Pre-service teachers will be provided with opportunities to apply knowledge of effective and ethical collaborative decision-making processes and frameworks to hypothetical scenarios. The course will require pre-service teachers to explain and justify collaborative decisions by referring to relevant theories and frameworks. The course builds upon theoretical foundations of collaborative practice to develop pre-service teachers' knowledge and understanding as well as the ability to apply relevant skills associated with developing collaborative partnerships. Pre-service teachers will draw upon relevant literature and research, as well as relevant policies and procedures, to make decisions, then explain and justify their responses with reference to a range of specific scenarios.
