The subject is focused on student characteristics and teacher candidates will analyse 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 support teacher candidates’ ongoing learning about students and their learning needs and include presentations and analysis of student learning characteristics and discussion on the features of productive classrooms and student centred learning.|
