EDUC 511 Framework for Teaching - Professional Responsibilities

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
500 level graduate course

The Danielson Framework for Teaching is a research-based set of components of instruction, aligned to the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) standards. This conceptual model, developed by Charlotte Danielson, is grounded in a constructivist view of learning and teaching, which advocates that learning occurs as learners are actively involved in a process of meaning and knowledge construction as opposed to passively receiving information. The Framework is clustered into four domains of teaching responsibility. The fourth domain is Professional Responsibilities. This course is designed to assist the participants in understanding how Professional Responsibilities can enhance professional practice by participating in a professional community, maintaining accurate records, maintaining professional communication, and critical personal reflection. Participants will also evaluate the latest research, examine case studies, and become familiar with instruments to support building their own professional responsibilities.
