In the School of Public Health Sciences, your professors collaborate with organizations like Health Canada, the Canadian Cancer Society and the World Health Organization.
These partnerships play a key role in providing students with an authentic learning environment in which to develop strong professional skills.
Because learning extends beyond the classroom, the School offers rich experiential education opportunities, including:
- Waterloo's world renowned co-operative education program
- An experiential education certificate program (EDGE) for non-co-op students
- Fully online and blended professional Master’s programs with a practicum course component
Supporting teaching excellence
Elena Neiterman, the school's Teaching Mentor, supports and encourages teaching excellence and best practices to improve the depth, effectiveness and efficiency of student learning.
The Teaching Mentor acts as a knowledge broker by working closely with the Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE) and Centre for Extended Learning (CEL) to share expertise and resources with School of Public Health Sciences instructors. The Faculty's Teaching Mentors develop and foster a community of practice where faculty can share knowledge and experiences to enhance teaching success.
