Topic description

This topic provides opportunities for students to analyse and synthesise the senior years' curriculum. Using inquiry processes, students are supported to identify and develop concepts, skills and positive attitudes towards senior years teaching and learning. The topic is designed to engage students with the processes involved in planning, implementing and evaluating senior years teaching and learning programs. The topic emphasises the pre-service teachers' acquisition of subject specialisation disciplinary and pedagogical knowledge.

Educational aims

This topic aims to:

  • Enhance student confidence, knowledge and skills in senior years learning and teaching
  • Enable students to synthesise an appropriate teaching and learning program for a subject specialisation in the senior years
  • Enhance students' personal approach to senior years teaching based on their critical analysis of practical experience as well as in the light of a range of theoretical perspectives
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Plan, analyse and critique a balanced, sequential teaching and learning program in the senior years
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of current research findings and methods related to the senior years of schooling
  3. Possess in-depth, current knowledge and an integrated understanding of the content, context and processes of learning and teaching in the senior years of schooling

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.


If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
