About this Event

This course is free and open to final year B.Ed. and PME students in MIE and our International partner Institutions. Over the course of two weeks, we will host ten workshops on four themes relevant to 'Building your Professional Identity for the Classroom'. The winter school has been designed for students interested in exploring different cultures and obtaining a global view of teaching as part of their college experience. Each session will provide opportunities for peer-learning with International student teachers in the form of Breakout-rooms, Polling, Kahoot, Mentimeter, Slide share, Padlet, Prerecorded video.

Theme 1: Realising my Professional Identity

These sessions investigate the importance of values, biography and professional knowledge in identifying and articulating ones teaching philosophy. Four perspectives of identity will be explored; the interpretation of experiences, the importance of context, means to harmonise sub identities and the centrality of agency.

Theme 2: Being a Reflective Practitioner

Reflective practice is a key facet of professional learning and growth. These sessions will deepen understandings of reflective practice through the application of various modes and models of reflection in teaching from an individual and collaborative perspective.

Theme 3: Being a Collaborative Professional

Collaboration is a key feature of primary schools today. The focus has shifted from the teacher being in isolation in the classroom to being a member of a professional learning community. These sessions focus on the personal and collective roles and responsibilities in creating, maintaining and sustaining a collaborative approach to teaching and learning.

Theme 4: Being a Research-Informed Professional

Considering alternative perspectives and staying informed about changing approaches to teaching and learning is important for innovative and engaged professionals. These sessions explore how graduate teachers can access, critically assess, and apply education research in the classroom through communities of practice, individual inquiry and whole school research frameworks.

Workshops run from 2-13 November, 17:00-18:30 GMT daily
