In the program you will take some courses that are common to all education programs, as well as courses specific to Technological Education such as:
You have the flexibility of selecting an elective course to tailor your program to your interests. These courses will introduce to new ideas and practices, and ask you to critically reflect on how you will practice as an educator. Our faculty has a technological education shop specifically designed for project development and learning about the teaching of technological education.
Practicum placements allow you to work alongside other education professionals in secondary school classrooms. The practicum portion of the program is longer than at many other faculties of education.
In the Fall and first part of the Winter a regular in-school practicum is completed in a secondary school.
An alternative practicum is required in the second part of the Winter term. This is done in a non-traditional educational setting, to broaden knowledge and understanding of education. Placements can be done anywhere in the world as long as it relates to the program. Examples of previous placements include tourist resorts, community colleges, radio and television corporations, and many others in business and industry. Guidance and support will be given in selecting your placement.
Program graduates are eligible for certification from the Ontario College of Teachers in their Broad-based technology area.
Graduates are engaged in a variety of careers ranging from full-time classroom teaching to full or part-time work in business and industry.
