EPSE 310A: Assessment and Learning in the Classroom


Preference is given to doctoral students who have a strong understanding of classroom assessment and learning principles, however, students must have reached candidacy and have approval from their supervisor in order to apply for these sections. It is preferred that 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 preferred, but not required.

Specific Course Information and Requirements:

EPSE 310A is for Elementary Teacher Candidates and takes place in January-March.  These sections are taught in a seminar format and will most likely take place online.  Instructors for these sections will teach the full content of the course in their seminar (either online or in person—to be decided by UBC).  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 starting 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 and have some knowledge of Canvas (or be willing to learn before the course starts). Those who have experience teaching EPSE 310B will be given preference for hiring in EPSE 310A.  As well, those with experience in teaching early primary or French speakers will be given priority over the section in which this applies.
