|Subject Overview:||The professional practice and seminar program provides an integrated focus for all subjects taught in the semester and addresses teacher candidates’ developing understandings of professional knowledge, professional practice and professional engagement. The school placement focuses on developing an understanding of school organisation, management of classrooms, principles of learning and teaching and their application to content areas for teaching. Teacher candidates will analyse student characteristics and teaching to identify characteristics of lessons that make productive classrooms and which characteristics of learning and teaching are effective for individual students. Teacher candidates are mentored by experienced teachers in collaboration with clinical tutors who are engaged in the on-campus teaching program. The professional practice seminars provide teacher candidates with opportunities to examine theoretical frameworks and associated practical tasks that have been assigned during the placement.
