EDP3333 Pedagogy and Curriculum 3
Pre-requisite: (EDP2111 and EDP2222) or (EDP2111 and SPE3001) or (EDP2111 and EDH2254)
Students must have successfully completed the entire previous year's professional experience courses in order to enrol in this course. Students must be available for a prescribed period of time to undertake a placement in a school or other approved site as required in this course.
This course further develops the theoretical perspectives presented in Pedagogy and Curriculum 2 and deals with current initiatives in curriculum design and pedagogical practice, particularly the move to standards-based curriculum, and the pedagogical implications of contemporary ideas of knowledge, its construction and practice. The beginning teacher will draw on this content, reflecting on curriculum and pedagogical practices in different contexts, in order to develop the necessary skills and understandings for planning and teaching engaging learning experiences. As they explore and reflect upon the roles that contemporary teachers adopt, students will become more able to apply their knowledge through practical judgements in a range of contexts. Intending students should be aware that they require regular access to electronic resources including email and the Internet. The course provides for a 15-day professional experience placement.
