About the book

The Faculty of Education at the University of Ottawa was founded in 1967.  Yet by that date, both Francophone and Anglophone teacher education had deep roots in the community.  The Ottawa Teachers’ College had opened in 1875 in a grand Victorian structure, while l’École de Pédagogie de l’Université d’Ottawa was established in 1923 in a ramshackle building students called “the chicken coop.”  Both of the teacher education colleges and graduate studies department moved into the new Lamoureaux Building in 1978.

The mission of the Faculty from the start has been to provide bilingual post-secondary education and to support the French language and culture in Canada.  Through the hard times of the 1980s to the consolidation of services in the 1990s and its development as a leading teaching and research facility after 2000, the Faculty of Education has held to its mandate.  Supported by extensive archival research, interviews and oral histories, we present a history of the first fifty years of a proud institution.
