Student experience

Innovative approaches to teaching

The School of Education is committed to embracing new technologies and teaching methods to help develop classroom-ready graduates. We understand the importance of hands-on learning to ensure our students are familiar with how classroom environments operate before they enter the real world.

Professional Experience Unit

The PEU manages the teaching professional experience placements that are compulsory for students enrolled in many School of Education programs. These placements play a critical role in ensuring that our graduates have the prerequisite knowledge, skills and dispositions for a successful career in teaching.
