Capstone Showcase 2017


The capstone showcase event highlighted the inquiry projects of graduating teacher candidates undertaken during their final practicum. These projects represent rich reflection upon their professional practice.

Some engaged in professional inquiries on topics such as:

  • Assessment
  • Teacher reflection
  • Collaboration
  • Student Engagement
  • Creativity



Others engaged in curricular inquiries that closely examined student learning through rich learning experiences including:

  • Connection (Social Studies)
  • Arts integration
  • Indigenous Education
  • Math games for engagement

Guests included mentor teachers, principals, school board recruiters, alumni, family members and university faculty. Guests were inspired by the creativity and depth of the work. The evening culminated with the distribution of important letters - the dean's attestation recommending them for a teaching certificate. Congratulations to all 64 new teachers!
