Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

By carrying out a project pertaining to the development of technology education, the student is given the opportunity to apply their subject-specific didactic skills to develop the teaching within an area of the technology subject in the elementary or upper secondary school. The project may address for example (but not necessarily limited to) lesson planning, choice of course material, accessibility, professional development, and formative and summative assessment. The theme should be preferably connected to the student's previous research domain and/or the activities at the placement school. The project starts before, and is completed after, a placement period. This way, students have the opportunity to collect data or test ideas during their placement.

The course aims to enhance the student's possibility develop the teaching of technology, independently and together with others. The work is documented in a written report. In addition, the report can include e.g. lesson plans, artefacts, and teaching material. The work is carried out with support from a supervisor.

Intended learning outcomes

1. Based on scientific knowledge, proven experience and current regulations identify possible fields of development in technology teaching

2. Plan a development project in the field of technology teaching, based on science and proven experience

3. Within given frameworks, even with limited information, examine, analyse and discuss complex issues, as well as deal with more advanced problems within their area of teaching

4. Reflect on, evaluate and critically examine their own experiences and scientific results, and those of others

5. Reflect on his/her newly acquired knowledge in relation to the teaching mission, as well as to previous education and professional or vocational experience

6. Document and present their work to a given audience, with high expectations on structure, formatting and language

7. Analyse their own need of additional knowledge and discuss future professional development.
