This course, divided in two parts, prepares students to be teacher trainers (initial training) by closely coupling together construction of a professionnal identity and the developement of abilities with regards to professionnal didactics. The contents of this first part are devoted to the reflexive apprenticeship : - legal framework and practical teaching profession context; - concepts and referencies linked to the identity construction and the development of appropriate skills.

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

  • To master contextual information as well as the main concepts ;
  • to train onself to accompagny futur teachers in their professional practice and develop competencies to be a refexive companion;
  • to conceptualize the primary macro-ability of a teacher trainer : the accompagnying.
