This capstone unit provides students with the opportunity to integrate their knowledge and skills with their teacher beliefs, values and practices from their course and professional experience. The students will complete a review of their studies and present their learning to the cohort in small groups. The capstone enables students to explicitly demonstrate what they have learned throughout their degree. They will: produce a critical reflection on their practice drawing on theoretical and practical knowledge and construct a showcase portfolio as further evidence of their own learning. The content prepares them for the transition to the workplace and the profession. The capstone requires students to select and design an investigation into a topic relevant to them as emerging professionals to support their ongoing engagement with the profession.
This unit includes a professional experience placement during which the pre-service teacher will: plan a unit of work/whole class program using an appropriate format for extended planning as discussed with supervising teachers; teach a whole class for at least two lessons a day leading to full control for an extended period; become fully involved in the life and operations of the school, as per a beginning teacher. Embedded in this unit is the continuation of your Deakin Teaching Performance Assessment Task (DTPA). As a critical reflection of practice, the DTPA requires graduating teachers to be able to demonstrate their ‘profession readiness’ through a reflection of classroom teaching practice that includes the elements of planning, teaching, assessing and reflecting.
Satisfactory completion of the professional experience placement and the Deakin Teaching Performance Assessment Task is required in order to pass this unit.
