About

The Human Development, Learning, and Culture (HDLC) program at University of British Columbia addresses the interface of research and practice in education, weaving together theoretical models and concepts in their application to real world educational issues.

Overview

Investigations of learning and development, including the unique contributions of culture to these processes, are applied to a wide range of contexts including classroom, afterschool, work, and technological contexts.

This work is interpreted through a variety of theoretical lenses (e.g., constructivist, cognitive, sociocultural, and social and emotional development). Students are encouraged to participate in research and teaching opportunities throughout their program.

Features

Coursework in the Human Development, Learning, and Culture (HDLC) program at University of British Columbia emphasizes three primary areas: 

  • learning and development

The key difference to the Master of Arts program is that no thesis is required for the MEd.
