This micro-credential has been designed to complement the work delivered by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) to focus on developing teacher confidence, capability and expertise in the key concepts and topics covered in the Psychology syllabus. It offers subject-specific knowledge and skills needed to underpin effective and contemporary approaches to teaching and learning in the subject. This micro-credential introduces the social aspects of identity, to discover how social values and beliefs affect both the individual and group behaviours. The participant will also discover how sociology has influenced psychology, allowing new modes of research such as social and cultural psychology to emerge. The participant will be introduced to two issues in psychology: the development of attitudes towards others and the development of cross-cultural psychology. The participant will also examine methods of reducing the negative effects of adverse responses to newcomers in a social context.
This micro-credential provides a non-creditable micro-credential and digital badge which can be shared to your social networks and displayed in your professional portfolio.
There are no specific entry requirements to enrol in this micro-credential, however, it is designed for Secondary School teachers who expect to teach the QCAA Psychology General Senior Syllabus.
