Centre for Academic Development (CAD)
The Centre for Academic Development (CAD) of the Faculty of Education of Laurentian University provides additional qualifications (AQ) and additional basic qualification (ABQ) courses of the highest professional quality. All AQ and ABQ courses reflect the Ontario College of Teachers' Standards of Practice for the teaching profession.
The ABQ courses allow teachers to add another division or subject area to what they are already qualified to teach.
The AQ courses allow members to expand their knowledge and skills within the divisions and subjects in which they are already qualified or to acquire knowledge in new subject areas. Specialist courses allow teachers to focus on leadership and curriculum development.
