Educational Leadership and Policy

Online/Hybrid Master of Education (MEd)
2018 Cohort

See the poster
Application Due Date: November 15, 2017*
NOTE: It is essential that applicants to the Online/Hybrid Cohort state this interest in their Statement of Intent. 

The Educational Leadership and Policy Program is excited to be offering a third 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.

• 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
