Course aim

To build on students as pre-service teachers' prior professional experiences in education sites and schools and to prepare future graduates for the challenges and opportunities of teaching in rural/regional communities.

Course content

Students will further develop their knowledge of the pressure faced by rural schools to attract and retain quality teachers. Students will re-examine the teacher education curriculum and focus on ways to prepare teachers more effectively for rural and regional communities. Students will also develop further understanding of rural teacher identity, rural students' lives and the impact this has on their learning. Students will obtain the skills to be school ready by taking a whole school focus: understanding rural teacher identity and teachers’ work.
