Course Information

The course focuses on the education and preparation of primary school educators (Years 1-6). It is informed by comprehensive and contemporary understandings of childhood development and learning. A range of critical teacher competencies will be established and extended with special emphasis on skills children need in literacy and numeracy. You will be introduced to the breadth of learning required of primary children including science, the humanities and social science, the arts, and health and physical education. You will also learn how to plan engaging learning programs using a range of resources and new technologies. There will be an opportunity to practise your teaching skills in authentic settings throughout the course and in professional practice placements. In the final semester, you will reflect on and refine your teaching skills by conducting targeted teaching interventions with a strong focus in language, literacy or numeracy.

Master of Teaching (Primary) students can specialise in English/Literacy OR Mathematics/numeracy through pathways in the units EDUC5509 Interventions for Learning and EDUC5710 Advanced Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment.
