Northern Lakes, UCalgary Werklund renew BEd transfer agreement to address teacher shortage 


Northern Lakes College and the University of Calgary Werklund School of Education have renewed their Bachelor of Education transfer agreement for another five-year term. The agreement enables NLC students to complete all of their program requirements—except for a two-week residency at the university each year—through online courses with the college. Northern Lakes Dean Dr Michelle Mithcell stated that the partnership has made a “considerable difference” in addressing the ongoing teacher shortage: “It seems the further north you go, the harder it is to recruit, so having a pool of teachers that are local is a game changer.”
