Pedagogy and Professional Practice 1 (EDSE2001)


This unit of study explores how teachers become more aware of their professional practices and develop and refine pedagogical knowledge. Students examine the evolving roles of teachers in the classroom, identify best teaching practices and analyse and critique a range of teaching styles, methods and strategies (including technologies) that aim to meet the needs of students. Students learn about the roles of teachers in classrooms and examine their own emerging perceptions of self as teacher.
