The window for applications to join the 2020 CPG has closed (see archived call here). Instructions for the next competition will be posted in September.

Long-Term Mobility: Student Exchange Group (SEG)


In order to promote international collaboration and to provide students with increased opportunities for developing global competencies and dynamic language skills, CANOPY has established an exchange partnership between the Faculty of Education and Arts at Nord University and the Faculty of Education Queen’s University. This long-term mobility scheme will enable teacher-education students from Norway to more fully immerse in the Canadian educational environment and to acquire an international perspective on teaching and learning that extends beyond their typical experience within local guidelines and curricula. Practicum placements, in particular, will help MAGLU students cultivate intercultural awareness, craft self-reflexive pedagogy, and assemble a broader network of colleagues and mentors.
