our Faculty.

The last two years have been atypical due to the extraordinary hardships happening around the world, but the many challenges that we have faced together have taught us many lessons about resiliency, hope and new ways of moving forward. The ways in which we collectively approach teaching and learning have adapted to meet an ever-changing educational landscape both locally and internationally.

In this issue of ‘Innovatus,’ we share stories of projects, initiatives and activities that showcase experiential education and the many ways we are working to solve pedagogical problems and address many of the societal inequities happening in the world today. These stories also provide a snapshot of how teaching and learning in our Faculty is advancing student success in creative and meaningful ways to equip students with the knowledge and skills to create positive change in their schools and communities.
