Program capacities provide a reflective focus for documenting and selfassessing learning. At frequent intervals throughout the program, participants and their mentors refer to the capacities to assess progress, to set new goals and to create direction for further learning in field studies. At the end of the program, each participant’s comprehensive portfolio includes a synthesis of learning and self-assessment of growth in these capacities, supported by evidence of learning. This program provides opportunities to develop these capacities:
Develop orientations of inquiry and critical reflection that foster understandings of your practice as a French language teacher.
Engage in interactive, inclusive and innovative practices informed by educational theories and philosophies.
Foster the development of holistic and Indigenous approaches to learning and teaching within the classroom, school, and community (including the French-speaking community).
Create collaborative professional learning communities that support equity, diversity and ethical relationships in local and global contexts.
Contribute to an awareness of issues pertaining to French education in BC.
Address social, moral and ethical issues of inclusive education in French.
