EPSE 310A Assessment and Learning in the Classroom (Winter 2018-2019 Term 2)

EPSE 310A Assessment and Learning in the Classroom

Credits: 2


Preference is given to doctoral students who have a strong understanding of classroom assessment and learning principles, however, students must have reached candidacy in order to apply for these sections. It is preferred that the successful applicant will have completed a graduate course in classroom assessment (e.g., EPSE 581) before teaching this course, but it is not required. Completion of EPSE 606, College and University Teaching is considered a strong asset. As well, experience teaching in K-12 schools is helpful, but not required.  Successful doctoral applicants must also have the approval of his/her research supervisor (based on making satisfactory progress in the program). Non-students with the appropriate qualifications are also welcome to apply.


EPSE 310A is for Elementary and Middle Years Teacher Candidates and takes place in January-March. These sections are taught in a seminar format only.  Instructors for these sections will be teaching the full content of the course in their seminar sections and thus instructors applying for these sections much have reached candidacy in their doctoral program before the start of this course. The course runs as a community of practice and thus instructors, along with the course coordinator, will contribute to the content and organization of the course. There will be a common syllabus for all sections and instructors. It is expected that all instructors will attend a number of planning sessions that will take place in fall term. Those who have experience teaching EPSE 310B will be given preference for hiring in EPSE 310A.
