Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Crystal Shadwell (MEd '18)

Coordinator, Strategies for Academic Success
Dean of Arts, Wilfrid Laurier University

“Exploring the MEd program through a student affairs lens has helped to deepen my understanding of the students I work with and allowed me to link theory to my practice.

The shared learning experiences I’ve had alongside a network of student service professionals has enhanced the level of service I am able to provide to students. The program effortlessly formed connections between a diversity of educational leaders, establishing an inspiring community of learners.”

Dave Shorey (MEd '14)

Associate Director, Residence Education

“There is something truly special happening in Laurier’s Faculty of Education. The faculty team developing and facilitating the Master of Education program are innovative, curious, and deeply committed to their craft. The community of learners in the Master of Education program is close and supportive, and is keen on immersing themselves in course content.

I will be forever changed by my experience in Laurier’s Master of Education program because of the rich intersection of a diverse group of learners, deeply invested faculty, rich course content, and the space to explore connection between theory and practice.

My journey through the Master of Education program was critical to my development as an administrator in higher education, allowing me to participate meaningfully in communities of practice that help to inform our practice.”

“My MEd journey allowed me to examine and embrace the concept of Educator as Researcher at many levels. The talented faculty and supportive learning environment allowed me to engage in inquiry, critical thinking and reflection while authentically connecting theory to past and present practices and experiences. A truly remarkable learning journey with an amazing cohort of learners!” 

Anneke McCabe (MEd '18)

Elementary Curriculum Leader: Arts, Social Studies, Environment, Upper Grand District School Board

“The Master of Education program at Laurier is highly engaging and supported a personal interest in learning about arts-based research within a diverse community of learners. Partnerships with educators in the program alongside the Professor's mentorship and teaching provided a foundation for discovery. Laurier has inspired a lifelong learner in me as I move into a PhD program in Education.”

Karen Klee (MEd '16)

Professor, Faculty of Human Services, Fanshawe College

"Through both course content and professor leadership, connections were immediately made between my ‘real-life’ job and research opportunities in education for people with developmental disabilities. I really had not expected to marry my school and work life with such intricacy."

Jessica Weber (MEd '15)

Teacher, Waterloo Catholic District School Board

“My journey through the MEd program provided countless opportunities to link theory with my daily practice as a classroom teacher. Themes of innovation, leadership, and inquiry propelled me forward. Relationships developed with faculty and fellow cohort members created an inspiring and enabling culture of learning.”
