Professional and Educational Studies 2

15 points



This course builds upon TEPI331 Professional and Educational Studies 1. It is a learner focussed study with experiences and tasks that extend students' understandings towards becoming successful beginning teachers. The course incorporates the principles and practice of planning, assessment, evaluation and reporting and explores the links between professional practice experiences and established educational theory. Pedagogical models, curriculum integration, the diverse needs of children and learning environments are explored within these contexts. Students will experience, as well as learn about, authentic inquiry-based learning and associated pedagogies, and 'teaching as inquiry' models. These experiences will further develop participant's personal teaching philosophy. The course will prepare students for the associated Professional Practice course and also complement learning in other courses in the Graduate Diploma of Teaching and Learning (Primary).
