In this unit, you will engage with the school community and key stakeholders in education in a productive way to achieve optimal personal, social and academic outcomes during a twenty five day placement in a secondary school. You will examine and critique theory and skills for effective communication, negotiation, and conflict resolution as applicable to learning environments and teacher-student interactions. The ethical tensions that arise in learning environments and ways of dealing with these dilemmas is also covered. The unit also involves focused observation of learning environments, design and implementation of pedagogical strategies, and evaluation of learning outcomes. Pre-service teachers analyse the nexus between teacher pedagogy and teacher-student dialogue in order to engage students in thinking that involves extension, refinement and meaningful use of knowledge. You will be required to apply knowledge learnt in discipline courses to design and implement learning experiences cognisant of student prior knowledge. You must pass all assessment tasks to pass this unit.
