Course Description

This course provides further opportunity for students to apply and develop their knowledge of issues in Scottish Education and pedagogical theory, building towards transition into their induction year.   Students will critically reflect on their own practice and take full responsibility for the teaching of classes for a sustained period of time. In addition students will investigate a range of wider aspects of school life through completion of school based study tasks. Considerations for professional development will be critically examined through practitioner enquiry, supported by professional reading and reflection.
