SECTION 8: Post Baccalaureate Diploma in Education SECTION 8: Post Baccalaureate Diploma in Education Intro

The Faculty of Education offers a Post Baccalaureate Diploma in Education (PBDE) designed for teachers and other professionals.

The unique features of the PBDE program are that students can: design their own program of study and tailor it to their own areas of interest; take courses at the Faculty of Education as well as at other faculties and schools at the U of M or other approved institutions. A wide selection of courses is available through Summer Session, distance education, via the internet and summer institutes.

This program is also used for Internationally Educated Teachers who require additional coursework to meet Manitoba Teacher Certification requirements.

The PBDE is recognized by Manitoba Education for salary classification purposes. Further, the PBDE program provides the opportunity for teachers to follow courses of study leading to the school counsellor, special education and special education coordinator certificates, and to partial fulfilment of the requirements of the school administrators’ (Level 1) and principals’ (Level 2) certificates, all of which are issued by Manitoba Education. For information regarding specialist certificates, contact: Professional Certification Unit, Manitoba Education, Box 700, Russell, Manitoba, R0J 1W0; telephone toll free at: 1-800-667-2378, or 1-204-773-2998, or e-mail certification@gov.mb.ca, or web: www.edu.gov.mb.ca/k12/profcert/.

8.4 Academic Regulations

Appeal Procedures

The general university policy for appeal of assigned grades applies to the Faculty of Education. See the chapter, General Academic Regulations and Policy, of this Calendar, Appeals of Grades. Information about admission decision appeals may be found in the chapter, Admissions.

Assessment of Student Academic Performance

Academic performance is normally assessed at the completion of nine credit hours of course work and at the end of every session thereafter. A minimum grade of “C” is required for each course that is to be included in the student’s diploma program. Effective September 2011, a student must maintain a minimum Degree Grade Point Average of 2.50 to continue in the program. A student whose Degree Grade Point Average falls below 2.50 will be placed on academic suspension for two years. Reapplication is required for readmission to the program.

Attendance at Class and Debarment

Regular attendance is expected of all students in all courses. An instructor can initiate procedures to debar a student from attending classes and from final examinations where unexcused absences exceed three hours of scheduled classes in any one term. See the chapter, General Academic Regulations and Requirements, Attendance at Class and Withdrawal.

 

Continuing Students

Incompletes

See the chapter, General Academic Regulations and Requirements, Academic Evaluation. Students who are unable to complete the term work prescribed in a course may apply to the instructor prior to the end of term for consideration of a grade classification of 'incomplete.' It is understood that the student is to write the final examination if one is scheduled for the course.

Taking into account the results of the final examination, the value of the term work completed, and the extent of the incomplete term work, the instructor shall calculate the temporary grade using a zero value for incomplete work.

Normally, the following maximum extensions are allowed:

August 1 for courses terminated in April

December 1 for courses terminated in August

April 1 for courses terminated in December

If a final grade is not reported within one month of the extension deadline, the Incomplete (I) classification will be dropped and the grade will remain as awarded. The student will no longer have an opportunity to improve the grade. In no case will the satisfaction of the incomplete requirements result in a lower grade being awarded.

 

Maximum Time Limits

The maximum time allowed for completing the PBDE is nine years. In addition, a student will not be permitted to count toward the diploma any course completed more than nine years prior to the completion date of the diploma. Students will be permitted to retake and use as PBDE credit Education courses beyond the nine years provided they have not been previously used elsewhere for credit toward a degree or diploma program. Courses from other faculties will need to be dealt with on an individual basis.

Repeating a Course

Courses for which a grade of “F” or “D” is obtained, must be repeated or replaced; however, courses in which a grade of “C” or higher is obtained may only be repeated with the consent of the Associate Dean, PBDE Program. Courses may be repeated once. When a course is repeated, the last grade achieved will be used in calculating the Degree Grade Point Average.

Supplemental Examinations

Supplemental examinations are not permitted in education courses.

Voluntary Withdrawals

See the chapter, General Academic Regulations and Requirements.

Authorized Withdrawals (AWs) may be permitted on medical or compassionate grounds, subject to satisfactory documentation. Students must contact an Education Student Advisor to initiate an authorized withdrawal.
