Professional Experience 4-Internship- is the final in a series of Professional Experiences that encourage and support students to develop and implement what they have learnt about quality teaching and reflective practice through stages that are sequential, cumulative and complementary. Students are able to explore professional teaching standards through planning, teaching and reflecting on learning experiences for a class (or classes) across an extended period. Students also continue to develop their personal and pedagogical philosophies of becoming a graduate teacher, and gradually assume the responsibilities and rights of a teacher both in the classroom and the wider educational context. During the period of internship, the intern will be responsible for half the colleague teacher's load- one third in Stage One and two thirds in Stage 2.
Professional Experience: this course has a compulsory 50 day professional experience component.
The University of Newcastle, the NSW Institute of Teachers and our education partners in schools and centres require that all students demonstrate a commitment to professional teaching practice by attending and engaging in lectures, tutorials and other activities provided by the university within our Teacher Education programs.
Students" professional commitment to teaching will be assessed by a 100% attendance requirement at sessions indicated as compulsory in the course outline. These lectures are compulsory because they present information that is critical to successful completion of the placement.
Attendance will be recorded on rolls available at the entrance to lecture theatres and/or tutorial rooms. Students should ensure that they allow sufficient time to be marked as present and provide adequate identification.
Students who arrive late and leave early without prior arrangement with the course coordinator will be deemed to have not completed the attendance requirement. If students leave the activity early and fail to identify themselves a second roll will be taken upon conclusion to the activity.
If a student fails to attend a compulsory session the student is responsible for contacting course coordinator within three (3) working days to request permission to complete a supplementary assessment task. This task will cover the same information that was in the missed session. These tasks will be pass/fail only and will not include written feedback. All replacement tasks are to be submitted at least two weeks before the commencement of the placement. Students who have not complied with any of these requirements will not be provided with a placement.
As a result of participating and successfully completing this course students should be able to:
1. explain and defend their philosophy of teaching and learning;
2. engage in reflective practice including lesson study, ethics and values;
3. demonstrate the planning, integration and evaluation of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment;
