The Faculty of Education at Vancouver Island University has a long-standing tradition of developing & supporting best practices through partnerships with communities and the field. As well as service work and research conducted by faculty members, the VIU Faculty of Education creates opportunities for both formal and informal outreach work in our range of initial teacher education programs, graduate diploma programs, and master's programs.
Below is a sample of some of our work:

VIU Science Learning Centres, Professor Bernie Krynowsky
Hands-on science learning activity centres are created & implemented by Education students and brought to local elementary schools for an exciting day of science learning.
