The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto (OISE/UT) is a teachers' college in Toronto, Ontario.
OISE/UT traces its origins to the founding of the Provincial Normal School in 1847. The Normal School evolved into the Toronto Teacher's College, which merged into the Faculty of Education in the University of Toronto in 1979.
The current OISE/UT institution was founded in 1996 as a merger of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and the Faculty of Education in the University of Toronto (which from 1920 to 1972 was known as the Ontario College of Education, U of T). In 1951, the Ontario College of Education offered the first adult education graduate course in Canada. FEUT was the preservice teacher's college offering first professional degrees in teaching. OISE was the graduate and research institution. OISE was a freestanding public degree-granting school before the merger. In 1965, the OISE introduced a masters and doctoral program in adult education. In 1967, OISE introduced the first graduate course in comparative studies in adult education, which was taught by J. R. Kidd. It is located directly above the St. George Subway station.
OISE/UT offers preservice Bachelor of Education degrees as well as graduate programmes in teaching, psychology, educational theory, history and administration, and Honours Specialist, technical education diploma, and Additional and Principal Qualification programmes. Master of Education and Doctor of Education degrees as well as Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees are available at the graduate level. Master of Teaching degrees are also offered. OISE also offers a concurrent education programme. Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree to be admitted to the consecutive BEd.
