Welcome

Marny Point, MET Alumna, offers this welcome on behalf of the Musqueam people.


Welcome to the Master of Educational Technology Program (MET) at the University of British Columbia. MET is the longest-running fully online graduate program at the University of British Columbia. Since the degree program was launched in 2002, more than 1450 individuals have enrolled in the UBC MET degree program, and more than 320 in a MET certificate program. Many of our graduates are now leaders in their respective fields. In joining the MET program, you will become a member of a vibrant community of over 300 current students and hundreds of active alumni from around the globe and from a range of professional backgrounds, including publishing, instructional design, business, higher education, K-12 education, healthcare, and the military.

In welcoming you to the MET online program, I wish to acknowledge that MET offices and servers are hosted on the UBC Vancouver campus, and that the land on which this campus is situated is the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil- Waututh) Nations. As guests on this beautiful land, MET faculty and staff consider it a privilege to work and learn here.

We hope you will thrive in the MET community during your studies and that you will continue to engage with MET through our alumni channels long after your program is complete.

Teresa M. Dobson, MET Director
