The following courses are recommended as selectives. Students and faculty are also invited to nominate courses as possible “teacher education specialization selectives.” Topics to be addressed by a selective include:

  •        discipline and domain specific contexts and practices of teacher education;
  •        teacher learning in non-formal settings;
  •        social, cultural, political, historical, and/or international contexts of and perspectives on teaching and teacher education;
  •        adult learning theory;
  •        conceptualizations and framings of children and youth;
  •        practitioner research.

Students should consider their own professional interests and aspirations, and strive for a sense of “well-roundedness,” in making their selection or recommendation. Specialization faculty are also available to consult on selection. (See Contact Us)
