Synopsis

Students will engage with the design and delivery of learning experiences for individuals and groups employing a range of developmentally appropriate and flexible teaching, learning and assessment strategies and resources in ICT enriched environments. The course includes a 15 day, school based practicum which provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding related to ICT and pedagogy and their ability to integrate ICT into the curriculum.

Resources developed throughout the course may be selected by students for inclusion in their digital portfolios, which they will create throughout the program as evidence of their learning.

Should enrolments not reach the minimum number required for on-campus study, students may be transferred to the WEB offering and advised of this change before semester commences.
