Description As a result of undertaking this major area of study students will develop a detailed and coherent body of knowledge and skills. Learning outcomes access an understanding of principles and concepts for the professional practice as a teacher of ATAR Science (Physics).
Upon successfully completing the B.Ed (Secondary Teaching), graduates may apply for registration to teach a Major teaching area and a Minor Teaching area at the secondary school level. Students will study both areas concurrently within the Bachelor of Education. The Bachelor of Education course learning outcomes address both AQF Level 7 and the Graduate Teacher Standards established by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL), the professional standards for initial registration as a teacher in Australia.

As a result of this course students will develop a broad and coherent body of knowledge and skills, an underlying understanding of principles and concepts for their professional practice as a teacher and/or for another professional role in education.

Selection of Major Teaching Area and Minor Teaching Area options are limited to the following areas/subjects in secondary schools:

Major Teaching Areas:

English
Humanities and Social Sciences (Geography and Economics; History; OR Politics)
Mathematics (Advanced Mathematics OR Mathematics)
Physical Education (Must be combined with Health Education Minor Teaching area)

Science (Biology and Environmental Science, Biology and Human Biology, Chemistry (must be combined with Mathematics Minor Teaching area), Earth and Environmental Science, Physics (must be combined with Mathematics Minor Teaching area)


Minor Teaching Areas:

English

Health Education (Must be combined with Physical Education Major Teaching area)

Humanities and Social Sciences
Mathematics Science, Biological Science, Chemistry, Earth andEnvironmental Science, Physics)


Advice about suitable teaching areas/subjects may be obtained from the Academic Chair (Secondary).

Professional Experience: There are 80 days of mentored teaching practice in this course.

This course requires students to undertake work-based training through a compulsory work-based placement as part of their studies.
Admission Requirements: Onshore course offerings As per normal undergraduate requirements

English competence.
Major Learning Outcomes Demonstrate an advanced understanding of the core concepts, subject matter and content relationships of Science (Physics).
Demonstrate mastery of relevant academic underpinnings and apply it to theoretical and practical contexts
Demonstrate the cognitive, technical and creative skills necessary to investigate and analyse complex information
Course Learning Outcomes On successful completion of this course, students will have demonstrated the following
skills, knowledge and attributes at a graduate teacher standard:

CLO1 - integrate in a differentiated context an appropriate level of content knowledge, understanding, pedagogy, classroom management skills and teaching skills to meet the needs of a diverse range of learners Years 7-12.

CLO2 - develop and implement learning and teaching programs that meet statutory curriculum, assessment and reporting requirements.

CLO3 - analyse and interpret diagnostic and assessment data to evaluate students' learning, modify and differentiate teaching practice and apply timely, diverse and appropriate feedback to enhance learning and teaching.

CLO4 - create and integrate practical strategies for developing psychological needs support with and guiding childrens' behaviour to support their well-being, emotional and social needs, and safety and to maximize their learning opportunities.

CLO5 - work ethically, collaboratively and with reflection.

CLO6 - demonstrate achievement of AITSL Graduate Professional Standards through a portfolio.

CLO7 - demonstrate knowledge and understanding of English and numeracy content, curriculum and teaching strategies, and capacity to apply them in a classroom to enhance the progressive learning of students.
