Department of Curriculum & Pedagogy

The Department of Curriculum & Pedagogy (EDCP) at UBC is committed to advancing research into learning and teaching in a variety of contexts and across the lifespan. In addition to addressing many of the curriculum areas represented in public education, we also focus on transdisciplinary areas of scholarly inquiry such as curriculum theory, design and evaluation, teacher education, digital media and learning technologies, curriculum and pedagogy in higher education, and learning and teaching in informal educational settings.
