Learning & Teaching in Higher Education (LATHE) Graduate Certificate

Special Education Certificate

Why earn a LATHE graduate certificate at UVic?

Research demonstrates that over the next decade, Canadian universities are likely to continue the vigorous renewal of the professorate as current professors reach the normal age of retirement.  According to the last census, 32% of the professoriate was aged 55 and over. This demographic bulge, which is over twice the proportional size of the general labour force, will continue to work its way through universities.

The LATHE Program combines knowledge about teaching and learning across the disciplines to create a future professoriate fluent in the foundation principles of post-secondary instruction. It will challenge participants to reflect on their practical teaching activities in a scholarly way within their disciplinary context. Graduates of the LATHE program will be able to contribute to the scholarship of teaching and learning in their own fields, thus preparing them to become life-long reflective and scholarly teachers.

  • Earn this graduate certifcate concurrently with UVic graduate degree
  • Be part of a program that is focused on your future. Enroll in the 16-month, part-time, 6.0-unit Graduate Certificate in Learning & Teaching in Higher Education.
