New Education curriculum approved
UBC's Senate and Board of Governors
have approved a new curriculum in the Faculty
of Education to take effect in September, 1987.
The new program requires prospective
elementary and secondary school teachers to
take at least five years of university-level
studies. The curriculum was developed over
the past eight years by a Faculty of Education
curriculum committee.
The main features of the new program are:
* Elementary school teachers will require
three years of university studies, including
background in elementary school curriculum
subjects, followed by two years of study and
practicum in the Faculty of Education.
This program includes an extended
teaching practicum, a full school term in length,
in the fall of the second year in education.
Successful candidates will be awarded the
Bachelor of Education degree and a
professional teaching certificate.
* Prospective secondary school teachers
will be admitted to the Faculty of Education
after they have completed a bachelor's degree
with appropriate subject-matter preparation in
one or, preferably, two teaching subjects.
The program for secondary teachers
consists of a full calendar year (September
through August) of courses and school
experiences, including an extended teaching
practicum during the winter. Successful
candidates will be awarded a professional
teaching certificate in August and a Bachelor of
Education degree following a further summer
session of studies.
* All programs include increased emphasis
on classroom management, communication
skills, special education and instructional
* The new curriculum includes an optional
special education program for both elementary
and secondary teachers. Multicultural, French
immersion and other specialty programs will
continue to be offered under the new
* The Native Indian Teacher Education
Program (NITEP) will become an integrated,
five-year elementary teacher preparation
program offered in cooperation with regional
colleges in years one and two and including all
features and requirements of the basic
elementary teaching program.
Dr. Murray Elliott, associate dean of
Education and chairman of the faculty's
curriculum committee, said the new degree
program reflects contemporary trends in
teacher education. It also addresses problems
highlighted in "Lef s Talk About Schools," a
provincial-government study of public and
teacher perceptions of schooling in B.C.
"One important feature of the program is its
response to the provincial government's policy
of mainstreaming," says Dr. Elliot. "Under this
policy students with mild learning handicaps
are integrated into regular classrooms. All
graduates of our program will be prepared to
identify and deal with this situation."
The new curriculum represents a significant
change from existing programs leading to the
Bachelor of Education degree.
UBC expands defence studies
UBC is expanding military and strategic
studies' teaching and research as the result of
a five-year, $450,000 grant awarded by the
federal Department of National Defence.
Part of the grant will be used to pay the
salary of Dr. Douglas A. Ross, an expert in the
areas of arms control, Canadian defence and
foreign policy and Asia-Pacific security. Dr.
Ross has been appointed an associate
professor in the UBC Political Science
Department, where he will teach graduate and
undergraduate courses in strategic studies as
well as a new course in Canadian foreign
The remainder of the grant will be used to
support research studies and graduate
Dr. Ross will also continue an association
with the UBC Institute of International Relations
(IIR), where he has been a post-doctoral
research fellow and research associate since
He is currently co-director, with Prof. Frank
Langdon, of the Pacific Security Project, a
study of the defense roles of Pacific Rim
countries that are not super powers, including
Canada, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.
The study is funded as part of a major IIR
research project, "Canada and International
Regulatory and Management Regimes,"
supported by a $300,000 grant from the
Donner Canadian Foundation.
Prof. Mark Zacher said the Department of
National Defence had fostered institute
research in the past, giving grants to support
post-doctoral fellows.
Dr. Ross is the author of a book regarded
as one of the best published recently on
Canadian foreign policy (In the Interests of
Peace, Canada and Vietnam, 1954-197C He
has also co-authored books both on the roles
of China and Japan as emerging global
powers and also on Canadian nuclear export
He has written numerous journal articles on
topics such as Canada and "Star Wars,"
Canadian foreign policy and the Pacific Rim
and the evolution of American and Canadian
strategic policy perspectives.
Dr. Ross was educated at the University of
Toronto, where he was awarded the Doctor of
Philosophy in 1979 in international politics and
Canadian foreign policy. He taught at Trent
University in Ontario before coming to B.C.
UBC's Institute of International Relations is
part of the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Its
major purpose is to organize large-scale
research projects, especially those of a multi-
disciplinary character, and to promote
international studies at the University. For the
most part, the institute draws upon staff from
the Faculties of Arts, Law and Commerce and
Business Administration,
