Year - 2018

This unit of study examines issues relevant to teaching in contemporary secondary schools. The unit consists of a series of lectures on issues such as making the transition to 'becoming a teacher', the role of popular culture in teacher identity, teaching standards, teacher professionalism, the changing construct of 'the good teacher', teacher beliefs, bullying in schools and classroom management. There is a strong reflective element in this unit of study and assessments require students to reflect on their life as learners, their transition to teacher education and their projected transition to teaching.
