Course aim

To enable students to refine and apply their reflective, research and professional knowledge, understandings and skills as beginning teachers.

Course content

Students will develop increased autonomy and responsibility for their own learning outcomes and those of their pupils. Students will consider the connections between theory and practice and how this relates to the profession of teaching. Students will undertake an action research project based on understandings gained about themselves through critical reflection of their development against the AITSL National Professional Standards for Teachers. Students will apply their understandings with an emphasis on life-long learning within the profession. Students will have opportunities to develop their practice to enhance learner engagement and development.

Students will continue their development of a philosophy of teaching by drawing on university experiences and theoretical knowledge and linking this to practical application within preschool- and school-based settings. Students will prioritise effective professional relationships between pre-service teachers and all members of the school community to build this philosophy by incorporating a diverse range of perspectives on and understandings about teaching and learning.

Students will learn to prioritise curriculum planning, implementation and assessment to move towards their career entry. Students will develop the skills, knowledge and capacity to design, implement, assess and report on student learning which is fundamental to their success within collaborative teaching teams. Students will do this effectively within the contextual, legal, professional and ethical bounds of contemporary teaching.
