About this course:

This is one of four required core courses in the UCLA Extension Teacher Induction Program, leading to a California Clear Credential (Multiple Subject, Single Subject, or Education Specialist). The essential question for this course is: How do I demonstrate my growth as a professional educator? This capstone course serves as the culmination of candidates’ learning, observations, and field experiences after completing three other courses in the Teacher Induction Program. The course has two main components: a) collecting and reflecting on evidence of professional growth in the California Standards for the Teaching Profession; evidence is housed in an e-portfolio; and b) demonstrating development as a professional educator by designing and delivering a learning module to share knowledge within the teacher’s professional learning community. For the professional learning module, candidates select a topic area about which they have gained some expertise in the program. With input from the instructor, a mentor teacher, and the site administrator, candidates create a learning experience that contributes to the knowledge base of their peers, parents of their students, or others in the community in which they teach.
