Module/Course Description

Course Title: Continuous Teaching Practice I

Course Code: UU-CTP(G)-1000-MW

Programme: Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) in Primary Education

Credits: 20.00

Course Description:

The module is based upon an extended teaching practice running throughout the school year in parallel to theoretical modules that the student teacher is taking online. Studies show that such extended teaching practice results in better prepared teachers. The teaching practice is enhanced by adding field supervision and mentorship components that provide teacher candidates with a “Guided Practice Framework”. Student teachers spend a full year in a classroom, working with a cooperating teacher, and a university-affiliated Field Supervisor, who makes regular visits to meet with, support and assess the student teacher’s progress. Lesson plans, a school experience journal and video recordings of teaching are reviewed by the Field Supervisor and uploaded on to the Virtual Learning Environment to enable quality assured assessment. Due to the extended teaching practice period, student teachers will experience teaching at all phases of primary school, namely infant, junior and senior.
