Professional Experiences 3 (Primary) (EDUP3007)


This unit of study and school-based 20 day professional experience builds on the introductory unit Language, The Learner and Schools in year 1 and Beginning Professional Experience in year 2 of the program. This unit moves to a more complex interpretation of the learning experience by focusingusing effective assessment and feedback for the diverse learning needs of students. Students will develop their knowledge on how students learn by planning teaching and learning opportunities through assesing students' needs. Pre-service teachers will apply this knowledge to the students they will teach on their 20 day professional experience. Throughout the unit of study, the emphasis will be on employing this developing knowledge of students' learning in the planning, assessing and reporting of effective learning outcomes. It continues students' development as reflective practitioners and focuses particularly on Standards 1, 2 and 5 of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
