Pre-requisite: Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: BEDU (Early Childhood) or BEDU (Primary) or BEDU (Special Education) or BEDU (HPE Primary) or BEDU (SHPE Primary) or BECH or BEDU (HPE Secondary) or BEED or BPED
Students enrolling in courses which do not follow the recommended enrolment pattern cannot be assured of a developmental learning experience or program completion within their preferred timeframe.
Pre-service educators will experience and apply pedagogical and curriculum considerations for facilitating engaging, inclusive, developmentally appropriate and safe learning environments for HPE. They develop a range of understandings and competencies for interpreting and managing the HPE environment for teaching and learning.
A central tenet of HPE is an inclusive curriculum that seeks to enhance the learning opportunities for all children and incorporates the social justice principles of equity, diversity and supportive environments. Design of relevant learning experiences aligned with assessment processes; management of classes and environments; incorporating pertinent general capabilities into the learning context, and the impact of these considerations on the enacted curriculum are explored.
Pre-service educators have the opportunity to analyse, apply and evaluate skills and develop confidence in effective teaching styles for HPE through planning and micro-teaching. Through engagement in course learning experiences, it is expected that students will become increasingly independent practitioners and develop competence is sourcing current, accurate information and appropriate resources for HPE.
