This unit focuses on working effectively with learners both in small groups and as a whole group. Preservice Teachers will plan learning experiences accordingly for a specific cohort of diverse learners. Preservice Teachers will critically reflect on and analyse teaching practice working from the position of a practitioner researcher. Primary Preservice Teachers will focus their critique of practice on mathematics and/or numeracy teaching. Preservice Teachers will use effective communication practices in learning contexts and ensure safe, supportive and challenging inclusive learning-friendly environments. Preservice Teachers will review and analyse effective pedagogy including demonstrating the use of ICT and digital literacies to engage learners in their learning. Discussions with peers, colleagues, supervisors and Deakin staff will be designed to critically reflect on and improve the effectiveness of their planned and enacted teaching as a result of considered engagement with and implementation of a range of learning assessment tasks. Preservice Teachers will be expected to articulate an informed emergent professional position through discussions with colleagues, peers, parents and mentors.
