Co-requisite or Prerequisite: EDUC 431 Fall, Spring PROPOSED COURSE NUMBER and/or TITLE: Abbreviated Course Title, if necessary: EDUC 432: EDUCATIONAL THEORIES/TRENDS (No change) Updated 18 April 2008 PROPOSED COURSE DESCRIPTION: (Prerequisite change only) 4 Credits Development of a Professional Learning Community in order to explore trends and issues in education within their historical context. Prerequisite: EDUC 331 Fall, Spring LEARNING OUTCOMES: (No change) . Students will • become familiar with major educational theorists including, but not limited to Dewey, Piaget, Vygotsky, and Sizer • establish a Professional Learning Community • read and discuss professional literature • trace the development of secondary education RATIONALE: In discussions about the rotation of future course offerings and staffing, the Secondary Committee realized that we were creating a bottleneck for ourselves by making 431 a pre or co-requisite for this course (EDUC 432) The pre/co-requisite requirement meant that all of our students would have to take this course in the fall of their senior year unless they were on a 41/2 year program. We discussed what knowledge and experience base was essential for this course and decided that what students really needed to appreciate the content of this course was to have Methods I since it provides them with experience in the schools. Changing the prerequisite to EDUC 331 only, means that students can take the course in spring of junior year or fall of senior. RESOURCES: (No change) This course will rotate among the secondary education faculty members. No new resources are needed.
