EDUC 2400 - The Professional Educator


(5 cr.) Lifelong learning and professionalism are key components of effective teaching. As teacher candidates begin their professional program of study, they review the program requirements including field experience responsibilities and major assessments. Teacher candidates study the dimensions of teacher professionalism through the eyes of social change. After reviewing the code of ethics from a practitioner viewpoint, historical theorists, court cases, and trends in education, candidates focus on what is required to be successful in 21st century schools. This includes an analysis of multiple technological frameworks, and candidates use these frameworks in multiple ways throughout the course. Through readings, voices from the field, virtual field experiences, and reflective experiences, each candidate begins to consider his/her personal philosophy.  (Prerequisite(s): ENGL 1010, Math-Algebra.)
