About this Unit
This unit is the first Professional Experience unit of the Master of Teaching (Primary) and Master of Teaching (Secondary) programs. This unit incorporates a 30-day placement in a NSW school. It is designed to introduce all students to the philosophical, ethical, practical and pedagogical perspectives of becoming a teacher in diverse, contemporary educational settings. The aim of this unit is to enable you to proactively engage in real-life educational settings to learn and enhance your professional development as a future teacher. This unit gives you the opportunity to explore the relationship between practical and theoretical knowledge of teaching. This unit will provide you with an opportunity to explore a range of learning activities that occur inside and outside the classrooms, and the roles of the teaching and non-teaching staff within the school. Through ongoing observation, supervised teaching and contribution in the wider school community, the unit ensures you work towards the achievement of the national standards for a graduate teacher.
