Professional Experience Component = 10 consecutive days
For any curriculum to offer educative value there must be detailed engagement with particular contexts.
This unit will enable students to understand both the epistemological and ontological dimensions associate with curriculum work and be able to relate these to the discourse of education.
The relation between educational theory and context will be explored through examining a variety of curriculum practices through history, such as for example in Ancient Greece, Freire‘s Brazil, Dewey‘s United States and A. S. Neil‘s England, where the various dimensions of politics, morality, culture and philosophy all inform how educative experiences and programs can be understood.
Students will examine why the rationale of any curriculum is central to all educational practice and shall design curriculum to provide specific experiences which can be justified as offering educative value for students and for the global community.
This unit includes 10 days professional experience. During these days the pre‐service teacher will:
Exam 1200 words – 40%
Assignment 2000 words: Create, present and justify a particular curriculum program – 60%
Assessing the Professional Experience For students enrolled in School of Education courses, the professional experience component is assessed primarily by the class-based teacher who advises the Unit Chair. Satisfactory completion of the Professional Experience component is compulsory in order for the student to progress.
