This is the students' first practice period, consisting of 20 days in upper secondary school in the autumn and 10 days at lower secondary level in the autumn.
The goals for this practice period are to provide students with knowledge and experience in the management of learning processes and in the management of learning and development work in an individual and a group perspective
During the practice period, students will observe, plan, implement and assess their own teaching, receive guidance, participate in various meetings and carry out other tasks at the practice schools.
The academic responsibility for the practice period lies with the practice schools and the academic communities in pedagogy and vocational didactics at the UiA. Students may not do teaching practice at their own workplace
The teaching practice must be supervised and have a total duration of 30 days. The main emphasis will be on individual practice in upper secondary school, but the students can also practice in pairs or small groups. For teaching practice in lower secondary school, the whole period can be completed in pairs or groups.
Each student will work 40 hours per week on average during the practice period. Of this, 8-12 teaching hours per week will be allocated to individual instruction during the practice period. As a main rule, the student will receive an additional 3 - 4 hours of guidance per week. The teaching practice is compulsory and requires 100% attendance. It is not permitted to take compensatory time off or to work during the practice period.
The teaching practice may take place anywhere in the Agder region. Students may not do teaching practice at their own workplace during the first year of practice.
Upon completion of the teaching practice, an individual written assessment is given with the grade of passed/failed. The assessment is made based on the learning outcome and given criteria for the practice period
Students must present the assessment report to their teaching practice supervisor at the beginning of a new practice period
