EDUC 507 Introduction to Danielson’s Professional Framework for Teaching

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
500 level graduate course

The 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. These domains include Planning and Preparation, Classroom Environment, Instruction, and Professional Responsibilities. This course is designed to assist the participants in understanding how Framework for Teaching can enhance professional practice by understanding the domains of teaching responsibility, promoting professional learning, using the framework to enhance self-directed learning, and understanding how to use these tools to ensure consistency in exemplary teaching practice. Participants will also evaluate the latest research, examine case studies, and become familiar with instruments to support teacher evaluation and professional learning.
