Course aim

Professional Experience 2: Curriculum and Pedagogy (Early Childhood) aims to support pre-service teachers to connect their developing understanding of theory with their practice in a junior primary school context. Professional Experience 2 aims to support preservice teachers to draw upon their previous experiences and understandings from the childcare context in developing their identity as an early childhood teacher in the junior primary school context.

Course content

Professional Experience 2: Curriculum and Pedagogy (Early Childhood) supports pre-service teachers to develop understandings regarding the requirements of teachers’ work within the junior primary context. This requires developing knowledge of the planning cycle using the Australian Curriculum and/or the Early Years Learning Framework to guide pedagogical decision-making. Play-based and inquiry pedagogies are encouraged to engage young children in the junior primary context as well as developing knowledge and skills in creating and managing a positive and safe learning environment. Professional Experience 2 supports the development of skills and dispositions to engage in critical reflection and reflexive practice as well as establishing professional relationships with children, parents/caregivers, colleagues and staff in the junior primary school context.
