Extended Learning


The Faculty of Education offers two extended learning opportunities. 


For practicing educators, an examination of numeracy pedagogy connecting research to present-day instructional practices. Students will build personal and common understandings of how children in schools engage with quantitative or spatial information to create meaning in the K-6 classroom. Instruction will build on a model of co-construction, which will culminate, with the development of a numeracy plan for use in their classrooms. Topics include visible numeracy practices that promote number conservation, problem-solving skills, mathematical relationships, geometrical thinking, and differentiation and assessment.
