About this Unit
This unit is only available to Education students. Pre-service teacher education students need extensive and purposeful experience in diverse educational settings. This unit provides students with the opportunity to broaden their professional experience in a range of alternative educational settings within and beyond schools. Professional Experience 3 is based on the general principle of broadening and deepening Student Teachers' understanding of the issues confronting the wider education community. The more informed the teacher is about these educational issues, the more effective that teacher can be in their own classroom. To facilitate this understanding, the teacher needs to explore how learning and teaching are conducted in a variety of settings. Underpinning Professional Experience 3 is the recognition that teachers often only see a limited part of the total curriculum and schooling process, and that students will benefit from working collaboratively with those both within and outside the school settings.
