EEB106 Community Cultural Education Program (0)

This subject provides an opportunity for teacher education students to engage in community educational programs and experience educational opportunities that are linked to wider social issues and contexts. Teacher education students are required to complete 24 hours of community based service learning in an educational setting catering for adolescents or pre-adolescents other than a classroom. Students will broaden and deepen their understandings of issues confronting the wider education community and gain a greater awareness of the needs of diverse students through participation in a community educational program eg. holiday STEM programs, youth camps, PCYC, Sport and Recreation camps, Robocup, community literacy programs. Alternatively students may meet subject requirements through the completion of an international placement registered through CSU Global or an authorised cultural immersion program. The Community Cultural Education Program will provide teacher education students with the opportunity to develop respectful relationships and increase their familiarity with community based organisations, resources, policies and strategies which will potentially improve their professional abilities and broaden their professional knowledge and practice as a teacher.
