CUR4210 Curriculum Enrichment for the Major Secondary Specialisation
Credit Points: 15

This unit consolidates content knowledge and expands curriculum perspectives that have been developing over four years in the area of students’ major specialisations, involving them in practical and creative demonstrations of pedagogy at its best. Curriculum coordinators will choose an intensive teaching and learning activity or project for delivery to senior year secondary students, so that pre-service teachers can graduate with some particular, targeted professional knowledge about teaching and learning in their major discipline at Years 11 or 12. The unit also looks at ways to evaluate how teaching impacts upon senior secondary students, thus developing values for evidence-based teaching effectiveness. The unit stresses the importance of continuous engagement with leading edge information in a teacher’s specialisation, and of his or her commitment to ongoing professional growth.
