EPT433 Professional Experience 2 (8)

Professional experience is a foundational requirement of this degree and provides teacher education students with the opportunity to develop skills studied in curriculum method and education discipline subjects. In this second placement of up to 30 days, teacher education students will explore school practices and develop their knowledge of teaching and learning to establish professional abilities in the classroom and professional connections with parents and carers and the wider school and professional community. The placement is designed so that collaboration and feedback possibilities are scheduled on a regular basis where the supervising teachers and the teacher education student discuss lesson planning, classroom management and teaching practice. Assessment of the placement is formative and discussed with teacher education students in the middle and at the end of the placement. The portfolio provides evidence of the student's commitment to, and progression in developing competence in the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
