|Subject Overview:||The subject focuses on supporting effective personal professional development in the initial stages of teaching. With assistance from a designated faculty mentor, graduate teachers collate and present evidence of practice against the standards for teaching. Graduate teachers are supported through a range of on campus and online workshops in topics related to knowledge, practice and professional engagement in teaching. Emphasis is given to areas that have been identified through research as threshold areas of learning for beginning teachers including pedagogical skills for teaching, managing behaviour and aspects of pedagogical content knowledge relevant to specialist areas for teaching. Assigned mentors provide online support and advice in response to these issues and to the interests and needs of the graduate teachers.|
