Foundations of Teaching for Learning Capstone: The Reflective Practitioner

We are excited to provide this course for graduates of Foundations of Teaching for Learning Courses 1-8. This further enrichment of key themes in learning and teaching we have entitled ‘The Reflective Practitioner’ in order to emphasise the importance of standing back from practice to review, extend and challenge what we know, what we do and what we aspire to do better.

About The Course

This course is open to learners who have completed all eight courses on the Foundations of Teaching for Learning MOOC. It revisits topics covered and focuses on what it really means to be a reflective practitioner.  One of the great paradoxes of learning is that the more you know the more you become aware of what you don’t know... and the more you want to know! This course offers an opportunity to further deepen and broaden your professional expertise. It provides an opportunity to participate in practical tasks and assessments that draw on the knowledge and skills gained in the previous courses.

If you have completed the eight courses, signed up to the Signature track, met all the assessment requirements of the programme and would like to continue to build on your interest and achievements, this course is for you! There is enough challenge and scope for experienced users but this course also fits other demographics and is also suitable for learners who may struggle with English as a second of further language, who may not have a great deal of teaching skill yet or may not yet hold a teaching qualification.

Recommended Background

Successful completion of all eight courses on the Foundations of Teaching for Learning is a requirement before taking this course.
