EPT442 Professional Experience 2 (8)


Professional experience is a foundational requirement of this degree and provides student teachers with the opportunity to develop skills studied in curriculum method and education discipline subjects. In this second placement of 30 days student teachers will further explore school dynamics, their own teaching practice and develop their knowledge of schools to start consolidating professional abilities in the classroom and professional connections with parents and carers and the wider school and professional community. The practicum is so designed that collaboration and feedback possibilities are scheduled on a daily basis where the Associate Teacher and the student teacher discuss lesson planning, classroom management and teaching practice. Assessment of the practicum is formative, recorded in a portfolio on a daily basis and presented and discussed with students in the middle and at the end of the practicum. The portfolio postings, based on the activities in the weekly study schedule, will provide evidence of the student's commitment to, and progression in developing competence in the seven standards of BOSTES.
