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.
Before commencing this course students will be assumed to have read the full details of Professional Experience particulars and familiarised themselves with the requirements. Please see the Education Placement Professional Experience website https://www.usq.edu.au/current-students/assessment/professional-experience and the Professional Experience Book for full details.
State law in Queensland (Australia) requires that all adults working/undertaking professional experience/researching with children under the age of 18, in the state of Queensland must hold a valid Blue Card http://www.bluecard.qld.gov.au/volunteers/doineedabluecard.html OR Exemption Card http://www.bluecard.qld.gov.au/faqs/exemption-card-faqs.html
If undertaking placement outside of Queensland, it is the students’ responsibility to comply with the relevant working with children checks that are required for this jurisdiction, and provide evidence to the Professional Experience office http://www.usq.edu.au/current-students/assessment/professional-experience
Building on the concepts and understandings in EDG2000 Design for Learning, this course will expand on the exploration of whole-site and individual-educator approaches to the establishment of inclusive learning environments. Awareness of how particular sites respond to particular features of their socio-cultural communities is explored through the lens of a social justice approach to meet the needs of diverse groups in contemporary education and community locations. Students will be required to demonstrate competence in constructing and implementing long term plans and associated assessment activities and procedures for the educational program in which they are involved. The skills, attitudes and behaviours that promote effective relationships and collaboration will be identified and practised. The course provides for 25 days of professional attachment to an identified school.
