Course description

This course is designed as a capstone experience in the BEd program where students are enabled to plan, act and reflect as professionals. It includes an on-campus component and a research component associated with the professional experience placement that follows. During the on-campus component, the professional identity and roles of the teacher are considered in relation to students, parents and the broader community. Research principles and methods are introduced as one strategic method of acting professionally, ethically and collegially to improve student learning and educational outcomes. During the professional experience placement that follows, the students will consult academic staff to plan, design and implement a research project directly related to their teaching at the school. In the process of completing this course students will develop and demonstrate the professional, ethical and values-based standards and competencies required of beginning teachers.
