This course is designed to enhance knowledge and skills related to the effective teaching of literacy and numeracy across subject areas in secondary schools. It begins with the exploration of personal literacy and numeracy experiences and examines the discourses and vocabulary that exist within subject areas. PSTs learn how to use a range of strategies for teaching literacy and numeracy, including the use of ICT. PSTs critically examine the use of ICT in schools and learn about the use of ethical and safe practices. They learn about, trial and evaluate approaches which develop young people as multi-literate, critical thinkers equipped with 21st century skills.

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
