Professional Experience A (EDSE3073)


Professional Experience is a core part of the professional preparation of teachers. It provides students with opportunities to develop their teaching skills and professional understandings. It is a pivotal opportunity for beginning teachers to experiment with, and to implement, a wide range of strategies and pedagogy that they have acquired during their university-based courses. This unit of study provides students with the opportunity to undertake a 20-day professional experience in secondary schools, enabling them to explore, enact and reflect upon the links between the theory and practice of their chosen profession.
