Educational Leadership and Policy

Online/Hybrid Master of Education (MEd)
2016 and 2017 Cohort


The Educational Leadership and Policy Program is excited to be offering a second online/hybrid MEd Cohort that will be accessible to students throughout the province of Ontario and beyond.  The academic rigor and practical utility of this Master’s program is enhanced by a cohort approach, specifically designed for an online learning community.  Students will be engaged in exploring questions of leadership, policy, change and social diversity in schools, linking theory to practice in their own work environments. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn together with students located in a very wide variety of contexts!

Building on the success of our prior MEd Cohorts in promoting inquiry and professional growth, OISE is pleased to be offering this hybrid approach to learning again for an online community.

Program Details:
• This cohort is based in the Educational Leadership and Policy Program in the Department of Leadership, Higher and Adult Education at OISE
• Students earn a Masters of Education (MEd) degree via 10 courses
• In this part-time degree program, students take just one course a term
• This is a cohort format: students will take most courses as a group
• Program start September 2017, and ends August 2020

This switch normally takes place after the student has completed three or four courses.  Students making this switch may finish the program at a different time.
