CREDIT POINTS 60

Course Co-ordinator: Mrs A Valyo

Pre-requisite(s): Students require to have successfully completed all Year 1 and Year 2 compulsory and elective BEd courses, securing 240 SCOTCAT credit points.

Continuing to develop the concept of effective learning and teaching from years 1 & 2 of their studies this course will engage students in investigation of curricular contexts, exploring both discrete disciplinary contexts, (ie. Mathematics), and interdisciplinary studies across the school curriculum, (ie. Health and Well-Being, R.M.E. & Expressive Arts). Connections will be made to facilitate the application of knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes to professional practice. Students will design and evaluate meaningful and contextualised learning and teaching experiences, learning to apply the cyclical process of reflection, evaluation, target setting and planned action for improvement. The course will engage students in the development of effective pedagogical, enquiry and research skills. Further exploration of the processes will support student application of strategies to support pupil learning gains in the interconnected course ?Learning and Teaching: School & Community?
