April – November 2017
The 125 hour Additional Qualification course Mathematics, Primary and Junior, Part II, is designed for critically designing, applying and facilitating dialogue related to learning opportunities that integrate the professional knowledge, skills and pedagogical stances. It builds upon the foundation developed in Mathematics, Primary and Junior Part I as it employs a critical, pedagogical lens to explore in a holistic and integrated manner theoretical foundations, learning theory, program planning, development and implementation, instructional design and practices, assessment and evaluation, the learning environment, research and ethical considerations related to teaching and learning across the divisions. Through these explorations, candidates strengthen professional efficacy by gaining in-depth knowledge, refining professional judgment and generating new knowledge for practice.
Critical to the holistic implementation of this course is the modeling of a positive learning environment that reflects care, diversity and equity. This course supports the enhancement of professional knowledge, ethical practice, leadership and ongoing professional learning.
This is a blended course with 60 hours face to face and 40 hours of online work plus 25 hours of assignment work.
The North East field team is pleased to partner with Laurentian University to offer this very exciting and innovative Mathematics Additional Qualifications collaborative learning opportunity!
The course is 60% face to face and 40% online. All information related to the coursework and assignments is posted at mathleadershipnetwork.ca.
