ORIENTATION: PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Welcome to the Teacher Education Program at the University of Ottawa. We anticipate that this will be
both an engaging and exciting year for all of us to live and learn together on the traditional unceded
territories of the Algonquin people. During the next two years you will have many unique opportunities
within our B.Ed. program to develop as professional educators within a variety of international, national,
and local learning communities. Let’s get started!!!
This graphic represents the components of our full-time professional program. The Ontario College of
Teachers (OCT) has accredited our program to ensure that you will graduate as an OCT certified teacher
in addition to your University of Ottawa degree. In Year 1 you will focus on “Teacher as Professional” and
Year 2 “Teacher as Researcher” will be the focus.

                                                                                                                PROFESSIONALISM

and then through discussion, connect the school classroom
experience to the more theoretical discussions they have in
their own courses. Other professors send their students out into
the community to provide service to a variety of educational
communities and to discuss those experiences in their teacher
education classes with the view of linking theory and research
to those experiences. Hence, the notion of community not only
includes the courses and classrooms within the teacher education
program but also extends to communities beyond the program,
all of which helps to provide forums for inquiry and learning.
 We use the word ‘inquiry’ to reflect our view of teachers as both
‘teacher’ and ‘learner’ as they engage in examining what it means
to teach and what it means to learn. In some cultures, teacher
and learner are not separate words, which would better represent
the idea that both teachers and learners play these dual roles. For
instance, in Maori, the word ‘ako’ is used to mean to learn, study,
instruct, teach, and advise.

    Introduction and Overview
    Welcome to the Teacher Education program at the University of Ottawa. This guidebook is designed to provide
    teacher candidates, associate teachers, faculty representatives and school partners an overview of the practicum
    experience in our new extended program. We recognize that our program continues to be a work in progress and
    we welcome your insights and suggestions as we work through this year. We are committed to creating a teacher
    education program that reflects the best in teaching and learning and we certainly could not do this without your
    commitment, expertise and understanding in mentoring our teacher candidates. The strength of this partnership is
    reflected in the video about the value of Associate Teachers on our faculty web-site.1
    We see the practicum experience as a developmental and collaborative process between the Teacher Candidate,
    the Associate Teacher, the Faculty Representative and the host school partners. Our practicum experiences reflect a
    clear and consistent link between theory and practice, consisting of two parts: Community Service Learning and
    Practicum.
