Subject outline

In Developing Teacher Readiness, students are introduced to the professional roles of the teacher, learn about the cognitive stages of designing lesson plans based on the Victorian curriculum and develop understandings of pedagogy (PoLT).  Students are also introduced to the basic legal obligations and responsibilities of teachers (i.e. code of conduct, duty of care, mandatory reporting etc.). This subject prepares students for placement in schools and educational institutions where students gain further experience planning lessons and seeking constructive feedback.  As students build towards half day classroom control towards the end of the 15 days professional placement.
