Toteutuksen valinnaiset suoritustavat

1) RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING
Any competence that corresponds to the learning outcomes of the course can be included in it through recognition and accreditation of prior learning. The starting point is competence-based thinking: what matters is your competence itself, not how and where you acquired it. The procedures for the recognition and accreditation of prior learning are Recognition of prior studies and Demonstration of competence.
Where to start:
At first you would need to go carefully through the objectives, contents and assignments of the course to evaluate if there would be some entity / several entities where you already have know-how and competence? If yes, think how you can demonstrate your competence (e.g. earlier certificates, individual essay, short research or development project at your workplace, report, portfolio). Within one week of the start of the course contact the responsible teacher kati.rintakorpi@laurea.fi to arrange a Zoom meeting where we will discuss and identify your competence and agree on the method of demonstrating your competence.

2) RECOGNITION OF WORK-BASED LEARNING
If you are working in ECEC at the same time that studying it would be possible to find an alternative way to complete the course or some part of it by recognizing what information and skills you can learn (or have already learned) at your workplace.
Where to start?
At first you would need to go carefully through the objectives, contents and assignments of the course to analyze if there would be some entity / several entities which you can learn at your work place?
If yes, think how you can learn those things in practice and how you can demonstrate your competence (e.g. essay, short research or development project at your workplace, report, portfolio).
Within one week of the start of the course contact the responsible teacher kati.rintakorpi@laurea.fi to arrange a Zoom meeting where we will discuss and identify your work situation, general and personal goals and agree on the method of learning and demonstrating your competence.

Sisältö ja sen jaksotus

In the course, you will actively reflect on your own activities as an educator in a diverse operating environment. You will get to know the learning community and how it is built together with children and families, taking diversity into account. In the Study Course, we approach inclusion through digital methods and pedagogical documentation. In the Study Course, we find perspectives on children's holistic well-being from the perspectives of inclusive early childhood education, multidisciplinary cooperation, and support for children and families.

The performance of the course consists of three entities:

2 credits Me on my way to become an expert on inclusion and diversity in early childhood education
4 credits Operational culture of inclusion and diversity (in-person teaching, assignments and group work)
4 credits Multidisciplinary cooperation (in-person teaching and project)

4 credits Operating culture of inclusion and diversity (in-person teaching, assignments and group work) is graded Passed-Failed
4 credits Multidisciplinary cooperation (in-person teaching and project) The project is evaluated numerically (rejected-1–5)

Assignments have a return period until the end of May 2023, and evaluations will be done in June 2023. If you need a faster evaluation due to graduation, it can be arranged separately (contact the teacher and send your assignments by May 15th).
