Bachelor of Science with Education (BSCED)

Programme Description

The Bachelor of Science with Education programme takes a minimum of THREE (03) years and a maximum of FIVE (05) years divided into THREE SESSIONS (Trimester). The focus of this programme is to train effective science teachers in science syllabi and science pedagogy at Ordinary (O’) and Advanced (A’) Level secondary education as organised in the Ugandan Education System. It seeks to scaffold teacher trainees in evolving factual, conceptual, procedural and meta-cognitive knowledge forms advanced in the science disciplines. The graduates of the programme will thus be equipped with the scientific and investigative professional competencies and outlook to link schooling and their communities, as well as positively induce national development through science.

1.2 Mode of Delivery

The mode of delivery of the Program is through face-to-face lectures, online blended lessons, podcasts, active group discussions, tutorials, peer-to-peer tutoring, micro-teaching, fieldwork projects/outreach activities and research projects. Teaching and Learning Strategies will be highly interactive and learner-centred.

Several methods will be adopted including interactive lectures, group discussions and presentations, case studies, simulations, resource persons/guest speakers, field studies, child study projects portfolio/e-portfolio and material development, display, demonstrations and research.
