Teacher professional accreditation demands that secondary teaching graduates have a strong professional knowledge of discipline-specific curriculum and pedagogical studies within their chosen teaching areas. Although there are some common pedagogical approaches across clusters of disciplines, there are also distinctive practices within specific disciplines. This course enables preservice teachers to develop specific knowledges and pedagogical understandings within the Science discipline.
The course begins with preservice teachers exploring specific structures and knowledges related to their teaching area. Building on this, they will then actively construct their own pedagogical practice and develop professional expertise in delivering discipline specific teaching for learning. The purpose of this course is to move beyond generic approaches of teaching for learning to provide a deep understanding of how to teach in their Science discipline. This course provides the opportunity for preservice teachers to learn how Science content, pedagogy and curriculum fit and work together to provide effective learning opportunities.
