Education Learning Communities

Learning Community

A Learning Community is a group of students who share common academic goals and interests – like becoming a teacher and working with children or youth. In an Education Learning Community you will get to know a small group of other Education students who will be taking some of the same courses as you while preparing to one day become educators. 

Education Learning Communities are designed specifically to support student transitions to USask, the College of Education, and the teaching profession by providing opportunities for students to meet to:

  • discover their passion for teaching and learning
  • make connections with classmates and future colleagues
  • study and discuss ideas together
  • collaborate to develop academic, personal, and professional skills

Education Peer Mentors

Education Learning Communities are led by upper-year Peer Mentors who are trained to help new students become successful in university classes and university life; to mentor students as they grow personally and advance intellectually; and, to establish lifelong friendships and a love of learning.

Term 1 (Sept - Dec) and Term 2 (Jan - Apr) 

Register for a Learning Community

To meet degree requirements, all direct entry Education students are expected to register for an Education Learning Community in Terms 1 and 2 for the 2021-2022 academic year.
