About this unit

In this unit, pre-service teachers will develop an understanding of curriculum learning areas, their concepts, content, and structure that will support their knowledge and ability to organise classroom activities and communicate required learning to students. They will also explore human development as a lens to convey how the planning and effective implementation of teaching and learning programs including trauma informed pedagogy promotes inclusion for all students.

Through this exploration they will learn how to set achievable goals and challenges for students of varying abilities and characteristics and also locate relevant teaching strategies and evidence-based pedagogy that effectively supports student learning outcomes. They will also be supported to identify evaluative tools that measure impact on student learning and wellbeing.
