Effective instruction requires the application of professional knowledge about learning theory, curriculum content and the teaching strategies of a specific discipline or learning area. In this capstone unit, you will apply content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge to design teaching and learning experiences that develop general capabilities underpinning the curriculum framework and have a positive impact on students’ understanding of key curriculum concepts in an area of specialisation from your course of study. You will create resources that illustrate exemplary practice in classroom and remote learning contexts and share these resources in a community of practice that replicates the collaborative processes that underpin continuous improvement in the teaching profession. Through a process of self-evaluation and reflection on your experiences in this unit and across your course of study, you will highlight your professional strengths and illustrate your preparedness for employment as a graduate teacher through the creation of a portfolio that supports the employment application process.
