CIDE for Teachers Candidates

Our centre provides a base for teacher candidates to expand their learning and practice in the following ways:

  • By increasing their professional knowledge of global education and of education and teaching practices in international and comparative contexts
  • By strengthening their professional practice and extending their ongoing professional learning through international teaching experiences
  • By demonstrating leadership in learning communities through their exploration and deepened understanding of comparative, international and development educational contexts

Teacher candidates can participate in the CIDEC community by: 

  • Regularly attending the CIDEC Seminar Series (see the Events page).
  • Taking a Related Studies course with a global or international focus
  • Connecting with other OISE teacher candidates engaged in global and internationally-based work within their Cohorts
  • Doing an international Internship or one with a global focus
  • Exploring options for gaining Internship experience either through work or programing with students
  • Bringing a range of globally and internationally focused perspectives into classroom teaching practice through contact with CIDE faculty working on teacher-related issues

Teacher Ed Courses

The University of Toronto's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education has announced that it is phasing out its Bachelor of Education and Diploma programs in teacher education and is becoming an all-graduate institute of teaching, learning and research.

Moving forward, teacher education will be offered through Masters-level programs. Our Master of Teaching and MA in Child Study and Education programs offer the unique opportunity to earn both a graduate degree and to be eligible for teaching certification in Ontario. We invite you to discover these teacher education programs. While sources of information used in these programs emphasize the Ontario and Canadian context, international perspectives are often infused.

Those teacher candidates wanting to deepen their understanding of international and/or global education may do so by selecting a Related Studies course that focuses explicitly on a dimension of global or international education and/or complete the Internship component of their program in an overseas placement.

Teacher Education Cohorts

Another option for teacher candidates interested in global issues is to connect with students and instructors in the various cohorts that emphasize international and global perspectives (elementary and secondary).
