This subject focuses on preparing proficient beginning teachers and setting a foundation for continuing professional learning. On completion of this subject, students are able to apply their educational studies to teaching – to design, organise and evaluate methods and materials for teaching, and use their own theoretical framework as a basis for their future teaching. Students are challenged to draw on their core subjects to think holistically about the impacts and influences on how the science program is taught, with a strong emphasis on using curriculum, assessment and reporting to organise content into effective learning and teaching sequences for units of work. The subject adopts an inquiry-based process in which real problems and questions are identified and explored in depth by teams to generate deep knowledge pertinent to students' professional learning needs.
