Module 3: Practicum
Students will undertake 25 days of practicum. The first five weekly school visits will be observation.
- Planning for teaching
- Lesson implementation
- Reflection on practice

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
