Students will take this course in their second year of the MA CSE program, and will either directly implement or facilitate a professional learning cycle in authentic contexts of practice to complete a professional practice project. The course is grounded in two of the Ontario College of Teachers Standards of Practice: Ongoing Professional Learning and Leadership in Learning Communities. Students in their internship term (approximately half the students in the class) will gain experience as "activators" of their own continuous professional learning processes as they work to improve their practice as beginning teachers, while students in their academic term (approximately half the students in the class) will develop skills as "critical friends" who actively create the conditions for the impactful professional learning of others.
Successful completion of Year 1 MA CSE program.
