Introduction to Teaching and Learning (EDMT5500)


This unit of study provides an introduction to teaching and learning through the framework of the instructional core. Three observation visits to schools will provide the primary source for pre-service teachers to explore the relationship between teacher's pedagogy, classroom activities and student learning. Seminars will engage pre-service teachers in inquiry learning as they challenge their long-held beliefs about schools to see schooling through multiple lenses.
