Principles and Practices
The following principles and practices govern the International SoEL program.
- A pilot program that required close internal (formative and summative) evaluations for the first three years of R & D.
- Sustained annual strategic, systematic and rigorous program-level evaluations and scholarship pertaining to its impacts in multi-national, multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary contexts.
- Utilize continuous program research to meet diverse needs and circumstances of educational leaders, to provide a state-of-the-art International SoEL Certificate Program with at least 150 hours of engagement, and which should be completed within one academic year.
- SoEL graduates who successfully complete the program of study will receive Certification. Certification is awarded through the President’s Office in conjunction with UBC’s Faculty of Education International Engagement.
- International faculty cohorts are funded with cost-recovery programs by way of invitation and administered through UBC’s Faculty of Education International Engagement.
- UBC-Vancouver faculty cohort funding is administered through UBC’s Faculty of Education PDCE Programs. UBC Educational Leadership Scholarship awards for UBC faculty members are funded through Faculty-specific contributions. UBC faculty members pay a (non-refundable) program resource fee (includes external review, Certificate Processing, handouts, and SoEL e-resource materials). Certification is awarded through the President’s Office in conjunction with UBC’s Faculty of Education International Engagement.
