This unit plays a significant role in student self-assessment of their attainment of the graduate professional teaching standards of the NSW Institute of Teachers. In doing so, the unit supports students to access strategies to develop all aspects of the graduate standards, while making substantial input to the development of NSW Institute of Teachers professional teaching standards, Elements 6 and 7. The lecture, forum and tutorials will explore the standards, with a focus on examining students' beliefs, evidence of current attainment, needs for development and steps to achieve full attainment of the standards. Assessment tasks are designed to support students to draw together evidence to not only demonstrate attainment but also to identify areas for further development and achievable steps to be undertaken during their last 15 day professional experience. The final assessment task will engage the students in reflection on an identified need in a school which will be the stimulus used to develop a focus on their own professional needs. This professional need will be further explored through action learning within EDUP4017 : Professional Experiences 4 (Primary).
