Secondary (Indigenous Education Specialization) Registration Guide 2021/22 Bachelor of Education Program – Winter Session

Registration opens June 15, 2021 at 8:30 a.m.

UBC is following all British Columbia Ministry of Health protocols concerning the ongoing COVID-19 situation. Following directives from the British Columbia Ministry of Health, UBC is planning for increased on-campus activity in the 2021/22 Winter Session, including on-campus instruction. Although more information will be forthcoming, teacher candidates accepting admission offers for the 2021/22 Bachelor of Education program should be prepared to be in Vancouver/Lower Mainland to participate in face-to-face coursework and practica. Therefore, if applicable, you will need to arrange for housing and childcare in order to fulfill this part of the program. General updates are available on the UBC website at covid19.ubc.ca.

All teacher candidates in the secondary option will take the same core courses; however, the curriculum and instruction courses will be specific to the approved teachable subject(s).

Teacher candidates will register in a standard timetable first and then add course sections as indicated in the “Course Selection Instructions” tab below.

The 2021/22 winter session course schedule will be published on June 1, 2021. Course schedules are subject to change before the start of the academic year.

International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP) and Diploma Programme (IB-DP)

Secondary teacher candidates selecting these options have an interest in an international education that is concept-based, inquiry-driven and student-centered. Guided by key concepts and transdisciplinary themes, teachers create enriching, hands-on learning opportunities that promote discovery, exploration and thinking about real-world issues.

An IB elective is scheduled August 30 to September 3, 2021. Attendance is mandatory. During the year, workshops and seminars (in addition to regular BEd coursework) are provided to enhance understandings about the IB approach and facilitate links to coursework and practica. The IB elective will fulfill the 3-credit elective requirement for the secondary BEd Program (so no elective will need to be taken in Summer 2022, although one may be taken then as an additional course if desired).

There are two International Baccalaureate options offered for secondary teacher candidates:

  1. IB Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP)
    Teacher candidates in the IB Middle Years Programme will complete an additional 1 credit for their program.
  2. IB Diploma Programme (IB-DP)
    Teacher candidates in the IB Diploma Programme will complete an additional 2 credits for their program.

Please familiarize yourself with each of these options.

How to Apply

There are very limited seats available in the International Baccalaureate options.

An online application will be available starting June 18, 2021. A link to the online application will be emailed to registered teacher candidates on June 18, 2021. Interested teacher candidates must complete the online application form no later than June 30, 2021.

This is not a first-come, first-served process; selection is based on a number of variables including teachable subject/s and practicum placement location. Those applicants selected for an IB option will be notified by email as will those who were not (and will proceed with the regular secondary program based on their teachable subject/s).
