In Professional Practice 2, pre-service teachers extend their professional knowledge and skills through tutorials, workshops and a school placement comprising 10 day visits during the term and a 15-day block placement at the end of the term. Students participate in tutorials to build both theoretical and practical knowledge of the strategies teachers use to create positive, organised classroom environments that support wellbeing, engagement and learning. They analyse the impact of different approaches to classroom management on student learning and apply their understanding of motivation, relationship-building and engagement to plan proactively for the safety, support, inclusion and self-regulation of all learners during the school placement. Students apply knowledge gained from curriculum courses they have studied to plan, implement and evaluate lesson sequences that incorporate a range of teaching strategies and resources with a particular focus on literacy, numeracy and the use of ICTs to improve student outcomes. Students monitor their professional learning through critical reflection and by selecting evidence of their practice that demonstrates focus areas of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers to add to their e-portfolios.
