EEB441 The Reflective Practitioner (8)

This subject is designed for students with some teaching experience in the adult and vocational sector; such as completion of the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, or have been teaching informally (for example in a non-RTO community setting), or undertaken a supervised teaching placement as part of a formal course of study. The subject develops a broader and deeper understanding of teaching and assessment practice through wider reading and critical assessments. It does this through seeking to develop or enhance the students' ability to critically reflect on their own practice within a framework of applicable lifelong learning perspectives.
