Educators regularly collaborate with colleagues, school community members and other professionals. This course develops pre-service teachers’ understanding of and ability to apply effective and ethical collaborative practices in a variety of scenarios. The Professional Standards for Teachers includes a focus on professional engagement and collaboration with parents, carers, external professionals and community representatives.
The aim of this course is to enable pre-service teachers to develop the set of skills needed for working collaboratively with a range of educational stakeholders in a variety of contexts. 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.
