About this Unit
In 2016 this unit replaced by 102094 Secondary Professional Practice 2. Professional Experience II is the second Professional Experience unit of the Master of Teaching (Secondary). It is designed to extend students' learning experiences in classrooms, to such an extent that they are able to demonstrate the competencies expected from a new teacher. Apart from the basic teaching skills, these competencies include being able to incorporate broader educational perspectives such as technology, literacy, social justice, learning theories and assessment strategies in their teaching. The unit focuses on preparing students for the classroom by exploring the issues involved in broadening their perspective in terms of student options and effective pedagogy. The desired effect of this exploration of teaching style will be to introduce the concept of professional development through reflective practice. In this way, the Professional Experience undertaken during this unit will cohere with and enhance the pre-service teacher education student's perspective on the theory and practice of teaching and learning in schools.
