About this Unit
In 2021 this unit replaced by 102793 - Professional Experience 2. Students will participate in a 30 day professional experience set in the context of their future profession and under the supervision of qualified teachers. Students will be prepared by exploring issues involved in understanding the needs of learners within specific school and classroom contexts, and will design and teach experiences in ways that will enhance student engagement and student learning outcomes as well as address the Australian Professional Standards for Graduate Teachers (Standards 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7). The unit also gives students opportunities to reflect on the processes involved, and refine their competencies as beginning teachers under the supervision of qualified teachers. The unit links theory and practice and enables students to construct new knowledge and new ways of practice as part of their transition into the teaching profession.
