Curriculum of a non-traditional bachelor programme
The academic subjects, paired with the dynamic periods of the DNS teacher training, constitute the back bone and foundation of the teacher training programme. Thus, DNS offers a non-traditional bachelor of pedagogy..
One World University has developed a list of subjects, also called “anchor themes” which fits the practical and experienced based reality of the DNS programme. Practice, theory, experiences, community and outreach are rolled into one in these 20 subjects, including two specialisations. At the end of the fourth year, students write a bachelor monograph – or thesis.
Original and creative
The subjects of the teacher training programme are original and creatively composed. Some of the subjects are similar to regular subjects while others are born out of collective knowledge of former DNS teachers providing a solid knowledge of the world and the human condition. Together, these subjects tell the story of the teacher training programme at DNS. Since they are closely connected to each of the periods of the programme, they also support the learning processes by connecting practice and theory.
Let us present the 21 gems that are the subjects/anchor themes that constitute the theoretical framework of our unique non-traditional teacher training programme below:
*Starting from 2019, the DNS programme will last 4 years, to meet demands of the Ministry of Education in Mozambique. DNS is currently working with One World University to develop the extended curriculum.
