This course prepares you to teach within your specific Technologies discipline through an exploration of how Technologies content, pedagogy and curriculum fit and work together to provide effective learning opportunities. You will be introduced to specific knowledge and pedagogical understanding within your particular Technologies discipline, aimed at moving you beyond generic approaches of teaching to a deeper understanding of learning and teaching within the Technologies area.
You will consider a range of pedagogical approaches, encompassing approaches common to clusters of disciplines as well as those distinctive to your specific Technologies discipline. The course will support you in developing a strong professional knowledge of discipline-specific curriculum and pedagogy within your chosen Technologies teaching areas, allowing you to actively construct your discipline-specific Technologies' pedagogical practice and professional expertise.
