This unit incorporates a 15-day Professional Experience and continues students' development as reflective practitioners. This unit will focus on pre-service teachers planning for effective learning, communicating effectively with their students, and maintaining a safe and challenging learning environment through the use of classroom management skills (Australian Professional Standards for Teachers, Elements 3 and 4). It examines various ways in which the concepts of curriculum, evaluation and quality teaching have been defined in the current literature. The phases of planning, development, implementation and evaluation in developing learning activities and teaching sequences will be examined along with the importance of reflective practices, building on the initial discussions in EDUP 1002 in Year One. Students will develop an understanding of the interrelationship between quality teaching dimensions and management of the classroom learning community. Students will demonstrate their understanding and expertise of quality teaching and learning principles through peer teaching and during their professional experience in schools.
