This professional practice subject uses blended, simulated and work-integrated learning approaches to develop preservice teacher knowledge of curriculum and pedagogy for diverse learners. Pre-service teachers also explore how classroom management is used to support and foster engagement and achievement in a variety of Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary educational settings. The subject is structured around the enactment of the reflective teaching cycle. This cycle is further developed in subsequent professional practices subjects in the course. This subject includes 5 days of Professional Experience.
