Writing, Part 2
Course Code: YU20WR21
The Additional Qualification Course: Writing Part 2 facilitates collaborative design and implementation of professional practice and critical pedagogies as well as knowledge and skills outlined in the OCT guideline. Throughout the course, you will continue to inquire critically into professional practices, pedagogies, and ethical cultures of teaching and learning within the context of writing instruction and learning to write.
To begin, you will examine beliefs and theories about writing in an educational setting. From there, you will integrate learning theories while planning for the student writer by considering learners’ individual needs, narratives, interests and learning preferences. To create an effective and trusting learning environment featuring shared responsibility for learning, you will plan, design, and implement innovative 21st-Century pedagogies, tools, and processes that invite and engage students. In addition, you will collaborate to design and integrate assessment practices encompassing MOE curriculum frameworks and policy documents while considering fair, equitable, transparent, valid, and reliable assessment methods that honour the dignity, developmental needs, emotional wellness, and identity of all students.
