LIMITED offering available only to RATEP students - [36110, 109310 Majors BED-RA4, BED-RA3]. External offering available only to BEd (Early Childhood Education).

This professional development subject uses blended, simulated and scenario-based learning approaches to introduce students to key concepts of effective learning and teaching and how these might be applied in a variety of settings including Indigenous and rural/regional for children from birth to 18 years. Through these approaches, students come to learn the value of a range of theoretical frameworks relating to learning, curriculum, pedagogy and classroom management. The subject is structured around the six themes of: Learning about learners; Planning for learning; Pedagogy; Safe and supportive learning environments; Reflecting on teachers' work; and Teacher well-being. These themes are further developed in subsequent professional development subjects in the course.

Learning Outcomes

  • design lessons and learning experiences for diverse contexts including Indigenous and rural/regional which: meet the needs of individual learners; employ a range of pedagogical strategies and; provide intellectually challenging learning experiences;
  • critique lesson designs and pedagogies (including play-based, inquiry-based, problem-based, direct instruction) by drawing on theoretical perspectives and illustrative empirical data;
  • critically evaluate a range of strategies and microskills for creating and maintaining safe and supportive learning environments at the classroom level;
  • demonstrate the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and for BEd(ECE) students the Early Years Learning Framework at a developed level;
  • reflect on teacher well-being, in particular, ethics and resilience.
