The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed January 24 as the International Day of Education, in celebration of the role of education for peace and development. The theme of the 3rd International Day of Education is ‘Recover and Revitalize Education for the COVID-19 Generation’. Now is the time to power education by stepping up collaboration and international solidarity to place education and lifelong learning at the center of the recovery.
The Green Labs Expansion is a $50,000 envelope of SPF funding to assist labs on McGill campuses to adopt sustainable best practices learned from previous Sustainability Projects Fund projects. Approved funding will be available to teams for one year to assist them in creating a proof of concept to secure long-term funding for these practices.
Congratulations to Dr. Jenna Gibbs, Assistant Professor in McGill's Kinesiology and Physical Education (KPE) Department, who was recently awarded a Drummond Foundation Research Grant supported by the Drummond Foundation and the John R. McConnell Foundation.
His research title is: "Examining Breathing Patterns during Common on-ice Movement Patterns in Male Hockey Goaltenders".
Louis-Philip Guindon is completing his MSc in Exercise Physiology and plays goaltender for McGill University Men’s Ice Hockey Team.
At the start of 2020, a new funding opportunity was developed by the Dean’s Office to recruit high-caliber PhD students. Each Department was granted a multi-year fellowship package, each totaling $55,000, to be awarded to incoming doctoral students.

To teachers, with love: Elementary school teacher Mary Marsh leaves a historic bequest for Education students after a lifetime of giving
They may not know it yet, but McGill’s student teachers are getting a big boost from a kindred spirit.
The late Mary Marsh, DipEd’42, a Grade 1 teacher at Rosedale School in Montreal for most of her career, has left more than $4.8 million in her will to support students in the Faculty of Education through a suite of awards – an investment that couldn’t have come at a better time for a profession deeply marked by the pandemic.
New CoLab spurs innovations in pedagogy: Valuable support from The Molson Foundation will bolster a novel approach to education
A new partnership between McGill’s Faculty of Education and Trafalgar School for Girls – known as the CoLab – aims to advance collaborative research that will address the evolving needs of both educators and students. Unlike traditional laboratory schools at Oxford, Columbia, UCLA and the University of Chicago, which operate as an adjunct to a university, this new venture will be a true partnership, the first of its kind in Canada.

For fourth-year B.Ed. students approaching the end of their programs, knowing what path to take after graduation can be challenging. Whereas many B.Ed. grads are eager to pursue careers in teaching, training, pedagogy, youth programming, or other employment sectors, others may not feel ready to join the job market just yet. Some students may want to broaden their knowledge and skillsets, become more specialized, or expand their career opportunities.
