Course Descriptions

Classroom Management
This course will introduce strategies for creating and supporting a safe, inclusive, learning focused classroom—a process that begins with effective classroom management. Classroom
Management examines how several different components of teaching are integral to creating and maintaining a positive, ethical, equitable, accepting, inclusive, engaging, and safe learning environment. Teachers will explore processes that promote a collaborative community that encourages student voice, leadership, critical inquiry, and self-regulation. In addition, students will establish practices that promote partnerships that value shared responsibility, decision-making, advocacy, and leadership.

Orientation to Teaching in Ontario
This course will enhance the understanding of effective practices and instructional strategies in Ontario classrooms. Teachers will explore the policies and strategies underpinning the Ontario curriculum, understand the procedures related to the Individual Education Plan process (IEP) and engage in course planning integrating differentiated instructions and universal design. Teachers will apply the Ethical Standards for the Teaching Profession and the Standards of Practice for the Teaching Profession in their program planning.

Student Assessment and Evaluation
Student assessment and evaluation is an integral part of the teaching and learning process. Teachers in Ontario, and elsewhere, are required to use diverse forms of assessment to support and communicate progress in learning to students, parents, and school administrators. This course will build on teacher’s knowledge of current assessment practices and support teachers in exploring ways to enhance the use of assessment. Specifically, current assessment theory and practices will be examined with opportunities for teachers to critically reflect on the integration of these theories and practices into their classroom to support student learning.

Teaching and Learning Through e-Learning (offered online)
This course will focus on how students work and learn online and the differences between an online medium and a classroom. Using resources such as the Ontario Educational Resource Bank or the Provincial Learning Management System, Teaching and Learning Through E-Learning will introduce teachers to the evolving medium of e-Learning. The goal of this course is to provide teachers with a foundation to support effective student learning in online environments. Teachers will also have a chance to be part of a learning community, sharing thoughts and ideas with colleagues.

Teaching Students with Communication Needs (Learning Disability)
This course focuses on the theory and practice to support students with learning disabilities. Throughout this course, teachers will explore the various definitions and characteristics of learning disabilities. Through discussion and collaborations, teachers will discover cognitive, academic, and social-emotional implications of LD and generate ways to develop a positive learning environment for students with LD. The course will address how social-emotional issues affect academic outcomes, research various academic strategies, and brainstorm the implications of psychological processes for students with LD. Teachers will have the opportunity to apply their learning to developing student profiles, transition plans, and gain applicable strategies that they can use in their teaching practice.
