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 the decision making processes for connecting teacing and learning. Pre-service teachers will engage in a viva voce identify priority areas for individual professional learning with a major focus on assessment. Pre-service teachers will then develop and conduct individual investigations to broaden their understanding of assessment practices that will guide action during their final professional experience. This unit of study 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.
