|Subject Overview:||The professional practice and seminar program provides an integrated focus on 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 student characteristics. Teacher candidates begin to 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 how theory informs practice and provide opportunities for them to examine theoretical frameworks and associated practical tasks that have been assigned during the placement.
