18 ED132 Drama (2 credits) 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. 17 ED133a Curriculum Music 1: Preparing to Teach Music (1 credit) 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 will develop an understanding of the eight music concepts on which the curriculum is based. They will 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 role of enquiry in history and geography education will be explored, along with key concepts and theories relevant to each area. The course is 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
20 examined in the light of learning theories relevant to primary history and geography, research in primary geography and history and students own reflections on their prior experiences as learners. Enabling Lifelong Learning ED151 Digital Learning (2 credits) Organic in nature, this course 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 course 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. The teacher-learner is at the centre and it is their experiences, needs and interests which constitute the learning process. 19 ED152 ED153 ED154 Introduction to Teaching Pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN) (2 credits) 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 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. Classroom Assessment (2 credits) 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. Reflection & Enquiry (1 credit) 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.
21 Students will also examine how 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. 20 Teachers, Schools and Communities in a Changing World ED161 Analysis of Teaching 1 (1 credit) 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 ED163 Teacher as Person (2 credits) 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. School Placement 1 (5 credits) and ED164 Preparation for School Placement (2 credits) These modules provide students with an introduction to school-based experiences. Students will spend time in schools during which they will undertake a series of reflective tasks and observation activities. These tasks will help students explore how children engage in learning, how teaching is mediated by the class teacher and the nature of relationships in the classroom. School Placement modules are closely aligned with the Reflection and Enquiry and Analysis of Teaching tutorials. Placement details: Semester 2 3 weeks (10 Fridays + 1 week block) Self-selected placement: Infants - 2nd Class
22 YEAR 2 Children and Childhoods in Diverse Contexts ED211 Systems, Change and Childhood (2 credits) This interdisciplinary module draws on historical, philosophical and psychological perspectives on systems, change and childhood to develop understandings of children's social and emotional development. Students will be equipped with an emerging understanding of children's development from a psychological perspective. Students will also engage with systemic responses to individual difference, focusing on change and reform in Irish education from a historical perspective. In tandem with a focus on individual difference, systemic change and reform, students will also examine understandings of childhood and identity that emerge in the modern period and continue to influence change within a global educational horizon. 21 ED212 Social, Personal & Health Education (2 credits) 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. ED213a Foundations in Primary Religious Education (2 credits) This module explores the theoretical basis for current approaches to schoolbased primary religious education. The emphasis is on Christian religious education. Students are also introduced to other forms of religious education carried out in Irish primary schools. Students examine research from the philosophical, theological and educational domains that have a significant influence upon contemporary religious education programmes and practice. An examination of these theoretical foundations enables students to begin to develop a professional rationale supporting their own
23 approach to religious education in the primary school. The course also introduces students to participatory and empowering methods in religious education. 22 ED213b Ethics and Education: An Introduction (2 credits) 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 ethic development to the wellbeing of children and society. It draws on exemplar curricula in ethical education from national and international contexts, including the Learn Together curriculum of Educate Together Schools in Ireland. It enables students to experience and use philosophical approaches to support the development of thinking and emotional well-being. As an international attempt to agree a code of values common to diverse traditions, beliefs and systems of governance, the international human rights framework will be applied to educational contexts and its potential to inform practice critiqued. ED214 ED215 Learning and Teaching Mathematics in the Early Years (2 credits) Key concepts explored include: a child s pre-school mathematical learning forms the basis for mathematical learning during the early years at school; the language of mathematics needs to be developed with young children; their engagement in mathematically-related discussion is crucial. The need to engage children in meaningful mathematical activities and tasks to enhance their interest is emphasised. The role of appropriate materials and resources in this process is examined. Students explore the ways in which the themes of Aistear (Well-being; Identity and Belonging; Communicating; Exploring and Thinking) may be developed and integrated with the Primary School Curriculum: Mathematics for Infant Classes. Students are introduced to the principle that problem-solving is at the heart of mathematical learning. They explore strategies which enhance children's understandings of the relationships between concepts, processes and mathematical symbols. Sociology of Education (2 credits) Following from students previous studies of children and childhood, this module focuses on a range of issues pertaining to systems, change and childhood. Students examine how specific practices of education may alienate children from various types of background and how they as teachers can act as agents of change within educational systems. Key areas of exploration include: Societal and school factors influencing child wellbeing; Children's rights and the "voice of the child"; Teachers, children and
24 privacy rights and issues in schooling; How schooling is implicated in the production of gendered, raced and class-based identities; Parental involvement in schooling; Gender, sexuality and schooling; Intelligence, equality and schooling; The implications of equal status legislation for teachers classroom practices; Education and consumerism; Violence in schools. This module also examines how sociology as a discipline can inform our understandings of education and our practices as teachers. The distinctive features of a sociological approach to education are outlined, as are the central questions with which sociologists of education are concerned. Students are familiarised with key theories and thinkers within critical sociology of education. 23 Teaching, Learning and Curriculum: Learning through Language and Literacy ED221 Teagasc na Gaeilge (2 creidiúint) Tabharfaidh an modúil seo deis do na mic léinn a chuid eolais agus taithí i gcleachtas agus teoiric theagasc na Gaeilge sa bhunscoil a leathnú agus a dhaingniú. Beidh forbairt á dhéanamh ar a gcuid tuisceana ar ábhar foghlama agus ar mhodheolaíochtaí teagaisc Churaclam na Gaeilge. Beidh iniúchadh agus plé ar na straitéisí is éifeachtaí le teanga a fhoghlaim agus a theagasc. Cuirfear deiseanna ar fáil do mhic léinn cur leis na scileanna teagaisc agus measúnú atá acu. ED222 /GAE2 ED223 Gaeilge 2: Labhairt agus Litearthacht (2 creidiúint) Cúrsa teanga d'ábhair oidí sa dara bliain, bunaithe ar leibhéal B2 den Fhráma Tagartha Eorpach do Theangacha, atá sa chúrsa seo. Is é príomhchuspóir an chúrsa seo ná inniúlachtaí na mac léinn a fhorbairt sa chaoi go mbeidh siad ábalta an Ghaeilge a labhairt agus a scríobh go saoráideach, go háirithe i gcomhthéacs a gcuid dualgaisí mar ábhair oidí. Cuirtear ar chumas na mac léinn an teanga a labhairt níos saoráidí fós mar theanga chaidrimh agus léinn agus í a úsáid gan mórán stró mar theanga a ngairme. Déantar leathnú ar an stór focal agus cuirtear leis an líofacht trí mheán na cainte, na léitheoireachta, na scríbhneoireachta agus na héisteachta. Féachtar le cruinneas maith a bhaint amach i dtaca le gramadach agus litriú na Gaeilge. Tá sé i gceist freisin go gcothóidh an cúrsa feasacht teanga agus feasacht chultúrtha na mac léinn agus go spreagfaidh sé iad leis an ngaeilge a úsaid go neamhspleách mar theanga chaidrimh taobh amuigh de na ranganna sceidealaithe.
