EBA749 Incountry Professional Experience

Is based on three weeks teaching and developing curriculum in South East Asia. Vietnam and Thailand are the two countries within which the Department of Education at Hobart has developed teaching opportunities for Australian teachers. Teaching and curriculum work in this unit is not subject-area or sector specific, and is based on the collaborative integration of key learning areas into a cross-curricular framework.
The program consists of two parts: (a) the collaborative preparation and team - teaching of a curriculum unit with teachers from the host country; learning about the host country; (b) an enhancement of teaching and curriculum development, involving 5 days of travel to sites in Vietnam/Thailand for resource development.
This unit can be taken as a stand-alone unit.

EBA759 Introduction to Landcare for Teachers

Introduces teachers to the concept of 'landcare' through an integrated study of topics such as soils, water, vegetation and biodiversity and the human interaction with these. The unit employs a variety of seminars, practical activities and field trips, to provide teachers with sufficient understanding and confidence to introduce landcare into their own teaching. Landcare is a valuable educational approach for teachers in that it helps students to understand connections between subject areas and addresses 'real' rather than solely theoretical issues.

EBA760 Extended Landcare for Teachers - Specific Action Program

Focuses on the selection of particular focal topics of landcare interest which teachers pursue in their own action program. After having obtained an understanding of landcare issues in EBA759, teachers are encouraged to move towards an active landcare education program suited to their own teaching needs by analysing and developing the relevant curriculum links. A landcare approach helps pupils to develop a sense of purpose by building on existing knowledge to work towards specific action programs.

EBA761 Project (Landcare Links for Teachers)

Teachers are required to work with their colleagues in their school or school cluster to introduce a landcare education program. Examples could include the development of a 'whole school approach', a community-based landcare program or a rural-urban link. This unit draws on participants' landcare understanding, knowledge and skills gained in EBA759, 760.
