EDP4130 Technology Curriculum and Pedagogy
Pre-requisite: EDP3333 and EDC3100
Students must have successfully completed the entire previous year's professional experience courses in order to enrol in this course.
Students will become familiar with contemporary curriculum and pedagogy for technology education, with an emphasis on current Queensland curriculum supplemented by material from relevant national and international sources that will equip them to apply their knowledge in a variety of contexts. The course will emphasise experiential learning appropriate to technology education by engaging students in individual and collaborative activities that require them to use the technology process to conceptualise, develop, implement and evaluate solutions to relevant design challenges. An attached professional experience will provide students with opportunity to investigate the implementation of technology education in an appropriate setting. The course provides for a 15-day professional experience placement.
