About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This multidisciplinary unit seeks to redefine and inform practice about what it means to be a teacher in the 21st century. Students will need to develop unique skills and understanding necessary for creating, sustaining and expanding communities of practice within and beyond classrooms. Through an examination of relevant literature connected with local and global networks, students will build personal leadership capacity and understanding of what is required to effect change, leadership and innovation in teaching. Learning outcomes are based on learning about leadership within an established community of practice. Students will collect evidence in a learning portfolio to demonstrate they meet the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at the graduate level. The learning portfolio builds on requirements of 102086 Designing Teaching and Learning and the units throughout the Master of Teaching (Secondary). The final submission of the reflective learning portfolio provides evidence of classroom readiness.
