Educators need the ability to understand development and the learning process, connect with their students, and think critically about classrooms and institutions. The Education Integrated Pathway will support students in threading all of these elements together, connecting coursework with practical experience. Through a variety of courses and a practicum, students will explore issues in teaching and learning from historical, political, philosophical, and practical perspectives. Students can individualize the experience to fit their specific interests in teaching and learning while participating in the common experience of exploring educational issues critically.
Students are encouraged to suggest a co-curricular activity (in an educational setting) that is personalized to their interests. Some examples are:
Students will complete a Presentation of Learning. The purpose of the Presentation of Learning would be to draw from the varied courses as well as the co-curricular practicum to synthesize and share what has been learned. This could be a presentation at a colloquium, could be a poster or presentation at an Earlham Educational Forum, etc.
