COURSE DESCRIPTION

QRTA launched its pre-service Teacher Education Professional Diploma (TEPD) in 2016. The development of this Diploma has been supported by the University College London (UCL) – Institute of Education.

The diploma prepares teachers for the challenges of the 21st century classroom, preparing future educators to treat classrooms as more than mere space, but as the birthplaces of innovation, leadership, intellectual curiosity, and civic participation among youth. TEPD is currently playing a major role in supporting Jordan’s education reform agenda by preparing youth to become teachers.

The Teacher Education Professional Diploma (TEPD) is a 24-credit hour, nine-month accredited diploma offered by the Queen Rania Teacher Academy QRTA and awarded by the University of Jordan. The Diploma combines theory and an extensive practicum experience for future teachers of Early Grades (1 – 3) and grades 4 and above.

TEPD is awarded by the University of Jordan and is accredited by the Ministry of Education. The development of this Diploma has been supported by UCL – Institute of Education.

Module 1: Pedagogies for Learning and Teaching.

Understanding of the concepts of learning objectives, learning outcomes, aims for learning, appropriate activities and their sequencing as well as links to assessment.

Module 2: Subject Didactics

Examine and analyze examples from other jurisdictions and contexts particularly in relation to planning in their subject area or in Early Grades curriculum, and design teaching materials and resources for use within the classroom.

Module 3: School Experience

Students are expected to plan episodes of learning with the school mentor and gradually build up to teaching and evaluating their classroom practice as they take on more lessons.

Aspiring teachers have the opportunity to learn, practice, and engage in dialogue with great thinkers in education, as well as flourish within a community of shared practice, experience, and passion for the art of teaching.
