The Practising Professional: Primary
This course will introduce students to approaches for designing Integrated Curriculum, which they will implement using multi-level pedagogies during a 40 day block of full time professional experience in a Primary school setting. Students will also reflect upon and represent, within a teaching portfolio, their professional learning during the program. They will refine their personal philosophy of teaching; explore the legal, social and ethical responsibilities associated with being a member of the teaching profession; and consider their responsibility as participants in local, national and global teaching communities. Through the professional experience component in a primary school setting, they will have the opportunity to refine their capacity to employ effective inclusive teaching practices for personalising and individualising the learning for students in their care. A key focus during this course is on the students’ ability to gather evidence to demonstrate their developing capacity across all elements of the graduate Professional Teaching Standards. This course builds on students’ experiences with Teach Outreach activities undertaken in schools and the 20 day placement in the first semester of the second year of the Program. During their professional experience opportunity, students will attempt to demonstrate their attainment of Graduate Teacher Standards, and have an opportunity to engage in the full life of the school including student sport, playground supervision, grade/stage meetings and school activities and functions, as required. Students will have the opportunity to engage in professional learning about practice through a collegial professional learning community informed specifically by the NSW Quality Teaching model, known as Quality Teaching Rounds.
