Please note - EMT502 Foundations of Teaching is the co-requisite theory unit for EMT500/EMT513 Professional Experience 1. Co-requisite units must be either enrolled concurrently or the theory component (EMT502) successfully completed in a prior semester of study. If you have not met the theory requirements, you will be ineligible for Professional Experience 1.
Foundations of Teaching introduces you to the study of teaching as a profession and dimensions of teacher relationships and work. Through acquiring skills to reflect critically on your assumptions based on past educational experiences and attitudes and beliefs about teaching and teachers, you will have the opportunity to engage at a deep level with both research and your new experiences of teaching. Content explored in this Unit relates to teacher reflection, teacher professionalism, teaching strategies, teacher gratitude, and the pragmatics of teachers' work such as establishing a positive and supportive classroom environment, communication as a teacher, and observation skills. Your participation in this Unit therefore establishes a sound base to develop your knowledge and professional practice for the duration of the course and into the future.
