Enhancements to a Vision of the Teacher for the 21st Century

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract


In 2011 Professor Graham Donaldson’s seminal review of teacher education, Teaching Scotland’s Future, identified a range of challenges for the education sector in Scotland. At the University of Strathclyde we used this review to successfully drive real change by phasing out the B.Ed. (Hons) Primary Education programme and replacing it with a BA (Hons) Primary Education degree in 2013. Since then the teacher education sector in Scotland has undergone significant reform in multiple areas. At the core of this reform, has been a key re-conceptualisation of professional learning, which stresses amongst other things, the importance of teachers developing ever more accomplished skills as reflective and enquiring professionals.

This document presents the subsequent enhancements to the BA (Hons) Primary Education degree by the School of Education, at the University of Strathclyde in light of this reform. It is hoped that this will further its contribution to national landscape of undergraduate initial teacher education provision in Scotland. While maintaining its original vision of establishing the 21st century teacher, it provides a rationale for a revised degree structure aimed at helping to do so ever more effectively, and explains the regulations and content that will define key modifications to the original degree.

The future of Scotland lies in its children. The University of Strathclyde maintains its clarity about the part it plays in providing the teachers that Scotland needs to ensure these children are highly educated, skilled, confident and creative individuals who understand the place they have within their own communities and the global community in which they live.
