Description

This course will introduce Initial Teacher Education Students (ITES) to approaches for designing integrated curriculum that they will implement using multi-level pedagogies during a 40-day block of full time professional experience in a school setting. During their professional experience opportunity, ITES will demonstrate their attainment of Graduate Teacher Standards and have an opportunity to engage in student sport, playground supervision, faculty/grade/stage meetings and school activities and functions, as required.

ITES will reflect upon, and represent within a teaching portfolio, their professional learning during the program with a particular focus on one of the program’s overall learning themes. They will refine their personal philosophy of teaching, explore the legal, social and ethical responsibilities associated with being a member of the teaching profession and consider their responsibility as participants in local, national and global teaching communities.
