Credit points: 15

Subject outline


In this subject pre-service teachers develop their knowledge of the ethical professional practice of teachers within current national and state policy

and legal framework sin relation to future directions in education. Pre-service teachers expand their understanding of the professional roles and responsibilities of teachers in contemporary Australian schools and communities. They investigate ethical, moral and legal dilemmas in relation to compliance with policy, legal obligations and ethical codes of teachers practice. Students critique and synthesise the connections between education policy, professional ethics, standards and responsibilities of teachers, including community engagement, legal and organisational requirements and professional development imperatives. Pre-service teachers will develop understandings of professional networks and how knowledge and practices are informed by broader communities; including parents and carers, legal andorganisational communities, and professional development structures.
