This is the second subject in the Professional Studies strand of the Bachelor of Education, following ED2491 - Teaching for Learning 1. The focus of this subject will be the development of research informed practice to support productive and engaging learning and development in early childhood education and care settings for children aged from birth through to 8 years. Preservice teachers will develop a range of competencies in aligning curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and management to deliver quality learning and development experiences. Through work integrated learning, students will develop skills in collecting and analysing evidence to develop their own pedagogical practices to promote engaging and challenging learning for diverse learners across the three early childhood age ranges of birth to age two, ages three to five and ages six to eight years. Students are required to undertake five (5) days of professional experience.
