The School of Education (Faculty of Education and Social Work) at Thompson Rivers University invites applications for sessional faculty member(s) to teach courses in the Master of Education Program, Winter 2020.

  • The successful candidate(s) will plan and deliver one or more of the following courses : Research Colloquium (EDUC 5990);
  • Writing in a Graduate Context (EDUC 5990); and Learning About Learning (EDUC 5000). These courses are part of the Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies, which prepares students for the M.

    Ed. These courses are scheduled for weekday evening delivery.

    Research Colloquium acquaints students with current educational research issues, facilitates the development of a graduate culture, and builds community among Education graduate students and faculty members.

    This course has three components : participation in the Education Research Colloquium series, participatory seminars, and lectures.

    In the colloquium series, researchers from TRU and guests from other institutions present their current research. By actively participating in the research colloquium, students become familiar with a wide variety of research studies, which are directly or indirectly relevant to educational issues.

    In the participatory seminars, students practice their critical thinking skills by leading discussions on the research colloquium presentations.

    In the lectures, students learn how to interpret research reports and critically respond to them. The lectures also acquaint students with the academic discourse and sound theory and research.

    Writing in a Graduate Context focuses on developing skills that will support students in their developing academic writing skills for writing in a graduate context.

    Through structured experiences, non-judgmental reflection, and small-group sharing & support, students have opportunities to develop understanding of their strengths and challenges as writers in a graduate context, and to work on the skills they need to succeed in an M.Ed. program.

    Learning about Learning aims to support students exploring their own perspectives on learning as well as taking a look at contemporary theories of learning developed by academics in the education field.

    At the same time the course is designed to support students in becoming more effective advanced academic learners in the field of Education.

    The course is based on the theoretical perspective that there are many ways of learning and knowing, each developing within its own particular social context.
