About this Unit
The Professional Experience unit 'Professional Practice 1' is designed to introduce student teachers to the philosophical, ethical, practical and pedagogical perspectives of becoming a teacher in the primary school context. The unit requires student teachers to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes necessary to begin teaching. As part of this process their professional experience will incorporate a continuous process of self-reflection, self-awareness and the capacity to modify and adjust teaching practice to best meet the needs of all students. The professional experience aims to facilitate the development of teacher education students as reflective practitioners who possess deeply-held commitments to quality education for students and high order communication competencies.
