In the final semester of the course of study this topic is designed to provide students with the opportunity to reflect on the knowledge developed in this professional degree while drawing on the contexts of their personal life experiences and knowledge and understandings from their earlier studies. Students will be challenged to investigate significant contemporary educational issues and to use their educational and curriculum knowledge to explain and justify the positions they adopt in relation to these issues. This process will assist students to explore and make explicit their personal professional philosophy of education. In turn this will be used by students as they explore the nature of education systems and the profession they are preparing to enter.
This topic is designed to:
assist students to bring their life experiences, educational and curriculum knowledge to bear on the investigation of contemporary educational issues
introduce students to procedures that can be used to critically analyse educational systems and selected contemporary educational issues
enable students to use these procedures to propose and justify policy positions and/or practices relevant to the selected issues
facilitate further exploration of teaching as a profession and introduce students to significant features of the early years of teaching
Expected learning outcomes
In this topic students will:
articulate a personal professional philosophy of teaching and education by synthesising and critically evaluating relevant beliefs, knowledge and skills
analyse and critique education systems, policy and practice related to selected educational problems and issues
explain and justify their recommendations for action in relation to the selected educational problem or issue
adopt their roles as beginning teachers and establish a foundation professional portfolio
examine key features of the process of entering the teaching profession and of the early years of teaching
