The Health and Physical Education MEd Cohort is designed for teachers who want to complete their degree part-time in a structured program.  The program consists of 10 courses (HPE focused) and a capping presentation taken over a two year period. Courses are taught by leaders in the field and are delivered both face to face and online.

PHASE Collaboration

University of Alberta is collaborating with PHASE to promote a cohort for international educators. If there is enough interest the face to face component of the program will be hosted somewhere in Asia and potentially integrate some content with the PHASE conference.
