Students will link theory with practice for use in authentic learning environments. The development of an individual professional identity is a core component of the program. This identity and the beliefs formed and identified about teaching and learning shape the practice of the developing educator.
There are no exams for this course component.
Theories and practice examined will take account of a wide range of international perspectives, including those brought to the cohort by the participants themselves.
This is a 5 ECTS course. 5x27 hours = approx 135 hours.
The aim of the basic studies in education is to improve teacher students understanding of the phenomena they encounter in their work as teachers.
