Queens Technological Education Teacher Program Information Session November 11th

Queen's University invites our members who are skilled trades people and considering becoming Technological Education Teachers to the Technological Education Multi Session (TEMS) Program Information Session on November 11, 2020 at 3pm. This one-hour session will offer a brief overview of our new Ontario College of Teachers accredited Multi Session Program which is now well underway in its second term with 80% of the students enrolled employed with Ontario school boards!

Registration is available here: https://educ.queensu.ca/tech-multi

Backgrounder:

You asked and we listened! The TEMS Program was developed in response to the OCTE’s Technological Education Research Report (2018) as a means to address the shortcomings of a consecutive pre-service teacher education program requiring enrolled students to leave the workforce for up to two years as they pursue their education as technological educators. As outlined in the OCTE’s research report, Item 22- Teacher Training, Supply and Demand (pp.22-24), the TEMS Program aims to remove the barriers faced by many who would like to enter the teaching profession as qualified teachers of Technological Education by offering a flexible model of delivery including in-person and online programming balanced with practicum opportunities that may be completed while employed in the trades and/or employed with an Ontario school board with a Transitional Certificate of Qualification and Registration (TCoQR).

We hope you will join us on November 11th and thank you for continuing to engage and support technological educators past, present and future across the province.
