Expected outcomes for graduates of Lesley's graduate Science in Education programs.
One of our goals is for our graduates to be well-prepared for the classroom. We have put a system in place to track student progress, which includes competencies developed for each program that link to state and professional standards. Key assignments are identified in every course, and faculty give students actionable feedback on their progress based on these assignments, to ensure continuous improvement. Expected outcomes:
Classroom CultureThe practice of establishing a respectful, equitable environment for a diverse population of students that promotes a high degree of learner engagement and a clear commitment to learning: Understand that cultural competence is essential to successful science instruction for all students, and implements an equitable space. Classroom ClimateLearning Diversity: Makes content accessible to a diverse population of learners. AssessmentThe practice of using multiple methods of assessment to engage learners in their own growth, to monitor learner progress and to guide the teacher's and learner's decision making: Are able to use a variety of strategies to assess student understanding of science concepts which are sensitive to diversity in the classroom.
Teaching and Learning
