Early years professional status Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Early Years Professional Status Course structure and Blackboard Provision
  • 2. Historically:
    • 4 pathways:
    • Validation
    • Short
    • Long
    • Full Training
    • (All to do with the student starting point)
    • Used to have 9 modules
    • Tailored modules to each person - some taking 9, other as little as 2.
    • About 200 students per year - 3 months to 15 months.
    • Qualification: EYPS - but long pathway is a 'top up' programme to EYPS in Professional Development.
  • 3. Historic Blackboard Provision
    • Blackboard sections for:
      • Validation
      • Short
      • Long
      • Full Training
    • Each section containing module information and assessment information
    • Leading to
    • repetition … errors … confusion
  • 4. Recent Blackboard Provision
    • One section for 2010-2011
      • For ALL students for ALL years
      • Around 400 students
      • Intakes in September, January and April
      • Bury, Shrewsbury, Cheshire, Manchester, Wirral and Ormskirk.
  • 5. Current situation
    • Current Academic situation:
    • Short
    • Long (practice and leadership)
    • Full Training (all practice based)
    • PLUS there is a separate area for Leadership
  • 6. Reason for sticking it all together:
    • Reduce duplication
      • Historic – used to be four area for the whole programme – now one.
      • Single area for modules, materials etc.
      • Single assessment area (materials)
    • Grouping used to keep pathways blinkered
    • Issues / concerns
      • Not used for discussion / collaboration / assessment
  • 7. Could the Programme / Module model work?
    • Most complex is the BA Hons route
      • 6 modules per route
        • (but note, 6 for practice and 6 for leadership)
    • So … yes …
  • 8. Thoughts about Bb 9.1:
    • Proposed:
      • Four programme areas
      • Separate module areas
    • Advantages
      • Less sticking together
      • More pedagogically sound – facilitates use of Blackboard affordances (chat, discussion, assessment)
    • Issues:
      • Students won’t gain access until they’re in SID
        • Challenging the student experience
