Investigating inquiry pedagogy, as the signature pedagogy associated with the Humanities and Social Sciences, is the focus of this course, both in theory and in practice. Pre-service educators in this course will develop an understanding of the sub-strands of Humanities and Social Sciences (History; Geography; Civics and Citizenship; and Economics and Business) that draw on students' growing experience of community and the wider world. Pre-service educators will also integrate the Australian curriculum Cross-Curriculum Priorities and General Capabilities to embed them when designing from this curriculum. To reflect on their teaching of the Humanities and Social Sciences, educators in this course will identify and contribute to professional learning networks in order to improve practice.
