  • Pedagogical Values Micro-Sessions Hosted by CTET

    RRu students

    Traditional Welcome

    The CTET Pedagogical Values Micro-Session Program reflects CTET’s commitment to addressing values-based components that are relevant to teaching at RRU, and represents a continuation of past offerings with this focus, such as the Living Our Model Series. Specifically relevant to teaching and learning at RRU are the pedagogical values that form the foundation of the RRU Learning, Teaching, and Research Model (LTRM), namely: applied and authentic, caring and community-based, and transformational.

      The Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies (CTET) is pleased to present the first values based micro-session that will focus on the arc of Care and Community-Based of the LTRM. The theme for the session is “Co-creation: Students as partners” and the facilitators are Dr. Jean Slick and Dr. Sophia Palahicky. This theatre style, one hour session will include sharing, large group discussions, and reflective activities.

      Pedagogical values refer to the worldviews, beliefs, perspectives, and biases about teaching and learning that underpin our specific educational practices (Palahicky et al., 2017). In other words, they are the belief systems that inform the decisions that we make at the micro and macro level of our teaching, from how we design learning experiences to how we interact and engage with learners. Some examples of pedagogical values include diversity, social justice, and community.
