EDUC 622: Advanced Seminar in Professional and Leadership Development (1)*
Accomplished teachers reflect upon their practice, collaborate with peers, share expertise, mentor less experienced colleagues, and contribute to their school and professional field. This course helps teachers become effective mentors and collaborators while refining their reflective practices. To further this development teachers are expected to continue extensive use of listserv and other technologies for reflection and collaboration. Mentoring of initially-licensed or student teachers and school leadership activities are an expected part of this seminar. In this course teachers construct a portfolio of their teaching practice and make a formal presentation to their peers. A major focus of this course is well-written descriptive and expository prose which is the focus of the teaching portfolio. Prerequisites: EDUC 620 and EDUC 621.
