The online Graduate Diploma in Mathematics Education (oGDME) is a direct entry program offered to a special cohort of students. The online model is designed for practicing teachers, administrators, or members of the community who are involved in developing mathematical literacies and whose work schedule or long commute prevent them from attending classes on campus. oGDME offers students an in-depth study of research and practice in Mathematics Education. All coursework is available online and provides enriched mathematical experiences in content and pedagogy across curricular divisions.
The online Graduate Diploma is a 15-credit stand-alone program consisting of five courses that focus on:
- Promoting appreciation for research informed practice
- Fostering culture of teaching mathematics for understanding
- Engaging in hands-on learning of research design
- Conducting small, independently chosen, research projects
- Integrating emerging technologies in teaching and learning
Throughout the program students will engage in various learning activities, discussions, and hands-on research projects. They will collaborate with each other and work closely with our experienced faculty.
Online Program Model:
- One online course is delivered each term;
- Students participate as a cohort on a part-time basis
[Please note that the Graduate Diploma in Mathematics Education is also offered in a traditional (face-to-face) format at the Keele Street campus as a stand-alone diploma or concurrently with an MEd or PhD in Education.]
