Laurier Master of Education: Thoughts on our final Capstone class

Last night was the final night for our current cohort of students in the Capstone course of our Master of Education. The Capstone course is the culminating course in the M.Ed. and provides an opportunity for students to share evidence of how they have met the M.Ed. program goals. In our final two classes, the course participants have shared their journey of learning over the past three years.

I have sat in awe over the past two weeks as the participants have shared their artifacts and the stories that surround them. I am truly amazed by the reflection, courage, innovation, and deep learning that these participants have demonstrated.

Some participants chose to submit their portfolio of learning through a hard copy format while others chose digital means. The following links provide an opportunity to explore the learning that these M.Ed. participants have experienced:

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.
