Content

This unit is the final of four in the Education Studies Major sequence, and aims to help students develop the skills and understandings needed to be a member of the profession. It has three parts. One will address professional ethical issues, collegiality, parent partnerships, inclusivity and social justice. In another part, students will learn essential professional knowledge for the beginning teacher. These will include the organisational and record keeping requirements of schools, the legal requirements of teachers, the place of professional teacher organisations, and general useful information about schools as institutional work sites and as elements of systems. The third part, which may be undertaken jointly with other final trimester units, will be a small, reflective-practice research project. This project aims to begin the habit of reflective on-going research into the teaching process for those at the beginning of the journey of life-long professional learning.
