In this unit, you will engage in the scholarship of learning and teaching in relation to your own teaching practice. You will be provided with opportunities for immersion in professional practice during a mentored practicum in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector that involves a cycle of mentoring and feedback to develop and improve teaching practices. You will take a scholarly approach to inform planning and teaching, as well as critical reflection and evaluation of your teaching practices. The unit requires you to link your teaching practice to the relevant curriculum framework and the need to understand your student cohort. In addition, the unit further develops your ability to work independently, be positively self-critical, actively reflect on current teaching practice in a scholarly manner, and encourages a constructivist approach to problem-solving skills.
