To equip future Health and Physical Education teachers with the expertise and associated knowledge and skills to fulfil their official teaching and learning responsibilities. This subject intends to explore advanced teaching in health and physical education, as well as explore the pedagogy and practice of service learning. In ED4493, preservice teachers will integrate and extend on their discipline and curriculum knowledge and skills to plan innovative learning experiences for children/adolescents, apply technology in an engaging and learning-oriented manner, and develop assessment items and make judgements. Preservice teachers will develop and implement pedagogical initiatives that support learning beyond the official health and physical education curriculum through meaningful community service (minimum 50 hours). The service learning projects will aim to strengthen communities with a focus on activities that promote social responsibility. Preservice teachers will explore a range of learning partnerships with community agencies, industry and business, preparing them for their role with children/students and in the wider community.
|It is assumed that students will have strong academic literacy capabilities; appropriate knowledge and skills to engage critically with texts and tasks; capacity for reflection and effective professional and interpersonal communication skills; the ability to work in new settings and contribute in meaningful ways; capacity for time-management and strong organisational skills.|
