This unit can be taken as an elective in Education courses. It is not available as an elective in some other courses. Please check with your Faculty prior to enrolling in this unit.
This unit considers your future professional development as a teacher beyond graduation, and invites you to contemplate the various forthcoming leadership dimensions of your future role. Many teaching activities have a leadership component to them and indeed high quality curriculum development, working in teams, and project management cannot be carried out effectively without applying leadership attributes. As the AITSL standards reflect, as you progress through your career it will be important that you are able to demonstrate and provide evidence of this leadership capacity. Your participation in this unit will equip you with practical ways of developing teacher leadership as well as theoretical understanding of various important aspects of teacher leadership and communication. Central to this is effective personal development so that you are able to lead with integrity, joy, gratitude and resilience, while maintaining a healthy life-work balance. You will have the opportunity to reflect on how other school leaders achieve this, again through a theoretical lens, while taking proactive steps to embed changes to your personal and professional approach to your forthcoming role.
