In Professional Practice 1 you will be introduced to the teaching profession and work-integrated learning in educational settings through tutorial workshops and a placement comprising 15 days of practical experience under the guidance of a supervising teacher. The placement will take the form of a 3 week block period of assessable practice at the end of the term. During the placement, you will apply knowledge gained throughout the first year to practise the skills of planning, teaching, managing the learning environment, and assessing and recording student learning. You will be assessed against the relevant focus areas of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers by your supervising teacher/s. You will maintain professional records of your practice in the form of a working portfolio and compile evidence of your demonstration of aspects of the Standards in a portfolio of evidence. A major emphasis of this course is the development of the disposition for ongoing professional learning through reflection on the professional role and responsibilities of teachers and evaluation of effective teaching practice to improve student learning.
