CPP2 Workshops

Overview:

Workshops for the Curriculum, Pedagogy and Practice units, draw connections from lectures and tutorials to specialised discipline areas. Prior to workshops, students will have attended a number of lectures and tutorials outlining content knowledge. The workshops are an opportunity for students to contextualise this content knowledge and challenge it through the lens of their discipline.
Curriculum, Pedagogy and Practice 2 workshops aim to differentiate views on what the culture of the discipline means for how we manage our classroom environment. The workshops will look at what our options are for creating the kind of discipline-based classroom that we want for the kind of teacher we're hoping to become. What helps create the right kind of environment for our discipline: what physical arrangements? what groupings? what ways of structuring a lesson? what mandated policies and procedures? etc.
