Programs in Cross-Faculty Inquiry in Education draw faculty and students together in graduate programs, courses, lectures, workshops, and other interactive venues to address educational issues from inter- and transdisciplinary perspectives.
Cross-Faculty Inquiry program
The Cross Faculty Inquiry (CFI) in Education program(s) resides in the Office of Graduate Programs & Research and draws faculty and students together, in graduate programs, courses, lectures, workshops and other interactive venues, to address educational issues on topics of common concern from inter and trans disciplinary perspectives. CFI seeks to drive intellectual and social innovation through nurturance of trans disciplinary scholarship in Education. CFI thus serves as both an active academic program within the Faculty of Education that provides graduate programs and courses, and in so doing, contributes to the development of knowledge advances across multiple fields of inquiry in Education, as well as an incubator space for the development of cross-faculty initiatives and collaborative inquiry.
Program Admission (MEd)
The MEd in Cross Faculty Inquiry program with its focus on the urban learner, is delivered in a cohort model with intake of students every two years. The Urban Learner cohort is offered in collaboration with the Vancouver Elementary School Teachers Association (VESTA).
Program of Study (MEd)
The UBC Urban Learner MEd program has been developed to further an understanding of challenges and achievements in urban education. It draws from, and builds upon the expertise and rich experiences of school teachers and other education practitioners working in urban school environments. While appreciating and extending the rigor of inquiry in urban education, the program challenges past stereotypes of urban ‘problems’ and languages of ‘risk’ and places the notion of Caring Cosmopolitanism and the institutions of Education at the heart of the revival of urban schools, networked publics, communities, and landscapes. The cosmopolitan vision presented in this program invites an ethical and reflexive outlook of care of self and the Other, underpinned by a grasp of the complex and multidimensional social and political realities, and embodied and technological social networks, in which they practice, live, and act.
