Early Childhood Internship - EDEC4012

Year - 2020

This unit is the final professional experience unit students undertake before embarking on their teaching careers. The unit requires students to take an educational leadership role within their setting, demonstrating professional ethics and implementation of their teaching philosophy. Students will be expected to take a critical approach to teaching with a focus on fairness, equity and inclusion and reflective practice. During the extended 30 day placement students will further refine their pedagogical practice through a concurrent practitioner research project undertaken in the co-requisite EDEC4011 Research unit.
