MASIKT-PRA01 Teaching Practice 1. Year - 1-7 Master

Course description for academic year 2017/2018

Contents and structure

Practice will be relevant to and integrated in all subjects and should be viewed as a learning arena equivalent to teaching at the university college. All students will teach subjects that they have been taught, while the practical periods are also intended to provide experience of the totality of the subjects that pupils encounter.


The practical training will be supervised, evaluated and varied. Supervision and evaluation of students in practical training is a shared area of responsibility for the subject teachers in teacher training.

First year practice in the master's should be viewed in context with the practical teaching in the primary and secondary school teacher training and is approved as 4th year practice for primary school teacher 1-7.

Practice must cover the following topic content:

- The teacher's rights and duties, teaching at organisational level and in professional communities

- School and pupil democracy, parents' and pupils' rights

- Collaboration with parents, PPT and other parties

- Quality systems as a tool for learning and school development

- Collaboration with the local entrepreneurial community

- Transition between year stages

- Research-based knowledge as the basis for change and development in school

Teaching methods

Practice teaching will form the basis for a reflection process in which the students must explain their choices with regard to planning, implementation and evaluation of teaching and learning. This will be done by means of the students' use of individual written practice folders.


The most important thing about the practice folders is that they contain reflection about the student's own learning in practice.
