Subject outline

In this subject, students reflect on their learning journey as a pre-service teacher and as a future teacher. Students create reflective content and select from existing digital resources to construct a 'show' portfolio, presenting their learning journey, as they move towards becoming a qualified teacher. This portfolio provides students with the opportunity to present their philosophy, skills and experiences in Early Childhood Education for a professional context to a external audience.
