Aims and objectives

In this unit, pre-service teachers will develop an understanding of curriculum learning areas, their concepts, content, and structure which will support their knowledge and ability to organise classroom activities and communicate required learning to students. They will also explore human development as a lens to convey how the planning and effective implementation of teaching and learning programs including trauma informed pedagogy promotes inclusion for all students. Through this exploration they will learn how to set achievable goals and challenges for students of varying abilities and characteristics and also locate relevant teaching strategies and evidence-based pedagogy that effectively supports student learning outcomes. They will also be supported to identify evaluative tools that measure impact on student learning and wellbeing..

Unit Learning Outcomes: Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
 
1. Review relevant teaching strategies and evidence-based pedagogy that effectively support student learning outcomes in the context of the primary curriculum learning areas, their concepts, content and structure2. Critically analyse and apply appropriate theoretical frameworks and models for responding to a range of behaviours displayed in the learning environment.
3. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding required to set and provide achievable goals and challenges for students of varying abilities and characteristics.
4. Plan effective teaching and learning programs from a demonstrated understanding of human development to promote inclusion and full participation of all students (including those with additional needs) in classroom activities
5. Design learning programs to respond to human development, including trauma informed pedagogy to support inclusion and participation for all students, including those who are neuro-diverse or have additional learning needs.
