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