Subject outline

In this subject pre-service teachers will investigate the process of developing informed curriculum in early childhood and primary settings. Pre-service teachers will engage with the content and values inherent in the EYLF and the Australian Curriculum. Consideration will be given to the central role of the learner in developing curriculum. Drawing from appropriate educational theories and practices in education, preservice teachers will frame their understanding of curriculum as a cultural broker and investigate a range of pertinent approaches valuable in informing curriculum development. An emphasis will be placed on gathering information to inform curriculum, positioning the learner and context for learning as the base for curriculum decision making. A reflective planning cycle will be used as a model for planning in a diverse range of contexts.
