In the interest of historical accuracy, I wanted to clarify
the claim made in the Sept. 5, 2002 issue of UBC Reports in

masters degrees this fall; which was first
Both are innovative and both were developed collaboratively
with partner universities in other countries. While the article
focused on the Masters of Educational Technology (MET) developed
by UBC and Tec de Monterrey in Mexico, it failed to mention
the new MEd in Adult Learning and Global Change (ALGC) that
received Senate approval at the same time as the MET and also
enrolled its first students this fall.
The ALGC program was developed collaboratively with the University
of the Western Cape in South Africa, Linköping University
in Sweden and the University of Technology, Sydney in Australia.
The cohort enrolled this fall includes 40 students from Australia,
Austria, Canada, Iceland, Mauritania, Netherlands, South Africa,
Spain, Sweden, and Thailand.
