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 a further introduction to school life through workshops and 10 days of school visits. Observation of practice will be provided to enable the opportunity for personal development and growth. Furthermore, practice in the design and implementation of lessons will also be a feature of this course. Therefore the focus of this course is on the development of lesson plans with further development of observation skills and understanding the importance of communication in a school context. This course is developmental and builds on EDUC1715 and provides a basis for the subsequent courses, EDUC2714, EDUC3714 and EDUC4714. The course will also build on and incorporate knowledge developed across Years 1 and 2 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 Registration Form when directed

2. Wait for email 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.
