This course is designed to provide pre-service teachers (PSTs) with insights into the relationship between effective teaching and practitioner inquiry. PSTs will recognise the importance of inquiring into their own teaching as a way of engaging in professional learning and will become familiar with methods for conducting inquiries. PSTs are expected to frame a practitioner inquiry that they will undertake in the companion course Inquiry into Practice 2. Through this course PSTs will understand the dispositions activated through practitioner inquiry, how practitioner inquiry can improve student learning, and what ethical practitioner inquiry involves. PSTs will examine how an inquiry into practice can include a focus on their area of specialisation.

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
