Professional Experience 2 – Minor 2

This unit provides an opportunity for students to consolidate and integrate the knowledge, skills and attitudes previously developed in EXP210. The unit focuses on meaningful and authentic learning tasks and contexts, giving specific attention to the design, development, implementation, student assessment and evaluation of units of work. The unit focuses on the process-driven and critically reflective nature of curriculum work, applying this to the specific needs of the secondary school context. Students will learn integrative processes and practices and cross-curricular priorities and reflect upon a range of disciplinary approaches to curriculum. Other skills will also be embedded including communication with parents/carers and a community focused approach. Students should develop increasing autonomy in the classroom and take greater responsibility for observing, planning, teaching, and assessing and reporting through the duration of their professional experience.
