This course is a self-directed independent study/ fieldwork component taking place in between the summer semesters to support and develop the teaching or other educational practice of student teachers during the year when they are engaged in their full time teaching or related professional responsibilities. Student-teachers are given individually designed projects catering to the learning needs of their students and their own academic interests. They may create a video documentation of their teaching for the purpose of self-reflective inquiry. During this course, student-teachers are also able to choose their thesis track option and identify their research concerns. Assessment of the course is done in a variety of ways including site visits, use of online and social learning platforms, video conferencing, and reflective teacher journals. The course is conducted off campus.
