This innovative MEd cohort program will engage participants in real-world projects enmeshed in questions of learning and scholarship.

This partnership program features an Adaptive Education model, which builds a pedagogical bridge that ties the project and classroom to the community. Participants will consult on, experiment with, and co-create solutions that address problems which come to light in the course of working with the City of Vancouver on sustainability priorities.

The unique structure of this program includes a body of advisers and experts that support classroom-based research projects and instructors who act as research designers to facilitate group projects with real-world outcomes. Participants will:

  • develop a critical awareness of the concepts of education and sustainability, how they relate, and their implications;
  • demonstrate their learning throughout the program, thereby increasing their employability;
  • build their abilities to work with governments and other partners by collaborating with city staff on sustainability policies;
  • embody the knowledge and skills associated with community building, political engagement, social movement participation, real-world research,  design, dialogue, network building, and knowledge dissemination.
