FAQs

How is the Bachelor of Education (BEd) program different from a typical undergraduate program?

The focus of the program is not on ‘getting grades’ but on building competency as a teacher. Assignments are completed individually or in groups, and will be frequent yet shorter in length than those in other undergraduate programs. All courses will have an online component to them, which involves everything from accessing material to participating in discussion boards.

Assessment in the program is based on numerous assignments, professionalism, full engagement and participation in class. There are few, if any, tests or exams in the program and assignments are not given during the Field Experience time periods.
