Education - Professional Development
In 1974, The Ministry of Education assigned the training of teachers for English schools in Ontario to the Faculty of Education of the University of Ottawa. Since that time, the Faculty of Education has provided professional development courses for teachers.
In 1997, the responsibilities of the Ministry of Education and Training of Ontario were transferred to the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT).
Most courses are offered on campus and /or online. However, at the request of teachers or school boards, courses may be provided off-campus.
All the courses offered have been accredited by OCT and therefore, when a teacher takes a course, it is registered on her or his OCT card. Also, the courses are credit courses that are recognized by the University.
The Calendar gives information regarding the courses and a brief description of each one.
The Registration Guide is available online at:
