2 Preface Dear teacher student I wish to welcome you to vocational teacher studies at Tampere University of Applied Sciences! You are embarking with your fellow teacher students on an interesting journey, which leads to your professional growth into a teacher. factors which guide your choices, actions and learning. In addition to the other teacher students and pedagogical experts, you will also have at your disposal the internet and all collaborative tools and learning environments offered by the social media which will support your learning process. As teacher, you will never be finished but instead will be growing continuously. Vocational teacher education provides you with tools for finding your own, individual teacher identity and growing as a teacher. A teacher works with their persona and developing in your work is also developing as a person. Consciously we teach what we know, unconsciously we teach who we are (Hamacheck, 1999). Participatory pedagogy relies on the principles of progressive inquiry and authentic learning, and it emphasises the importance of independent thinking and reflection. We create learning environments, which enable you to think about and expand your concepts of, learning and being a human. You can integrate your own experiences, and theoretical studies and combine that into new, which you can further refine using methods of collaborative building in your small group. You will learn to assess and analyse your own actions and the Teaching has moved from traditional classroom education towards directing the learning process. This change can be seen in the concept of a learning environment as well as in the changing roles of teacher and student. Any environment becomes a learning environment if we operate there according to pre-set learning goals. I hope that you, as a future teacher, understand the significance of participatory methods and want to actively share and develop your skills and promote collaborative activities in your own organisation.

4 INTRODUCTION Vocational teacher education engages you in learning V ocational teacher education is education aimed at teachers and future teachers of universities of applied sciences and vocational institutes. It offers the pedagogical qualifications required for vocational education as well as for general education. This education constitutes the teacher s pedagogical studies mentioned in the qualifications requirements. The changes, which have taken place in society and the working life, combined with the quick increase in the amount of information, have driven the educational system into a new situation. Vocational institutes and universities of applied sciences must prepare their students for encountering new situations, developing new ways of working and challenging practices as well as working on the limits of their own abilities. The routine application of skills and problem minimisation are not enough in teachers work anymore. Instead, teachers must also enhance and renew their skills and. Collaboration in various working environments, developing operations and creating new ideas are skills that place challenges for vocational teacher education as well. Our aim as the School of Vocational Teacher Education (TAOK) at Tampere University of Applied Sciences is to involve both our teacher students and their work communities in finding and getting inspiring learning experiences. We involve them in working alongside our staff in building our curriculum. The most important goal of both the curriculum and teaching is, after all, to support the growth of teacher students identities as teacher students and as teachers through content, methods and our whole working culture. The first chapter of this curriculum introduces vocational teacher education. This chapter offers answers to the question: What goals and contents does teacher education include? Chapter two focuses on the study modules and themes. Chapter three introduces the theoreticalbackground and principles of teacher education. Here you can find the answers to the question: Why is participatory pedagogy best suited as the pedagogical and philosophical cornerstone of teacher education? 4

5 1 Structure of teacher education 1.1 CORE COMPETENCES OF A VOCATIONAL TEACHER A ct on Vocational Teacher Training decrees the extent of vocational teacher education to be 60 credits. Vocational teacher education consists of basic studies in educational sciences, vocational pedagogical studies, practical teaching training and other studies. In TAOK vocational pedagogical studies, practical teaching training, basic studies in educational sciences and elective pedagogical studies are all closely connected to each other. Vocational teacher education supports its students growth as educational facilitators and educators as well as members of their work community and society. The cornerstone of teacher education is a conception of man, and learning, which emphasises teacher students own participation, collaborative building and assessment as well as developing new ways of working. This type of reflective, exploratory, developing and entrepreneurial way of working is called participatory pedagogy. In the core of participatory pedagogy is the support for teacher students work on their identity building. The growth into a skilled teacher is foremost about building one s identity. Identity means the various meanings a person can attach to themselves or the meanings others attach to them. Important factors in the formation of an identity: people have more than one identity identities are constantly being produced in collaboration with other people identity is formed and reformed through stories. A teacher s identity is based on their whole life experience and depicts their own image of themselves as professionals. It contains the beliefs, interests, values, aims, future goals and ideas of where they feel they belong as teachers. The identity building of a teacher student is an interactive process between the students and the communities in which they operate. During teacher education, teacher students expand and improve their abilities in assessment, facilitation, partnership, cultural awareness and wellbeing. These five core competences represent the multidimensional nature of teachers work as well as the idea of how teachers work is changing towards facilitation and communality. All competences include thinking about and justifying teachers ethical principles and values, working in an ethically responsible manner in various environments and taking responsibility of supporting their students identity building and growth into professionals of their own field of education. 5

6 Assessment competences include assessing the learning and skills of students and student groups in various learning environments and at different stages of the learning process. Teachers must also be able to assess themselves as members of various communities, student groups and interest groups. An important part of a teacher s work is also assessing and improving the working life orientation of the studies, curriculum and processes of their educational institute. Vocational teachers must also be able to acquire, process and critically assess information in various learning environments. Cultural competences mean recognising the importance of and then utilising students life situations, various working life and professional field factors as well as internationality. In order to meet the demands of student centred work, teachers must use student groups diversity in learning. Recognising, assessing and developing teachers own organisations and various learning environments also qualify as cultural competences. It is important for teachers to recognise their educational institutes role in the Finnish and international education context. Partnership competences mean working as responsible members in different communities, networks and interest groups. This means working in learning partnerships with students and student groups, in teams and groups in educational institutes and developing working life collaboration. The networked manner of working requires teachers to share their expertise also in cross-institutional collaboration. Wellbeing competences focus on the safety of learning- and working environments. Taking care of oneself, self-direction and self-development as well as taking care of others and supporting their wellbeing help in the realisation of individual and communal wellbeing. The basis for wellbeing competence is student centred design as well as recognising the factors which improve or reduce wellbeing in various working environments. Facilitation competences include the design, implementation, instruction and assessment of various processes which support the learning of students and student groups. Facilitation emphasises interaction, which supports students and student groups learning, working and problem solving skills. Teachers also need to be able to assess and develop environments which support learning and are appropriate for facilitation. Teachers also need to know the laws, regulations and instructions governing teachers work and understand how teachers can influence society. andrew pons tim gouw 6

7 1.2 AIMS AND CONTENTS OF TEACHER EDUCATION Vocational teacher education (60 credits) comprises six modules, which are further divided into themes. It also includes elective pedagogical studies. Module A: Basic Studies in Education The aim of the basic studies in educational sciences is to improve teacher students understanding of the phenomena they encounter in their work as teachers. Module B: Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century The aim of this module is to develop the teacher students skills in modern high-quality learning and teaching. Module C: Inspiring Teaching and Learning This module focuses on inspiring teaching and learning as well as personal development as a teacher. This is the first module of teaching planning. Module D: Modern Pedagogical Models The viewpoint in this module is in the examination, experimentation and renewal of current and modern pedagogical models. This is the second module of teaching planning including pedagogical models and modern technology. Module E: Teaching Online and Building Collaborative Learning Communities This module comprises themes such as planning of online facilitation, creating of online learning environments, training towards online education applications design, and working as a multi-skilled teacher. Module F: Diversity, Legislation and Development Project In this module the teacher students develop new pedagogical solutions within their own work environments taking into account diversity of students and legislation on education. SEMINARS AND LEARNING DIARY The core process of teacher education is working on one s identity. This process starts with the drafting of a personal study plan (PSP). Participatory pedagogy supports identity building through the whole process, and the teacher students will assess their own learning and abilities especially in the seminars held at the end of each module. The teacher students also plan how to use what they have learned as their studies continue. Collaboratively they find and produce viewpoints on how to approach working in various learning and working environments. In order to make their identity building and abilities more visible, the teacher students also compile a Learning Diary in order to improve both their own identities as teachers as well as communal pedagogical practices. The aim is for the teacher students to enhance and expand 7

8 their competences as teachers as well as develop their work and new pedagogical practices. TEACHING PRACTICE (14 CR) The work of a vocational teacher is educating, networking, developing, collaborating and participating in and influencing society. Being a teacher today includes much more than merely traditional classroom education. Teachers work is constantly changing and becoming more wide-ranging and diverse and therefore it is important for the teacher students to familiarise themselves with the different forms and sectors of teachers work. Teaching practice consists of creating and maintaining a teaching practice plan observing various learning situations, students, learning environments, work communities and networks acting as a teacher and a facilitator receiving feedback from an instructing teacher working in small groups seminar work. teaching practice period. They also include the practice locations and the time schedule in the plan. The teacher students can start their teaching practice after the plan has been approved by the group teacher. The teacher students gather material from their practical teaching experiences into the course blog. ELECTIVE STUDIES The elective pedagogical studies of teacher education are studies which support the teacher students identity building and offer different perspectives to pedagogy. Some elective studies are offered during the studies by TAOK. However, teacher students can also find elective studies elsewhere. Accreditation: Elective pedagogical studies may be substituted, included or accepted through the recognition and validation of prior learning (RPL). Teaching practice focuses on different aspects of a teacher s work: learning environments (Module B), teaching and facilitation (Modules C & D), networking, and online facilitation practice (Module E). At the beginning of their studies the teacher students draw up a teaching practice plan. In the plan the teacher students describe their personal goals for the gratisography victor hanacek gratisography 8

9 2 Study Modules 2.1 MODULE A: BASIC STUDIES IN EDUCATION (10 CR) T he aim of the basic studies in education is to improve the teacher students understanding of the phenomena they encounter in their work as teachers. The teacher students will be able to describe, analyse, assess and justify teachers work through educational concepts and theories. Basic studies in education consist of three themes: Human development and professional identity in learning and facilitation (4 cr), Education and learning in different work environments (3 cr), and Schools and education in society (3 cr). The methods used include on-line learning, seminars, lectures as well as individual and group work. THEME 1: HUMAN DEVELOPMENT AND PROFESSIONAL IDENTITY IN LEARNING AND FACILITATION When working as a teacher it is important to understand theories which affect human development and learning. This theme focuses on human development and how a professional identity and personality are formed. Objectives Teacher students analyse a person s growth and lifecycle through major educational psychology theories are able to describe various human development theories compare different approaches to personality can describe the formation of a personal and professional identity recognise and assess the basis for learning of diverse learners at various ages. Core questions What perspectives do educational and developmental psychology bring to a teacher s work? What should be considered when teaching and facilitating diverse people of different ages? How does a professional identity develop alongside a personal identity? How do you consider learners age, diversity and personalities in your teaching practice plan, practice lessons and observations? What is life cycle? 9

10 THEME 2: EDUCATION AND LEARNING IN DIFFERENT WORK ENVIRONMENTS The basis for a teacher s work is an extensive of learning and education. This theme looks at education and various learning theories which form the basis for learning and teaching. Objectives Teacher students study educational literature and understand how it relates to education and teaching describe the research approaches of education and methodological starting points of education and teaching analyse the learning process through pedagogical literature and learning theories and are able to write their own preliminary practical theory for teaching. Core questions What are education and learning in different environments? What factors are connected to learning and education design? What learning conceptions exist and how do they direct a teacher s work? How is learning taken into account when thinking about learning environments? What viewpoints does educational research offer to a teacher s work? THEME 3: SCHOOLS AND EDUCATION IN SOCIETY A teacher s work always reflects its era, its impressions and ideologies. A teacher works as an individual, member of their work community and member of society. This theme focuses on the historical, sociological and philosophical perspectives of education and teaching. Objectives Teacher students recognise the concepts of educational sociology and understand their significance to education and teaching assess how the actions and changes in society have had an impact on education and teaching know the philosophy behind the ethical and value questions in teachers work and are able to see their own work as a part of a historical and philosophical continuum assess how educational equality has been realised in education and teaching know the philosophic and historical trends of teaching know the history of liberal and vocational education systems can describe the principles of a few alternative pedagogical trends and alternative educational practices used in Finland and internationally. 10

11 Core questions What perspectives does educational sociology bring to a teacher s work? How does a teacher assess their work based on ethical and value questions? What perspectives does educational philosophy offer to teachers and teachers work? How has teachers work changed and what historical turns and movements have existed before? What different pedagogical ideologies are implemented in the Finnish and international education? How has the conception of teaching and learning changed as society has changed?

The module also includes learning environment practice: seven learning environment observations or interviews and an analysis of working culture. FIGURE 1. Viewpoints for learning environments 12

13 LEARNING ENVIRONMENT PRACTICE (3 CR) Learning is not confined to the institutes which offer education. Instead, it can happen anywhere. It is important for a teacher to recognise different learning environments, and to design and use them appropriately in their own teaching. In the learning environment practice the teacher students learn about different learning environments and what their pedagogical affordances are, learning situations, students as well as how educational institutes enable learning through their operational cultures. Core questions How can my field of education create learning environments which promote learning? How can a teacher have an impact on different learning and working environments as well as the construction of the operational culture in an educational institute? How can accessibility be advanced in learning environments? Objectives Teacher students describe and evaluate various working and learning environments used in vocational education evaluate different learning environments and what do they offer for the students own field of education recognise various operational cultures in educational institutes and justify how they affect a teacher s work. pixabay jazmin gaynor jo szczepanska 13

26 3. Principles of studying TAOK has developed models which combine education with work. These take into account teacher students own starting points and goals. Work methods, which meet teachers everyday lives, are used in teaching and studying: collaborative working methods, group and team work, shared expertise, critical thinking and assessment which supports human agency. Participatory pedagogy focuses on supporting students participation and human agency understanding the importance and use of peer groups taking into account students own starting points and goals accepting that learning happens everywhere and all the time continuous use of reflection and assessment. 3.1 PARTICIPATORY PEDAGOGY AND AUTHENTIC LEARNING AS BASES FOR ASSESSMENT A teacher s role has changed from delivering information to facilitating and enabling learning and to designing learning environments. The ideology behind participatory pedagogy requires a new approach to learning. Instead of doing individual and disconnected tasks and learning contents by heart, larger issues, phenomena and problems which arise in a teacher s work are emphasised. The focus is on actions, collaborative building, skills and alternative perspectives. Participatory pedagogy is an extensive approach which combines different pedagogical strategies. It makes use of different types of activating, exploratory and problem- and phenomenon-based pedagogical models and methods. It is not in itself a single method. Human agency means teacher students ability to plan, facilitate, implement and assess their own processes for learning and studying. Participation, on the other hand, is related to the experiences of being able to affect the expectations and demands placed on oneself and others and also to create those expectations. Participatory pedagogy uses the principles of authentic learning. Authentic learning consists of experiences, which are meaningful for the learner, as well as situations where students can practise in the actual environments where they will later be needing their competences. Thus studying focuses on the reality of a vocational teacher s work. In authentic learning teacher students encounter real phenomena in a vocational teacher s work. This connects teacher students to their community of practice and experts working culture. The functional approach is investigative learning, which also supports the development of thinking competences and metacognitive skills. Authenticity is not a single method, but instead authenticity is realised in a dynamic interaction between the learner, the action, the tasks and the learning environments. 26
