The Provincial government has “set a goal that every young person have at least one opportunity for experiential learning.” (Speech from the Throne, Sept. 12, 2016). Cooperative Education and other forms of experiential learning continues to expand in Ontario high schools with more students participating in experiential learning programs, such as Specialist High Skills Programs (SHSM), Dual Credits, Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP), and other student success initiatives. Student learning happens beyond the classroom, and Cooperative Education Part 1 will allow you to teach in these expanding areas.
In this course you will:
come to understand the foundations of cooperative education, including pre-course planning, course logistics and student placement procedures
recognize the rights and responsibilities of community and school/staff partners in instructional strategies in both the classroom and placement components, including assessment and evaluation, monitoring, health and safety and legal and ethical issues
recognize the value of reflection, collaboration and active engagement while participating in on-line discussions with colleagues
explore resources, readings and references while building a portfolio of lessons, websites, tools, and other artifacts.
We will use the OCT number you provide during online registration to confirm that you are an OCT member.
