This Open Universities Australia unit delivered by Macquarie University builds on the theoretical knowledge you gained from Early Childhood Professional Practice 1 by giving you invaluable practical experience in the form of a 20 day working placement.
The placement will give you an insight into the role and responsibilities of a teacher working with two to five year olds, and will allow you to putt theory into practice. In doing so, you will be able to demonstrate the link between theory, planning and the Early Years Learning Framework as outlined by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.
Practical experience combined with solid theoretical learning and guided reflection will give you a comprehensive understanding of how to work as a reflective early childhood educator, and show you how to critically analyse the pedagogy and practice involved in teaching and learning.
