15 points



This course and first teaching practice experience provides opportunities for pre-service teachers to enact learning about teaching and demonstrate professional skills, knowledge and dispositions. Pre-service teachers develop practice competence in school contexts, with professional support. Practice experience is focused on understanding and responding to learners, design for learning, establishing a learning-focused culture, fostering professional relationships, enacting principles relating to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and engaging in professional learning. The course and teaching practice experience are closely linked to other courses in the GradDipTchgLn programme, through which opportunities are provided for examination of practice-related challenges and contributions to assignment requirements across the programme.
