This unit aims to prepare students for facilitating learning in Health and Human Development with a strong emphasis on the teaching of Health and Human Development at the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) level. It also aims to provide an understanding of the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) and Vocational Education and Training (VET) in the VCE as it relates to Health and Human Development. Students understanding of the nature of the curriculum, pedagogy and assessment in Health and Human Development and the implications for teaching are expanded. The study looks at the VCE Health and Human Development approach to the concept of development as a continuum that begins with individual human development (Units 1 & 2) and progresses towards human development at a societal level (Unit 4); the role nutrition plays in influencing both health status and individual human development; the responsibilities and obligations of the teacher in delivering the prescribed curriculum of the VCE Health and Human Development Study Design; exploration of contemporary resources texts and resources that can be incorporated into the classroom to facilitate the teaching and learning of the VCE Health and Human Development Study Design; and interpreting health data and the nature of school based and external evaluation and assessment of VCE.
