This unit is designed to build on earlier languages curriculum units to prepare pre-service teachers for their future teaching. Students continue to investigate cases of languages and cultures education, honing skills, understandings and competencies for future employment and preparing for lifelong professional development. Students will gain broad understandings about the nature and scope of languages education in the NSW context, about traditional and more contemporary and innovative classroom practices and particular aspects of policy and NESA documentation.
