Abstract: 
Talent development through innovative graduate education is a primary focus of national and international governments and their university funding agencies, and a contested construct. This ethnographic study examines current Canadian English- and French-language graduate seminar design and teaching practices in faculties of education. A series of interconnected discernible characteristics of graduate seminar design and teaching practices are illustrated on a Cartesian plane, where the (x) axis provides a continuum from professor-led to student-led activities and the (y) axis provides a continuum from knowledge advancement to knowledge application. Implications for talent development through innovative graduate education are discussed.
