1 Bachelor of Education in Education & Psychology Year One, Semester Two Course Handbook Spring 2015

2 Welcome from the Dean of Education/ Fáilte ó Déan an Oideachais Dear Student, On behalf of my colleagues I extend a warm welcome to you to the Faculty of Education at Mary Immaculate College. As the largest Education Faculty in Ireland, educating almost forty per cent of all the state-funded primary teachers, we are particularly aware of the significance of the Bed in Education & Psychology programme in developing, promoting and sustaining a high quality Irish primary education experience for all children. We are also cognisant of our special responsibility to educate teachers for the twenty-first century who share a professional belief in, and moral commitment to, working towards excellence, equity, diversity and social justice within the nation s schools and communities. As a student within the Faculty of Education you are part of a vibrant and innovative community which continues to design and develop new programmes. The BEd in Education & Psychology degree programme has been re-designed to create an attractive and exciting four-year programme which reflects the College's well-established reputation for excellence in teacher education. During Year 1 of the programme you will follow a core programme which focuses on the Student as Learner. The Faculty is also continually involved in the development of other new programmes. This academic year sees the introduction of the Professional Master of Education (Primary Teaching) which is a new two-year teaching qualification for graduates who already possess a Level 8 degree and who wish to pursue primary school teaching. We have also a new MEd in Educational Leadership and Management. Our Professional Diploma in Education (Further Education, Level 8) has been accredited by the Teaching Council, and our revised Certificate in Religious Education has been approved by the Council for Catechetics. We have also an Education Preparatory Programme for Mature Learners, which is aimed at adult learners who wish to gain access to the BEd programme. Táthar ag leanúint ar aghaidh i mbliana lenár gclár iarchéime nuálaíoch, M. Oid. san Oideachas Lán-Ghaeilge, a cuireadh ar an bhfód don chéad uair anuraidh.

In addition, a suite of postgraduate and masters programmes is available. The Faculty also provides a range of postgraduate research options and the numbers of students engaging in masters and doctoral studies by research and thesis within the Faculty continue to grow. The research work of the Centre for Research in Education and Teacher Education (CREaTE), Centre for Early-Childhood Research at Mary Immaculate College (Ceramic), the Curriculum Development Unit and the Centre for Transforming Education through Dialogue reflect the commitment of Faculty to researching aspects of curricular interest, but also issues of equity and justice within education on local, national and international levels.

An internationally recognised standard of excellence has been achieved in the areas of professional development, curriculum design and educational research. The Faculty of Education has close links with many of the primary schools in Limerick city and the wider mid-west region. These connections facilitate an on-going professional relationship between the Faculty and the schools. The Faculty is greatly facilitated by the schools and teachers who make their classes available to student teachers for school placements, a crucial aspect of Mary Immaculate College s BEd programme.

18 THE BACHELOR OF EDUCATION PROGRAMME The BEd degree is a four year programme. Graduates will receive a level 8 award consisting of 240 ECTS, which is academically accredited by the University of Limerick. Our Bachelor of Education programme is underpinned by a conceptual framework that informs what we do. As teacher educators, we seek to foster a spirit of justice and compassion in the service of others and the creation of a democratic setting wherein all have the freedom and opportunity to achieve their full potential. Along with ensuring that our graduates are academically and professionally competent, MIC seeks to imbue them with ethical, moral, social, political, religious and spiritual awareness. The BEd programme is grounded in, and as teacher educators we are committed to, the following core principles: the recognition that the child is at the centre of our vision the acknowledgement that knowledge is a fundamental component of teacher education the recognition of, and respect for, the dignity of the individual the exploration and development of teacher identity the development of critical reflection and reflective practice the appreciation and exploration of the role and contribution of the teacher to society, locally, nationally and globally the recognition, appreciation and accommodation of the impact of a diverse and constantly changing society and of diverse social and educational needs. the recognition of the pivotal contribution of educational research to teacher formation the understanding of leadership as an intrinsic component of teacher education These principles serve to inform our vision of education within the BEd programme but also within the broader framework of lifelong learning. This complementarity brings a depth and uniqueness to our programme.

19 AIMS OF THE BACHELOR OF EDUCATION PROGRAMME The BEd programme aims to develop student teachers knowledge, skills, beliefs, and values in ways that support: 1. The development of professionals who promote and maintain a strong commitment to education and teaching and to the quality of the educational experiences of their pupils based on the principles of compassion, empathy, honesty, trust, integrity, democracy, social justice and social engagement, within a strong ethic of responsibility to children, parents and community. 2. The development of professionals who will respect and value childhood and help children to unlock and realise their potential as children and as future adults. The BEd programme endeavours to recognise the uniqueness of every child with his/her own particular history, culture and life experience. It is also cognisant of the fact that the needs, interests and experiences of children are constantly changing and need also to be placed in the context of the wider society. 3. The emerging identity of students as learners, teachers, researchers and future leaders. The BEd programme encourages professionals who challenge and confront what it means to be a learner, teacher, a researcher and leader, and how collectively these understandings become embedded in the everyday realities of all those working in education. 4. The recognition of the dignity of the individual student teacher who brings her/his own unique identity to the teaching profession. The programme endeavours to affirm and support student teachers sense of identity and self-worth, whilst also appreciating the importance of working collaboratively in partnership with others (colleagues, parents and children and the wider community) based on the ideals of integrity, honesty, trust, equality and inclusion. The BEd programme emphasises the importance of building selfconfidence and self-awareness and acknowledges the significance of these attributes in the effective teacher. In this respect, the BEd programme recognises that student teachers have the right to have their voices listened to and that they have a significant contribution to make to education. Respect for the dignity of the individual presupposes a spirit and a context of democracy and inclusion. 5. The development of professionals who understand, respect, question and think critically about knowledge and who can adapt this knowledge within the complexities of their educational practice. The BEd programme assists students in gaining an in-depth understanding and appreciation of the forms of knowledge, embodied in their academic electives and educational subjects, the traditional disciplines of sociology, philosophy, psychology and history of education and importantly, the multi-faceted and interdisciplinary nature of knowledge and inquiry. The BEd programme acknowledges the importance of both subject matter knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge in the teaching process, and of the evolving nature of knowledge. 6. The development of professionals who are committed to promoting rich, flexible, creative learnercentred environments, where pupils are active agents in the learning process, and who support the general aims of primary education within the context of each individual child s social and cultural background, development, potential, learning and the multiple forms of understanding the child brings to the classroom (Teaching Council, 2007, p.25). These aims are: To enable the child to live a full life as a child and to realise his or her potential as a unique individual; To enable the child to develop as a social being through living and cooperating with others and so contribute to the good of society; To prepare the child for further education and lifelong learning (Primary School Curriculum, 1999) 7. The development of professionals who are competent, assured, creative, caring, active and participative citizens. In addition to demonstrating excellence in knowledge and skills, they will have a sense of the

20 needs of those who are vulnerable in society; they will be enabled to recognise their dignity; and they will have a profound sense of social justice. 8. The development of personal and professional qualities including creativity, enthusiasm, risk-taking, commitment and responsibility, all of which equip teachers to actively initiate, contribute to and respond positively to change in Irish society in the twenty-first century. Also, when appropriate, to act as dynamic agents of change within education at local, national and global levels. 9. The promotion of the reflective practitioner through inquiry-based critical examination and consideration of all aspects of professional practice linked to a commitment to the teacher-as-learner and sustained by continuing professional development and lifelong learning. Inquiry-based critical reflection is integral to the goal of teaching for equality and also to education that attends to excellence, diversity and community. The BEd programme seeks to develop teachers who are reflective, accomplished and enquiring professionals who have the capacity to engage fully with the complexities of education and to become key actors in shaping and leading educational change. 10. The development of professionals who challenge and confront social injustice and inequality as they see them in the class, playground and in the community, thus helping them to become agents of change. Student teachers are encouraged to engage in critique of educational and social policy with a view to determining how policy is made, implemented and changed, thus reaching a greater understanding of their role in the policy process and of how such engagement can help them to become agents of change. 11. The development of professionals who are empowered to recognise, appreciate and accommodate difference. The BEd programme provides opportunities for students to engage in a critical manner with their own attitudes and beliefs in relation to difference and inclusion; and to provide them with the language to engage in critical debate in relation to difference and to understand that the recognition of difference goes beyond mere tolerance. 12. The development of professionals who understand and recognise the pivotal contribution of educational research to teacher formation. The BEd programme emphasises the importance of an inquiry stance in teacher education and provides opportunities and structures that support student teachers in learning from researching practice and to ultimately engage in the role of teacher-as-researcher. 13. The development of professionals who recognise leadership as an intrinsic component of teacher education. The BEd programme will enable students to see the relevance of policy to their formation and also to consider their potential roles in leading policy development both locally and nationally.

21 LEARNING OUTCOMES OF THE BACHELOR OF EDUCATION PROGRAMME The programme aims are evidenced through the following learning outcomes. Each learning outcome embodies principles from the conceptual framework. On successful completion of the programme student teachers will be able to: Knowledge breadth and kind: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of ethical standards and professional behaviour of teachers and the nature and purposes of education and the education system Demonstrate subject knowledge, curriculum process and content, and professional knowledge Know-how and Skills range and selectivity Engage in critical and analytical thinking, problem-solving, reflection and self-evaluation Engage in planning, teaching, learning, assessment, classroom management and organisation for the classroom and the school as a learning organisation Competence context and role Integrate and apply knowledge skills, attitudes and values in complex and unpredictable educational settings Apply relevant principles and theories of education, in the context of the relevant curriculum/syllabus, using well-developed skills of enquiry, to inform his/her professional practice Exhibit strong interpersonal skill and a readiness to be leaders and innovators of curriculum change Competence learning to learn Demonstrate a commitment to lifelong personal and professional development and actively participate in professional learning communities Critically review the effectiveness of his/her own practice through continuous reflection on that practice Competence - insight Conceptualise teaching and learning as an evolving and challenging dynamic Articulate a commitment to and vision for the development of the uniqueness of the child in all its dimensions Know and uphold the core values and professional commitments which are set out in the Code of Professional Conduct for Teachers and to reflect on these values and commitments and the implications for his/her practice STRUCTURE OF THE BACHELOR OF EDUCATION PROGRAMME Our innovative four-year BEd programme is built on the premise of a democratic model of initial teacher education (ITE) and will enable students to examine their role as learner, teacher, researcher and leader.

22 Blending subject-specific pedagogies with modules, which interrogate contemporary issues in education, in a context of campus-based and school-based learning opportunities, students will be enabled to achieve deep insights into teaching and learning early in the programme. The entire programme consists of 55 units of study, of which 47 are pre-defined and 8 are electives chosen from a suite of electives. Year 1 comprises Part One of the Programme, while Part Two of the programme, attainment on which final QCA is based, includes Years 2, 3, and 4. The calculation of QCA is affected by the weighting that is given to each year/semester of a programme. The weighting for semesters 1-5 is 1. The weighting for semesters 6, 7, and 8 is 2.The first two years of the programme, which involve mainly core modules, provide a strong foundation in the broad range of curricular areas as well as introducing students to school placement. While 80% of the programme is comprised of core modules, the remaining 20% (eight modules), allows students to design their own course of study within the programme. Students may select to follow a Multidisciplinary BEd, which means that they select their eight electives from across the range of modules on offer, thus creating an individualised programme of study. Students must take a minimum of three electives from Liberal Arts, three electives from Education, and a further two electives from either Education or Liberal Arts. This will allow students to develop their personal interests and talents and to customise their own individual degree paths. Students transcripts will state that they have pursued a Multidisciplinary BEd programme. Alternatively, students may pursue a Specialism in either Liberal Arts or Education. This means that students will select a minimum of five modules in a given subject/area and develop a specialisation in that subject/area. These five modules may comprise of five taught modules or a combination of three taught modules and two dissertation modules. Students transcripts will identify the specialism pursued within the BEd programme, e.g. BEd with a Specialism in Media and Communication Studies or BEd with a Specialism in Physical Education. Depending on resources and student demand, not all specialisms may be available in specific years. In addition, specific departmental regulations may apply within modules and within specialism streams. The list of electives and specialisms will be open to amendment and will be renewed annually. There are a number of key defining choices which students make in consultation with their academic advisor during the programme. To ensure that students are fully advised of their potential choices and the impact of their decisions, a Student Advisor System will be established. Students will also be encouraged to seek the academic advice of Heads of Departments regarding options and to communicate with the Students Union to seek peer support. Every effort will be made to ensure that students are making informed choices throughout the programme. In essence, students have three main programme design options as illustrated in Table 1 below: Table 1. BEd Programme Design Options for Students

23 Option 1: Multidisciplinary Path A student selects eight modules from disparate areas/subjects, thus creating her/his own unique educational experience and creating a broad knowledge base for her/his future teaching career. Students must select three elective modules from Liberal Arts, three modules from Education, and choose two further modules from across the total range of modules available from both Faculties. Students must take a minimum of three elective modules from both Faculties; they may decide to take 4 from each Faculty. Alternatively, students may decide to take 5 modules from one Faculty list and 3 modules from the other Faculty list. This approach is characterised as the Multidisciplinary Path. Option 2: Liberal Arts Specialism A student selects a suite of five modules from within Liberal Arts in one subject area; normally these specialisms include five taught modules (across semesters Semester 3, 5, 6, and 8) with the exception of Music and Philosophy which provide the student with the option to take either two taught modules in Semester 8 or two dissertation modules. The student s remaining three electives are taken from the Education list of electives. The study of five consecutive modules constitutes a specialism. This approach is characterised as the Liberal Arts Specialism. Option 3: Education Specialism A student selects a suite of five modules from Education in one subject area; these may be five taught modules (across semesters Semester 5, 6, and 8) or three taught modules followed by two dissertation modules within a subject area. The student s remaining three electives are taken from the Faculty of Arts list of electives. The study of five consecutive modules constitutes a specialism. This approach is characterised as the Education Specialism.

Déanfar é seo chun tacú leis an bpróiseas athmhachnamhach agus chun go mbeidh ar a gcumas na limistéir maidir le hinniúlacht sa Ghaeilge agus maidir le teagasc na Gaeilge, ina mbeadh tacaíocht bhreise á lorg acu, a aithint. Trí mhéan an tumoideachais sa Ghaeilge tá sé mar aidhm ag an taithí seo na spriocanna seo a leanas a bhaint amach:

26 Feabhas a chur ar inniúlacht chumarsáide na mac léinn, i gcomhthéacs a ról sa todhchaí mar mhúinteoirí Gaeilge agus ábhair eile trí mheán na Gaeilge, chomh maith le húsáideoirí na Gaeilge mar theanga bheo i bpobal na scoile. Léirítear an inniúlacht seo trí thagairt a dhéanamh do thorthaí foghlama a aontófar roimhré. Feabhas a chur ar a gcuid eolais faoi, agus a dtuiscint ar shaol agus ar chultúr na Gaeltachta Go mbainfidh siad taitneamh as an taithí, rud a chuirfidh le grá an ábhar-mhúinteora don ngaeilge mar theanga agus lena muinín í a labhairt. Freastalóidh mic léinn ar cheardlann sa Choláiste sara gcuireann siad tús leis an tréimhse sa Ghaeltacht ar mhaithe lena bhfeasacht teanga a ardú agus tuiscint níos fearr a thabhairt dóibh faoin ngaeltacht. Le linn na tréimhse ba cheart go mbeadh 35 uair an chloig de ghníomhaíochtaí foghlama, ina mbeidh ar a laghad 20 uair an chloig caite le ranganna foirmeáilte. Beifear ag súil go ndearóidh soláthróirí na gcúrsaí pleananna teagaisc agus foghlama i gcomhar leis an gcoláiste agus go mbeidh siad ar aon dul leis an Siollabas Tríú Leibhéal. Reachtáilfear ranganna foirmeáilte ar maidin le ceardlanna um thráthnóna ina gcuirfear feabhas ar thuiscint agus ar inniúlacht teanga na mac léinn i réimsí curaclaim na bunscoile. Reachtáilfear scrúdú béil sa Ghaeilge nuair a thiocfaidh mic léinn ar ais go dtí an Coláiste agus cuirfidh an measúnú seo le gráid na mac léinn i modúil na Gaeilge. Déanfar an measúnú seo de réir Chomhchreat Tagartha na heorpa um Theangacha: Foghlaim, Teagasc agus Measúnú 2001.
