Education

You are a lifelong learner, and you want to inspire and help others to embrace the same goal.

Your personal and professional goals for a career in education will be fully supported by faculty who offer personal attention and a strong commitment to your success. Learn and grow in teacher education programs offered in small classes, which are current and relevant and provide the practical skills you will put to work in your career.

Shape your career in education with guidance from talented faculty who are ready to share their real-world experience teaching and working in K-12 environments, and join a dynamic, interactive and innovative learning community as you begin your path to teaching.

Get started on your career in education, where you can share your love of learning, celebrate cultural diversity, guide stewardship of our planet, and value the uniqueness and potential of individuals in your future classroom or any number of education careers.

Note: Successful bachelor program completion leads to recommendation for ‘professional teacher certification’ with the Teacher Regulation Branch at the BC Ministry of Education.

"I was awarded my current position as the K-7 Coordinator at Island ConnectEd after completing the Online Learning and Teaching Diploma at VIU. I specifically chose the OLTD program because it offered the most comprehensive and well-rounded academic and practical hands-on experience required to successfully work in an Online/Blended school. OLTD is designed to provide students with the most up to date theory, perspectives, strategies, techniques, and tools necessary to become an effective online/blended learning specialist."
