This course is the third in a suite of courses designed to enable pre-service teachers (PSTs) to critically attend to, participate in and experience, the many facets of professional engagement in teaching. PSTs create and experience a professional learning community where learning is enhanced through social processes, dialogue and personal reflection. Communication will take place on campus and in online environments. In small groups guided by a learning mentor, PSTs will critically examine teaching and learning experiences in schools or early childhood settings and make complex connections to prior learning. They will focus on bigger picture issues such as the emotional work of teachers, the changing culture of schooling and school improvement issues as well as their own personal questions, investigations and insights. Pre-service teachers will prepare an evidence-based professional portfolio that will form the basis of their assessment and will receive feedback from multiple sources. They will also learn how to apply for teaching positions in schools or early childhood settings.

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
