In this capstone unit, you will critically reflect on the nature of teaching as a complex profession. You will draft a philosophical framework in relation to teaching and learning and test it by analysing the extent to which it supports you to discharge your professional responsibilities in educational contexts. You are encouraged to prepare for the final placement in schools by using the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers; Codes of Ethics and Conduct that apply to the profession; and an understanding of the influence of the broader macro socio-political and policy environment affecting educational contexts to develop a framework of critical questions. These questions are used to guide reflection in, on and for action throughout the placement for Professional Practice 4. At the conclusion of your placement, you will select one or more written reflections and apply an ethical decision-making framework to the central incident/s to develop and articulate a personal professional philosophy of teaching illustrating how it shapes your professional practice.
