Course Description

This course is the culmination of a sequence of professional experience (work integrated learning) courses designed to develop your knowledge and skills to teach in educational settings. It has an embedded placement component in which your knowledge and skills will be applied and assessed in a real workplace context and where feedback from industry and/ or community is integral to your experience. 

In this capstone course, you will draw on learning from courses across the program and from professional experiences in schools/ educational settings. You will learn, practice and then be assessed on your capacity to complete a teaching and learning cycle in a school/ educational setting and to demonstrate your work-readiness by submitting a Graduate Teacher Performance Assessment (GTPA) task. 

This course includes a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) professional experience (PX) in which your teaching knowledge and skills will be applied and assessed in a real or simulated workplace context and where feedback from industry and/or community is integral to your experience. This PX is 20 days.
