EDUC-5001-770 ST: Reflecting on my Practice

Instructor: H. Hunter
Dates and Times: Mondays, September 14 to December 7; 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Location: Scheduled class times will take place using an online platform. Additional course work will be made available via nexus.uwinnipeg.ca. 

This course is designed for teachers who want to think about and share their work. Engaging in individual and collaborative critically reflective processes, students will identify and scrutinize the assumptions that shape their practice.  A theoretical framework of alternative education will support project-based inquiry whereby students can navigate between theory and practice to consider ways to improve teaching and learning. 

The course is based on these guiding assumptions: 

  • Teaching is a reflective activity that involves the study of our own experiences to improve our work,
  • Professional learning is a continuous process with many factors influencing our growth, 
  • Broader social and economic contexts influence, and are influenced by, the work of teachers, and
  • Teachers have the greatest impact when their work addresses the social, emotional, moral, aesthetic, physical and intellectual development of their students.

This course counts as an elective in the General, Special Education and School Counselling streams.
