In this unit you will extend your professional knowledge and skills through tutorials, workshops and a kindergarten placement comprising a 25-day placement. This includes 5 single day visits and a 20 day block placement. You will participate in tutorials to build both theoretical and practical knowledge of the strategies that teachers use to create learning environments underpinned by responsive relationships with children and that support wellbeing, belonging, and learning. Additionally, you will analyse the impact of different approaches to classroom management/guiding behaviour on student learning and apply your understanding of legislation and principles that inform how educators support children to manage their own behaviour and respond appropriately to the behaviour of others. You will apply knowledge gained from curriculum and early childhood units you have studied to plan, implement, respond to and evaluate learning experiences that incorporate the principles and pedagogies outlined in Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (DEEWR, 2009). Pedagogies that support children's engagement with, and learning in, literacy and numeracy will be implemented during the professional placement. Using ICTs with young children to improve learning are also employed in the placement. You will monitor your professional learning through critical reflection, and will select and evaluate evidence to add to your ePortfolio to demonstrate selected focus areas of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
