B.ED. HISTORY EDUCATION

Programme Overview

This programme is designed to meet the ever changing and evolving needs of teachers of history and to stimulate their commitment to lifelong learning and continuous professional development. It seeks also to sharpen their awareness of the need to be in the forefront of development and change in education if they are to remain relevant in the classroom.

Objectives

The programme is therefore not an end in itself. It will equip teachers with the necessary knowledge, skills, and disposition to enable them to engage in independent learning, continuous research, and the ability to adapt to and engage with changes and development in the field of education. It will also foster in teachers a willingness to seek out, respond to and participate in professional development opportunities.

Participants are prepared to:

  • Develop knowledge and expertise in literacy learning and instruction
  • Understand how to organize and apply their knowledge to work with all students they encounter
  • Develop the knowledge, attitudes and willingness to engage in on-going professional development to  support literacy programmes

Engage in self-reflection and assessment to enhance their roles in literacy development

Students focus on the Foundations of Education and Educational Theory and Professional Specialization Courses in the School of Education and pursue content courses in History and Archaeology in the Faculty of Humanities and Education and Sociology in the Faculty of Social Sciences.
