The programme is designed to enable students become skilled, creative and knowledgeable professionals. As newly qualified teachers, graduates will be ready to handle the complex, challenging and ever-changing primary education environment. All students take mandatory education modules, school placement and spend four weeks in the Gaeltacht. Students also select from a range of specialisms in Humanities, Science and Education. A professional degree accredited by the Teaching Council This programme is recognised as a professional qualification by the Teaching Council of Ireland (www.teachingcouncil.ie). The Teaching Council is responsible for regulating the teaching profession. It reviews and accredits teacher education programmes and has set down standards which all programmes must meet. These standards are laid out in Initial Teacher Education: Criteria and Guidelines for Programme Providers. 4

7 An Chéim Baitsiléir Oideachais Programme aims The programme aims to develop graduates who: 1. are competent, professional and knowledgeable in their approach to teaching, learning and assessment; 2. become adaptive experts who continue to grow and learn throughout their careers; 3. facilitate the holistic development of children in terms of their emotional, social, personal, physical, creative, spiritual and intellectual capacities; 4. recognise and meet the needs of all learners with insight, expertise and respect; 5. become collaborative, supportive and committed members of school communities and the teaching profession; and 6. engage in ethical practice informed by a critical concern for social justice, equality and care and respect for others. Specialisms Opportunities for students to study a subject of their choice in greater depth are an important feature of the programme. Through choosing a major specialism in education, humanities, or science, and a minor specialism in education, students can pursue their interests, developing deeper knowledge and understanding, along with higher levels of skills in their chosen areas. In Year One students select three Foundations in Humanities and Science subjects. In Year Two students take a Major Specialism: this can be one of the three Foundations subjects taken in Year One or a specialism in Education. Students will continue to study this specialism in years 3 and 4. Students take a Minor Specialism in Education in years 3 and 4. 5

10 Bachelor of Education Degree Teaching Methods and Assessment Teaching Methods personal development preparing for life in the classroom teaching within a professional learning community engaging with school communities The programme is delivered mainly through seminars, lectures, workshops and tutorials, with some online learning. Students will experience small collaborative group-settings and plenary lectures. Teaching and learning occurs in face-to-face and online environments e.g. Moodle which is a simple web-based application that can be accessed from any Internet enabled computer. A wide range of teaching approaches are used including case study, problem-based learning and reflective activities to enable critical reflection and to promote knowledge integration. Students have opportunities for discussion and for sharing views and experiences. College staff model the kinds of pedagogical approaches which the programme endorses because student teachers need to experience the teaching strategy as a learner they need to experience using it, unpacking it and reconstructing their practice through the experience (Loughran, 1997, p. 65). Innovative approaches such as co-teaching, lesson study, collaborative planning and peer review promote students development as members of professional learning communities. Field trips, practical lab-work and enquiry-based learning demonstrate good practice in terms of teaching and learning. Assessment Written and, where appropriate, oral examinations are held at the end of each semester. Marks are also assigned for written/practical/tutorial work during the course. A pass in School Placement is essential for the award of the Degree. Students will experience a wide range of assessments such as school-based assessment, presentation, performance, portfolio, reflective journals, group assignments and research projects. 8

11 An Chéim Baitsiléir Oideachais Portfolio The portfolio is used to document student work throughout the degree: it is designed to help students reflect on their practice and help identify areas where they may need additional support. It also meets the Teaching Council requirement that students develop a professional portfolio during school placement. Students will be able to carry this portfolio into the workplace. Portfolio contents will include reflections on assessments and feedback during the year with a view to helping students identify their strengths and needs. It will allow students to take increasing responsibility for monitoring their own professional development. Students will get guidance on building their portfolios in the Reflection and Enquiry and Analysis of Teaching tutorials. The portfolio will be graded on a pass/fail basis at the end of each year and will contribute towards assessment in several modules. 1.2 Irish Language on the BEd Students undertake Gaeilge, a graded Irish language programme based on Level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for Languages. It is designed to develop students oral and written proficiency, and to deepen linguistic and sociolinguistic awareness and general meta-cognitive skills. Learning Portfolios are used to monitor students progress, develop reflective skills and assist in the development of greater learner autonomy. The methodology modules in language teaching for Irish, Teagasc na Gaeilge, prepare students to teach Irish as a first or second school language in primary schools. Gaeltacht Placement Students spend four weeks on Gaeltacht placements as part of the programme. Course content is aligned to and integrated with Gaeilge and Teagasc na Gaeilge modules and assessment processes. Student will be given the opportunity to practise their presentation and pedagogical skills, including the use, adaptation and production of multi-media language teaching and learning resources. Students also undertake an interactive Gaeltacht-based assignment to be submitted as part of their Language Learning Portfolio. 9

12 Bachelor of Education Degree Irish-medium Strand Students can opt into an Irish medium strand when they commence their programme. Modules delivered through Irish on this strand include: Gaeilge Major Specialism; An Ghaelscolaíocht agus Teagasc trí Ghaeilge Minor Specialism; Reflection and Analysis of Teaching tutorials; Teagasc na Gaeilge workshops; Gaeilge seminars; Gaeltacht Placement; and at least fifty per cent of curriculum courses. 1.3 School Placement: connecting theory and practice School Placement refers to the period of time spent in schools during the programme. Students have one placement in each year. It gives students the chance to apply what they have learned in college in different classes and school contexts. During time in school, students have support from a college-designated placement tutor who will both mentor and evaluate practice. Students also have support from their classroom teacher. Year 1 School Placement (SP1) Semester Two 3 weeks (9 Fridays followed by 1 full week). Preparation accumulating to 1 week Introducing students to classroom and school life Year 2 School Placement (SP2) Semester Two 4 weeks (including 1 week preparation) Observing, co planning and co-teaching with the class teacher.

14 Bachelor of Education Degree Study Abroad Options Coordinator of International Affairs: Gerry O Reilly BA MA HDipEd (NUI) PhD (Durham) Educationally Fulfilling Socially Fulfilling Study Abroad Culturally Fulfilling Students are encouraged to participate in international courses, projects, short intensive programmes in Europe and study abroad programmes in Europe and the USA, and also volunteer work in Africa. Students can gain ECTS credits for their participation in the above mentioned programmes. A listing of College partner institutions in both Europe and the USA can be viewed on the College website. European Erasmus funding is available for Irish students studying in Europe; however students must be self-funding when studying outside Europe. Irish students do not have to be fluent in a foreign language in order to study abroad as our partner institutions offer language tuition and also facilitate non-native speakers in most subject areas. Once students make application for study abroad programmes such as Erasmus, initially provisional permission is sought from their Heads of Departments based on student exam results and what is deemed to be in the students best interest before full permission to study abroad is given. Students on the BEd programme may take courses (approved by their relevant departments in St Patrick s College) at colleges abroad with whom St Patrick s College has exchange agreements. 12

15 An Chéim Baitsiléir Oideachais BEd students may study abroad for a semester during their studies and return to the College to complete their programme in the normal way. The International Office provides information and guidance for students interested in pursuing part of their BEd degree programme abroad, and continuing support whilst there.

16 Bachelor of Education Degree LEARNING TO TEACH Learning to teach is a very complex process. The Programme Learning Outcomes which list the competencies expected of you as an initial teacher education graduate give some sense of the range of skills you will develop over the course of the programme. The programme adopts a spiral approach: this means that you will engage with the same concepts several times as you go through the degree. This will give you an opportunity to deepen and clarify your understanding and to connect what you have learned in different modules. Years 1 & 2 Year 3 Year 4 FOUNDATION You will cover the basics you ll need to begin your career as a teacher. INTEGRATION You will review what you have learned and apply it to different situations. DEEPENING EXPERTISE You will consolidate your teaching skills and develop your research skills. How we see teaching We see teaching as a highly skilled and challenging task it requires expert knowledge but also the ability to apply that knowledge flexibly and to adapt it quickly to new situations. It is not a case of transferring information from one person to another, but is a much more dynamic and open-ended process where the teacher and learner work together to create new understandings. Doing this well is not easy. Teachers need to be able to handle unexpected events in the classroom and to use these imaginatively to promote learning. They need to be willing to question and change their existing beliefs and practices. We aim to give you the opportunities you need to develop these skills. 14

18 Bachelor of Education Degree Progression Pathways These five pathways are key dimensions of learning to be a teacher. Personal and Professional Identity Reflection and Enquiry Professional Knowledge Professional Practice Integration There follows a brief description of what each term means and a listing of the programme components most closely and explicitly associated with each. However, all elements of the programme education, school placement, specialisms help you develop in each of these five areas. Personal and Professional Identity What does it mean to become a teacher? Can your identity as a teacher be separated from your own personal identity? Everything you do on the programme, particularly your time on School Placement, is related in some way to how you see yourself as a student teacher. The modules listed below will explicitly help you to reflect on your idea of self and other, of your identity as a student teacher, what it means to be a professional and how that professional identity is expressed in different situations. The complex network of relationships you will find yourself in as part of a school community will also be explored. ED162: Teacher as Person ED261: Teacher as Professional Reflection and Enquiry You will become very familiar with the terms critical reflection and reflective practitioner over the course of the programme. Reflection involves thinking about your past experiences, attitudes and beliefs, in order to learn. It means becoming aware of the assumptions you make about teaching because of your prior experiences as a primary and secondary student. Critical reflection is when this deliberation is framed by a particular set of issues and involves questions about your experiences such as: Why did my lesson not work out as I expected? What could I do differently? What would it have looked like from a child s point of view? 16

19 An Chéim Baitsiléir Oideachais How to teach How children learn Professional Knowledge What to teach Reflection and enquiry is embedded in the programme from the start through: ED154: Reflection and Enquiry 1 and ED251: Reflection and Enquiry 2 which use case study, reflective activities and key questions to prompt reflection and knowledge integration. ED161: Analysis of Teaching 1 and ED263: Analysis of Teaching 2 which offer opportunities for de-briefing and reflection on school-based experiences. Your own reflections on your experiences and on course content will be a key part of in-class and on-line activities and some assignments. In Year 4 you will undertake a research project in your major or minor specialism area during final school placement. Professional Knowledge There are three key aspects to professional knowledge: knowledge of learners and their personal development in different social contexts; knowledge of subject matter and curriculum goals; knowledge of teaching (teaching subject matter, teaching diverse learners, assessment, classroom management). Most of your modules develop your skills in this area. For example, you will take modules in Teaching, Learning and Curriculum such as Mathematics Education and Literacy which focus on developing your knowledge of the subject and how to teach it to all children. 17

20 Bachelor of Education Degree Professional Practice Professional practice refers to the application of your knowledge of teaching in the school and classroom context. It is a key aspect of teacher education programmes. We will support you in coping with the complex work of teaching by helping you explicitly examine the interaction between your experiences with school placement and with other dimensions of the programme (such as course work and Gaeltacht placement.) Professional Practice is embedded in the programme from the start through: School Placement and Preparation for School Placement sessions. Year 4: school-based learning using lesson study in the specialism areas Analysis of Teaching Tutorials Assessments: portfolio, case-studies, reflective exercises Teaching Studies Integration This is the process whereby you make connections between different modules and develop a coherent vision of teaching and learning. It also entails planning and facilitating cross-curricular, integrated and holistic learning opportunities for children. Integration is embedded in the programme from the start through: School Placement Reflection and Analysis of Teaching tutorials ED112: Constructions of Childhood ED211: Systems, Change and Childhood ED311: Local and Global Citizenship ED313: A Thematic Approach to Early Years Teaching and Learning ED341: Promoting Integrated Learning in the Primary Curriculum Digital Learning, Special and Inclusive Education and Assessment for Learning will be integrated in other modules. 18

21 An Chéim Baitsiléir Oideachais COURSE CONTENT 3.1 Outline The previous section describes the pathways upon which you will develop your abilities over the course of the programme. These processes are explicitly covered in some modules, for example Personal and Professional Identity is addressed in ED162: Teacher as Person and ED261: Teacher as Professional. However, every module you undertake will help you develop your skills in these five key areas. Integration Professional Practice Personal and Professional Identity Reflection and Enquiry Professional Knowledge Module descriptions follow for your Education, Foundations, Major and Minor Specialisms. The content of each of these modules falls mainly into one of five broad areas: Children and Childhood in Diverse Contexts: These modules focus on children and their lives. You will examine how children learn, how they feel about things that happen to them, and how you can work best with them in a range of situations. Teaching, Learning and Curriculum: The underlying aim of these modules is to assist the development of your understanding of teaching and learning. This section included modules in curricular subjects and covers the primary curriculum and how best to teach it. Enabling Lifelong Learning: Modules focus on understanding how different children learn, how to assess children in a way that helps them learn, and how to use effectively technology in teaching. The purpose of these modules is to develop within you the skills required to assist children in becoming lifelong learners. Teachers, Schools and Communities in a Changing World: These modules help integrate your experiences as a learner and a student teacher with your growing knowledge of schools and of the education system. You will have opportunities to consider what it means to you to be a teacher and what is required from you as a teaching professional. In year 4, you will examine what makes schools effective, study how schools relate to their local, national and global communities and will look at how education is changing and evolving. Modules also consider how to best provide for children from a wide range of backgrounds disadvantaged, special needs, multicultural in your teaching. Developing Subject Knowledge and Leadership: Your Foundations, Major and Minor Specialism courses further develop knowledge in key areas of the curriculum. You will develop deeper expertise and the capacity for curriculum development and leadership when you graduate. 19

The module explores a range of pedagogies which meet the diverse needs of children, with particular emphasis on the integrated nature of language learning. ED131: Curriculum Art 1 2 credits [Mandatory] This module aims to enable students to develop their visual awareness, to gain an understanding of the visual arts elements and to begin acquiring the basic skills, knowledge and confidence to teach art effectively to primary school children. It consists mainly of making art/responding to workshop assignments in practical form in three of the six art strands. Looking and responding will be incorporated into each strand. Lecture/visual presentations focus on the visual world, the work of artists, the primary school child and the teaching of art. 26

29 An Chéim Baitsiléir Oideachais ED132: Drama 1 2 credits [Mandatory] This module introduces students to an approach to drama and theatre known as process drama, which is the basis of the Drama Curriculum for Irish primary schools. Process drama is an improvisational approach to theatre, which allows participants to engage with drama not only as an expressive and social art form, but also as a learning medium. This module combines practice and reflection as students initially begin to engage with the art form of drama through their own experience. Students are given opportunities to explore themes and issues of relevance in the context of a variety of contemporary and historical situations. This holistic approach also allows students to explore their own creativity and individuality. In later sessions, students will begin to use the knowledge gleaned from this experience to consider a variety of approaches to drama in the early years. These sessions will include preparation for first year school placement. ED133: Curriculum Music 2 credits [Mandatory] Part 1 Preparing to Teach Music: The first part of this module introduces students to the principles, structure and aims of the Primary Music Curriculum (NCCA, 1999) as a framework for teaching music in primary school. Through practical music activities, students develop an understanding of the eight music concepts on which the curriculum is based. They explore a range of resources and strategies to enable children to develop a sense of these concepts in the music activities of Listening (exploring sounds, responding to live and recorded music), Performing (singing songs and playing instruments) and Composing (inventing and shaping sounds). The emphasis of the module is developing and sustaining students music confidence and competence while fostering openness, creativity and playfulness in music. Part 2 Connecting Music Learning: The second part connects music learning with learning in literacy and in early childhood education. It builds on the knowledge, understanding and skill developed in Part 1. Students use their understanding of music literacy, learning in early childhood education and the curriculum framework of music concepts and strands of activity to design and plan effective music lessons for junior classes. They will become familiar with a range of strategies to engage children in representing sound in physical, gestural, 3D and 2D formats and will connect this with an understanding of children s development in literacy. The emphasis of this module is on continuing to develop and sustain students music confidence, competence and creativity while focusing on imaginative child centred music teaching that connects areas of learning. 27

30 Bachelor of Education Degree ED134: Physical Education 1: Pedagogy and Practice 2 credits [Mandatory] This module engages student teachers in thinking about physical education for the younger child. Students participate in activities and discussion to build content and subject knowledge related to physical education with an emphasis on effective teaching and learning in junior classes. This module also provides an introduction to issues relevant to teaching physical education, such as providing a balanced curriculum, teaching fundamental movement skills, using different teaching methodologies and planning physical education lessons. Exploration of particular content focuses on games, athletics, dance and gymnastics. ED141: Science Education 1 2 credits [Mandatory] This module introduces students to science education. Students will revisit their own school science, will build upon this, and will develop the use of practical work as a learning method. This module is delivered using an active-learning environment. Every workshop provides students with opportunities to engage in practical work during which they can explore and investigate natural phenomena, scientific ideas, and questions and misconceptions commonly held by children and adults. ED142: Mathematics Education 1: Engaging Student Teachers in Thinking Mathematically 2 credits [Mandatory] This module engages student teachers in mathematical problem-solving and investigations. They participate in practices and discussions to broaden and deepen their content knowledge and diagnose their own understanding of mathematics for teaching. This module also provides an introduction to theories of learning mathematics and their implications for effective teaching and learning. Emphasis is placed on approaches that are respectful of each learner s background and culture and that develop positive attitudes to mathematics. ED143: Primary History and Geography 2 credits [Mandatory] Drawing on students own experiences as learners, this module explores teaching and learning possibilities in primary geography and history. The role of enquiry in history and geography education will be explored, along with key concepts and theories relevant to each area. The module will be reflective and practical throughout, introducing students to a range of methodologies, with a particular focus on promoting historical and geographical learning in junior classrooms. These methodologies will be examined in the light of learning theories relevant to primary 28

31 An Chéim Baitsiléir Oideachais history and geography, research in primary geography and history and students own reflections on their prior experiences as learners. ED151: Digital Learning 2 credits [Mandatory] Organic in nature, this module provides technology-rich experiences and environments through which students become comfortable and effective users of various digital technologies. This enables them to make informed decisions about the use of digital tools in their learning environments and be confident in making effective use of these tools when and where appropriate. The module is characterised by an immersive workshop approach, i.e. immersion in a supportive learning environment that promotes and encourages each individual to learn about learning. Teacher-learners are at the centre and it is their experiences, needs and interests which constitute the learning process. ED152: Introduction to Teaching Pupils with Special Educational Needs 2 credits [Mandatory] This module covers key policy, legislation and historic milestones influencing special needs provision in Ireland. It provides an overview of the groups of children considered to have Special Education Needs (SEN), and highlights key implications for teaching and learning. It also helps students understand their responsibility to effectively include this group of children in their teaching, whatever the setting. ED153: Classroom Assessment 2 credits [Mandatory] Classroom assessment may be defined as the process of gathering, recording, interpreting, using and communicating information about pupils to aid decision making. This introductory module explores some aspects of assessment for learning (AfL) and assessment of learning (AoL) that a teacher may encounter in the normal course of teaching in primary schools. The module aims to ensure that students become positively disposed to assessment and that they begin to form an understanding about how it can be integrated with teaching and learning in a seamless manner. ED154: Reflection and Enquiry 1 1 credit [Mandatory] This tutorial group gives a space where students can reflect on their emerging identities as teachers and on how the experience of learning to teach is affecting them. Students will begin to recognise the influence of prior experiences on their conceptualisation of teaching and learning. Students will also examine how 29

32 Bachelor of Education Degree competing perceptions about the role of education within society inform our practice as educators. This tutorial draws on students learning and experiences across the programme for reflection and dialogue. ED161: Analysis of Teaching 1 1 credit [Mandatory] The analysis of teaching tutorials provide students with opportunities to engage in discussion and critical reflection on key aspects of good professional practice in the primary school, and to identify and explore fundamental elements of effective and inclusive teaching and learning. Through observation of teaching, online engagement, reading and discussion, students will be encouraged to set goals for their own learning and development as teachers, develop their capacities to reflect as teachers, and to develop skills and competencies that will facilitate and support them during their first school placement. ED162: Teacher as Person 2 credits [Mandatory] This module asks students to reflect on, to develop and to consider the interplay between their personal and emerging identities as teachers. It focuses on four themes: teacher as learners/learners as teachers; learner/teacher wellbeing; learner/teacher identity and learner/teacher as global citizen. ED163/ED164: School Placement 1 and Preparation for School Placement 1 7 credits [Mandatory] Students are enabled to engage with a range of introductory school-based experiences which are designed in a developmental manner. Students will spend time in a self-selected school placement during which they will undertake a series of reflective tasks linked to observation work and some initial teaching and learning activities. There is an emphasis on learning how to interact with children in small groups, on working alongside the teacher and on developing communication and presentation skills, in addition to getting a sense of what it is to be a professional and a member of a school community. School placement modules are closely linked to the taught BEd programme, to Aistear, and to tutorial work in the areas of reflective practices and analysis of teaching. Placement details: Semester 2 3 weeks (9 individual days throughout the semester followed by a continuous block week) Self-selected placement: Infants 2nd Class (or combination of classes in this range, i.e. multigrade) 30

33 An Chéim Baitsiléir Oideachais Year 2 ED211: Systems, Change and Childhood 2 credits [Mandatory] This interdisciplinary module draws on historical, philosophical and psychological perspectives on systems, change and childhood. Students will be equipped with an emerging understanding of children s development from a psychological perspective and will engage with systemic responses to individual difference. In addition, students will focus on change and reform in Irish education from a historical perspective and will examine understandings of childhood and identity that emerge in the modern period and continue to influence change within a global educational context. ED212: Social, Personal and Health Education 2 credits [Mandatory] SPHE provides particular opportunities to foster the personal development, health and well-being of the individual child, to help him/her to create and maintain supportive relationships and become an active and responsible citizen in society (SPHE Curriculum, 1999: 2). SPHE is particularly relevant for some children with special educational needs (for example, social, emotional or behavioural), and may form part of recommendations in an individual education plan (IEP). Building on students prior experiences, concepts and themes are explored experientially to allow students to gain insights into how they learn best themselves in SPHE and the implications for teaching SPHE with primary school children. Examples of themes include life skills (such as decision-making, personal safety), personal development (e.g. dealing with feelings), inclusion, sexuality education, citizenship and democracy. ED213: Ethics and Education: An Introduction 2 credits [Mandatory] This module prepares students to teach curriculum ethics in all primary schools. It examines the ethical dimensions of teaching and learning and helps students understand the importance of ethics to the well-being of children and society. It enables students to use philosophical approaches with children which support the development of critical thinking about values and ethics. As an internationally agreed code of values common to diverse traditions, beliefs and systems of governance, the international human rights framework is applied to educational contexts and its potential to inform practice critiqued. The module draws on exemplar curricula in ethical education from national and international contexts, including the Learn Together curriculum of Educate Together schools in Ireland and the Education about Religion, Beliefs and Ethics curriculum which is currently under development by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment and which will form part of the curriculum for all schools. 31
