Hamnah Altaf

Teaching is one of the most rewarding professions, and I hope to influence young students and be an inspiration to them just as my teachers were to me. I feel supported by the Werklund School as it shares my values of leadership and the importance of community engagement. As an educator, it is our responsibility to be involved in our community, to encourage youth involvement and to help realize their potential.

Program Delivery

Topics are delivered face-to-face, fully online, or blended (combined face-to-face and online). Our Interdisciplinary topics run over either three (Summer, Fall, Winter) or four (Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring) terms. Delivery and schedule information is listed on each topic details page.

Notice re: Summer Residency 2021

All MEd Interdisciplinary Summer 2021 classes will be moving fully online with the exception of off-campus courses in the Niitsitapiisinni topics. There will be no on-campus Summer Residency. Please do not make any travel plans such as booking flights or accommodations. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

The Werklund School is a leader in online learning, offering robust programs and supports for students seeking alternate program delivery. Staff and faculty are committed to ensuring the quality of this learning experience will meet the needs of our students and maintain the high standards we have become known for.

Blended

Blended topics consist of our summer residency, and on campus experience held in Summer with online work completed before and/or after your time in Calgary. Fall, Winter, and Spring courses are typically held online through Desire2Learn and Zoom.

Fully Online

Fully online topics require no in-person meetings; students meet with their instructor and class through Desire2Learn and Zoom. Our online learning environment allows you to participate in live classes and complete coursework from wherever you are in the world.

Off Campus

Off campus topics take place face-to-face outside of Calgary. These Indigenous program areas offer students enriching, land-based experiences with intentional, seasonal approaches to learning and wellness.
