Has education really changed since 1857? How will it look in 2057? All was revealed at the Faculty of Education’s commemoration of 150 years of teacher education at McGill. Opening its doors to the public, guests were invited to travel through time at the Past, Present and Future open-house exhibition.

Past: Pictures, facts and artifacts dating back before the days of Macdonald Campus carried our alumni down memory lane at the ‘History of Teacher Education at McGill’ exhibition.

Present: Guests found out about the latest developments in education presented by our professors at the ‘Gateway of the 21st Century’.

Future: Will robots and computers replace chalk-and-talk in the future? Our students dazzled the public with their vision of ‘Education in a New Era’.
