2020/21 Winter Session Registration Guide – NITEP Secondary Year 4

Registration opens May 12, 2020 at 8:30 a.m.

In order to be promoted to the Professional Year (Year 4), teacher candidates must have completed all academic requirements for the teachable subjects and obtained a 65% average on the required senior courses (300 and 400 levels) for each teaching field. All education placements must be completed.

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

The 2020/21 winter session course schedule will be published on April 30, 2020. Course schedules are subject to change before the start of the academic year.

Given the current situation with COVID-19, and to ensure continuity of the BEd program for 2020/21, we are preparing for multiple contingencies including face-to-face classes and the potential for online learning. We will be following the directives of the University and the Faculty of Education.

This guide is to complement the NITEP Handbook and registration instructions that you received from advising.

International Baccalaureate Options

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 31 – September 4, 2020. 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 2021, 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 May 15, 2020. A link to the online application will be emailed to teacher candidates on May 15, 2020. Interested teacher candidates must complete the online application form no later than May 31, 2020.

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).
