    Early years professional status Early years professional status Presentation Transcript

    • Early Years Professional Status Course structure and Blackboard Provision
    • 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.
    • Historic Blackboard Provision
      • Blackboard sections for:
        • Validation
        • Short
        • Long
        • Full Training
      • Each section containing module information and assessment information
      • Leading to
      • repetition … errors … confusion
    • 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.
    • Current situation
      • Current Academic situation:
      • Short
      • Long (practice and leadership)
      • Full Training (all practice based)
      • PLUS there is a separate area for Leadership
    • 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
    • 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 …
    • 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
