Professional Experiences 4 (Primary) (EDUP4079)


This unit plays a significant role in supporting pre-service teachers into their next role of early career teacher. Pre-service teachers will extend their understanding of theory and research that influences their pedagogy, the selection of teaching strategies to support student learning and guide. Pre-service teachers will engage in a viva voce with their seminar leader where the focus will be to identify priority areas for individual professional learning. Pre-service teachers will then collaborate to develop and conduct individual investigations to broaden their understanding that may guide action during their final professional experience. EDUP4079 links directly to the professional learning model utilised in EDUP4017, with both units introducing pre-service teachers to professional learning approaches that may be drawn upon throughout their teaching careers.
