Hello Year 2 Teacher Candidates,
I hope you’re enjoying practicum!
The 5008 Transition to Professional Practice (T2P) course continues throughout Year 2. Again this year, it will be scheduled on Tuesday’s from 12:30 to 3:30 and each session is mandatory unless noted otherwise. We are currently scheduling sessions based on the feedback you provided last year*.
New this year, we will be communicating T2P events in two ways:
- TheTeacherCandidate blog – events will be posted under “Courses” > “Year 2 5008 T2P” each Wednesday. Subscribe to the blog to receive update alerts.
- OWL 5008 T2P course site – event details will be posted each Wednesday. Details can be found under “Schedule of Events” and “Calendar”. (Teacher candidates will be added to OWL course sites a few days before classes start)
Share your experience
For the October 31 T2P session, we will be holding a Teacher Candidate Conference for both Year 1 and Year 2 Teacher Candidates. As second year candidates, you’re invited to submit a one hour workshop proposal! Please email your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org, including a workshop title, description and justification. Proposals will be accepted until Monday, October 16.
Choose the OCT workshop
The Ontario College of Teachers will be delivering a T2P presentation on Tuesday, November 7. They have a number of sessions to choose from – tell us which you prefer! Votes will be received until Monday, October 16.
