This course is designed to introduce students to the process of teaching and learning, and focuses on educators as reflective inquirers into professional practice. Through processes of observation, planning, organizing, monitoring and evaluating a range of teaching/ learning approaches the students, as Pre-Service Teachers (PSTs), will investigate the complex nature of teaching and learning. Pre-Service Teachers will examine and critique the physical, social and intellectual development and characteristics of students and how these may affect their learning. They will develop an understanding of research into how students learn and the implications for teaching. The course sits alongside a corequisite course (EEZED 1711 Professional Experience: Learning and Teaching), that involves a five day placement in a school setting, relevant to the education degree being studied, where PSTs will have the opportunity to observe teaching and working with small groups.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
