Using a Reflective Approach - School-based Training

7.5 credits

The course 1UV207 consists of school based training in combination with a number of seminars. As a student, you participate during every day in a pedagogic work and you get a tutor at the placement. The course implies full time studies, five days a week during period 2 and presence is mandatory. As a part of the internship the you are given assignments. The major assignment is to analyze one’s own pedagogical work at the school (preschool) and present the outcome in a paper and orally at a seminar.

The course is suitable for those who plan to become a teacher or a pre school teacher. When applying, you should, in order to get a suitable placement, point out what kind of educational setting would be the best option for you. That is, mention how old children/students should be at the school or preschool where you wish to be placed. Please also state what school subjects (if any) should be considered for you. To get access to schools/pre schools in Sweden it is required that you present a certificate from the police when you arrive at your placement. Extra costs for travel to and from the internship placement can occur

For those of you that are not already familiar with the Swedish school system the course ”Pre school and compulsory school in Sweden and abroad” (1PE011) is a suitable foundation for this course. In that course you become prepared to better understand the Swedish school system and that will facilitate the work to reach the goals during the school based training.
