EDU-2320 Engaged in Creative Teaching and Learning

3 credits

Prerequisite: None.

Designed as an introductory course, this course will explore the interaction between learning and teaching and serve as a formal introduction to the field of teaching, how teachers develop their practices, and the Vermont state licensure process. Pre-service teachers will engage in child study, participate in on-going classroom inquiry into learning inquiry, explore central ideas that influence teaching and shape classroom management, and the integration of technology, and begin development of the licensure portfolio. Self- reflection will be central and support potential education majors in exploring teaching in a public school setting and considering whether it is something they might wish to pursue.
