The School of Education at TWU is the only program in BC that intentionally connects the educational practice of teaching and learning with the holistic richness of Christian spiritual understandings.
In each of our undergraduate and graduate programs we go beyond acquired technical expertise and expected education standards to inspire hearts and minds. Pre-service teachers and scholars are guided to the life-long exploration and development of philosophical and theological understandings of what it means to be human, to be educated, and to live well with others and the created world.
We value teaching as a highly complex and challenging vocation. It is our aim to help all our students develop reflective discernment through wisdom, humility, peace, patience, reverence, gratitude, compassion, hope, courage, faithfulness, attentiveness, and a love of beauty. These ‘virtue pathways’ are our commitment to the teaching profession.
Our program outcomes and virtue pathways can be found here.
