Capstone Project (PIDP 3270) 2.0 credits  course outline



During the Capstone Project, participants will outline and describe what relevant life and work experiences they brought into the program. They will then reflect upon the themes and concepts, key insights and points of learning from each PIDP course and how they understand  the integration of these insights in terms of their own work. The participants will develop and deepen the reflection of their personal experiences in the program and the implications for their practice. Last, the participants will design, deliver, digitally record and self-assess a 45-90 minute lesson which will be delivered in a real setting.

This is a self-paced course in which participants work on their own, in consultation with their PIDP Advisor, to complete the course requirements.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of all seven PIDP courses (PIDP 3100, 3210, 3220, 3230, 3240, 3250 or 3280, 3260 or 3290).

Please contact the office to arrange an advisor..

Delivery of Instruction (PIDP 3220) 3.0 credits  course outline



The Delivery of Instruction course provides participants with the opportunity to prepare, deliver and debrief three short (10 min.) mini-lessons with the rest of the class. Participants are encouraged to select one lesson from each of the three domains of learning (cognitive, affective, psychomotor). They are expected to use a variety of techniques while they present content and processes in a clear, enthusiastic and interactive manner. They will provide useful feedback to other course participants. The instructor will critique each lesson as well. Participants will then reflect critically on each lesson they taught and prepare a written reflective report describing their progress and learning during the course. This particular approach has been proven to be highly effective in increasing instructional skills in adult educators.

The instructional strategies include demonstration and practice of mini-lessons and providing oral and written feedback.

Capstone Project (PIDP 3270) 2.0 credits  course outline



During the Capstone Project, participants will outline and describe what relevant life and work experiences they brought into the program. They will then reflect upon the themes and concepts, key insights and points of learning from each PIDP course and how they understand  the integration of these insights in terms of their own work. The participants will develop and deepen the reflection of their personal experiences in the program and the implications for their practice. Last, the participants will design, deliver, digitally record and self-assess a 45-90 minute lesson which will be delivered in a real setting.

This is a self-paced course in which participants work on their own, in consultation with their PIDP Advisor, to complete the course requirements.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of all seven PIDP courses (PIDP 3100, 3210, 3220, 3230, 3240, 3250 or 3280, 3260 or 3290).

Please contact the office to arrange an advisor..

Delivery of Instruction (PIDP 3220) 3.0 credits  course outline



The Delivery of Instruction course provides participants with the opportunity to prepare, deliver and debrief three short (10 min.) mini-lessons with the rest of the class. Participants are encouraged to select one lesson from each of the three domains of learning (cognitive, affective, psychomotor). They are expected to use a variety of techniques while they present content and processes in a clear, enthusiastic and interactive manner. They will provide useful feedback to other course participants. The instructor will critique each lesson as well. Participants will then reflect critically on each lesson they taught and prepare a written reflective report describing their progress and learning during the course. This particular approach has been proven to be highly effective in increasing instructional skills in adult educators.

The instructional strategies include demonstration and practice of mini-lessons and providing oral and written feedback.

Capstone Project (PIDP 3270) 2.0 credits  course outline



During the Capstone Project, participants will outline and describe what relevant life and work experiences they brought into the program. They will then reflect upon the themes and concepts, key insights and points of learning from each PIDP course and how they understand  the integration of these insights in terms of their own work. The participants will develop and deepen the reflection of their personal experiences in the program and the implications for their practice. Last, the participants will design, deliver, digitally record and self-assess a 45-90 minute lesson which will be delivered in a real setting.

This is a self-paced course in which participants work on their own, in consultation with their PIDP Advisor, to complete the course requirements.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of all seven PIDP courses (PIDP 3100, 3210, 3220, 3230, 3240, 3250 or 3280, 3260 or 3290).

Please contact the office to arrange an advisor..
