This unit focuses on investigating professional issues critical to students’ future health and physical educators. The theoretical component is driven by a problem-based at pedagogy. Students explore this pedagogy through the development of a response to a problem-based scenario typical in a health of physical education setting. As a capstone unit, students will engage in preparing themselves for future careers through revisiting and exploring issues such as responsible use of ICT; understanding the role of the Australian National Professional Standards for Graduate Teachers; access to and rationale for professional learning; ethical and social justice issues; policies and practices in schools; working in diverse religious, linguistic, cultural and socioeconomic contexts; and the role of the DET, community and parents in their work as teachers. Students will also be required to consider their current skills and knowledge in mapping these to the Australian National Standards for Graduate Teachers and producing a Me in a Minute blog to represent their teaching selves.
