Course description

Teaching is a multi-faceted profession. Becoming a teacher requires commitment and dedication to lifelong learning and personal growth through reflection. This course provides an introduction to school life through workshops and school visits. Observing practice and learning from others provides the opportunity for personal development and growth. Therefore the focus of this course is on the development of observation skills and the importance of communication in a school context. This course is developmental and links to EDUC2712, EDUC2714, EDUC3714 and EDUC4714, providing a basis for the subsequent courses. The course will also build on and incorporate knowledge developed across the first year of the Bachelor of Education program.

As this course contains a professional experience component in a school it has been permission listed so that academic and Blue Card status checks can be completed prior to enrolment.

To obtain permission to enrol in this course:

1. Complete and submit the Professional Experience Form when directed

2. Wait for email of notification of the outcome of your request

3. If accepted, log-in to mySI-net and add the course to your enrolment as soon as you receive the email or as soon as enrolments open, whichever occurs first.

You will not be added to the list of students requiring a placement until you have added the course to your enrolment, therefore it is advisable to seek permission as soon as you receive notification that the Professional Experience Preference form is available. Late enrolment (any time up to 4 weeks prior to, or any time after, commencement of the course) may not be accepted.
