COLLEGE OF EDUCATION 2015 INTRODUCTION Welcome to the Bachelor of Education (P-12). Our goal is to support you to become the best teacher that you can through putting you in charge of your study program. When you graduate you will be qualified to teach in both primary and secondary schools. However, where you choose to work is your decision. That is the distinction of our course and one of which we are very proud. BE THE TEACHER YOU WANT TO BE Your big decision in becoming the best teacher you can is to decide on what your two specialisations will be for teaching in a secondary school. When selecting your specialisations you should choose:- • The specialisations that best match your passion/s and expertise, and • Which specialisations will give you the best opportunities for employment in a secondary school Please note: - • There are students who select the Physical Education (Primary) specialisation. This will result in them having only one secondary specialisation.

• At the moment there is a high demand for qualified teachers of Mathematics, Science, Technology Studies/VET LOTE, English and Humanities. Having experience and knowledge across primary and secondary schooling will also make you more readily employable. Please monitor the website of the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) to keep track of hard-to-staff specialisations and hard-to-staff schools. NAVIGATING THE COURSE and TRACKING YOUR PROGRESS In order to ensure that you graduate in a timely manner, with flexible employment possibilities, you must become expert course ‘navigators’. Understanding the consequences of your decisions is essential for having a trouble-free enrolment. This document is designed to assist you in understanding the structure of the Bachelor of Education (P-12), to guide you in assessing your progress towards course completion, and to enable you to plan your enrolment in future semesters. There are, essentially, three (3) aspects to your course: • Core education units, • Content specialisation units, and • Teaching practicum/project partnerships All three areas require your attention to ensure timely completion. DEALING WITH PROBLEMS For issues pertaining to any of the core education units, or the sequencing of the content specialisation units, please either speak to a year level coordinator (see page 9) or an education unit coordinator (see page 10 / 11). For any issues pertaining to the Project Partnership, please email your problem to partnerships@vu.edu.au. It is your responsibility to enrol correctly, manage your course progress, and ensure that you have satisfactorily completed the course requirements.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATION, INTERMISSION, or DISCONTINUATION If you are struggling and require special consideration, intermission (formerly leave of absence), or discontinuation (formerly withdrawal), you need to apply for these in a very timely manner through the student centre. Special consideration forms must be filled in and submitted to student services. Intermission and discontinuation should be completed before the census dates of the 31st March (semester 1) and 31st August (semester 2) to avoid financial commitments to the units enrolled.

KEEPING A COPY OF YOUR WORK AND/OR APPLICATION FORMS ETC Please keep a photocopy of any paper work you submit to either a lecturer or anyone in student services, etc. If your submissions (assessment items or applications) are inadvertently misplaced, you should be able to provide a copy of the required document. Confirmation of electronic submission (via email reply) should also be kept. Page 5 All information correct at time of printing Last updated 12/12/2014

However, depending on your specialisation areas, you may need to do two Secondary PCK units in one semester. This may have an impact on the completion of your specialisation units. According to VIT regulations, students are required to have completed or to be co-completing their specialisation units by the time they enrol for their secondary PCK. In some circumstances, students may still need to complete their specialisation units into year 4. In such cases, please seek academic advice.

The following provides details of which Secondary PCKs are being offered in 2015 – including semesters and campus. This will help your enrolment planning so that you can undertake the units that you need to. Please be aware that: • Some Secondary PCKs are only offered in one semester each year – this includes Dance/Drama; Maths, Media, Music, Outdoor Education, Science, Student Welfare, Technology and VET. If you are doing these specialisations you will need to identify these first and then plan when you can take your other Secondary specialisation.

The specialisation in Literary Studies introduces students to a broad range of literary texts and ways of reading them.

Literary Studies helps students develop essential critical skills that strengthen their ability to contribute to a broad range of issues and debates. From Jane Austen to Christos Tsiolkas, Olde England to New Zealand, romance to realism, poetry to politics, individual units cross a broad range of authors, places and issues. Throughout the specialisation, students develop skills in methods of reading, analysis and interpretation that equip them for further work in journalism, teaching and the broader literature industry.

VIT REQUIREMENTS: Specialist Area – English: a) Sub-Major study (4 units) in English (Literature or Literary Studies).

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION 2015 Humanities – History Specialisation Coordinator: Professor Phillip Deery, Email phillip.deery@vu.edu.au Room E.208 Footscray Park campus, Tel 99194597 WHY HISTORY? Knowledge of the past has always been central to human awareness. For more than a century, the study of History has underpinned the Western liberal tradition. History is connected with the search for meaning. It conveys communal memory, creating a sense of personal and group identity by locating individuals in time and space. The study of History offers each of us the chance to understand, even bridge, other cultures. Significantly, History is a humanist specialisation, revealing the similarities and differences of human experience.

Our History major offers opportunities to sample this diverse human experience. We offer studies in the modern history of Australia, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Russia, the United States of America, and sport. Our aim is to both challenge and excite students as they move through the study of History, beyond their own lives to those of people in other times and other places. We also aim to develop an appreciation of the contributions historians make to an understanding of contemporary society. VIT REQUIREMENTS Specialist Area – History: Sub-Major study (4 units) in History.

Aristotle famously argued that Politics is the ‘master science’, essential to an understanding of what makes us human. Whenever human beings create and live within communities and organisations – be they countries and international organisations or even corporations and families – they engage in politics. And if politics was important during Aristotle’s time in Ancient Greece, it is even more so today as people around the world seek to organise in ever more complicated ways in order to achieve their goals. This specialisation provides the foundation for the study of both normative and empirical questions about Australian and International Politics. Normative questions are those that ask what values or ideals ought to guide a community or organisation: should we pursue liberty, growth, equality, order? When we investigate empirical questions we generally ask how existing organisations and communities operate; how decisions are made and how plans and policies are implemented.

Within this specialisation students have the opportunity to examine politics as it operates in different places – from Indonesia to the United States – and as it relates to different issues – from Economics and Neo/colonialism to International Security. Our students even have the opportunity to work with members of parliament through our parliamentary internship unit. VIT REQUIREMENTS Specialist Area – Politics: Sub-Major (4 units) in Politics.

The Sociology specialisation begins with an overview of sociology— an introduction to how we go about applying the sociological imagination to a wide range of aspects of contemporary social arrangements. A major in sociology provides students with the opportunity to focus on specific aspects of social life, both local and international – education, work and unemployment, family, health, sex, gender and sexuality, ethnicity and racism, equality, opportunity, inequality, crime, law and social justice. The Sociology specialisation aims to foster students' critical analytical skills and to offer opportunities for students to apply sociological tools of analysis to their own inquiries into contemporary social life.

Gender is one of the major ways that human society is organised, whether considered from a social or cultural perspective. Gender Studies has developed over the last three decades into a complex and influential academic specialisation. The ideas of Gender Studies, and in particular the theories and practices of feminism, have significantly shifted the ways of knowing across many fields of academic inquiry. The Gender Studies specialisation provides students with a critical education in major theories and applications about the place of gender. The introductory units in first year positions gender in contemporary society from social and cultural perspectives. The second and third year units enable interdisciplinary studies across history, literary studies, politics, education, media studies and other fields. An understanding of the implications of gender in today's society is most important in work that deals with people. VIT REQUIREMENTS Specialist Area – Humanities: Sub-Major study (4 units) in one of the specialist Humanities areas: Economics, Geography and History together with a Part (2 units) in another area of study: Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Economics, Environmental Studies, Geography, History, Indigenous Studies, Legal Studies, Philosophy, Politics, Sociology (please note not all specialisations are available at VU).

Vietnam has a rich history and culture, and is also an emerging economy with strong ties to Australia. Vietnamese language skills are in demand in many areas such as teaching, tourism, international trade, community-related work and international projects. The Vietnamese specialisation, which consists of different levels and focuses, is designed for both beginners and native speakers, and also for students who are only interested in studying Vietnamese culture and society without the language component. VIT REQUIREMENTS Specialist Area – LOTE: An advanced level Major study in the language requiring successful completion of Year 12 studies in the language for entry into the program. Native speakers of the language may seek a statement of equivalence from an Australian university, to verify that their knowledge and competence in the language meets the standard of a post-year 12 Advanced level Major study in the language. VU GUIDELINES For a LOTE Major: Students who have completed Year 12 Vietnamese begin with ACV2001 and complete 4 core and 2 elective units. Those without Year 12 Vietnamese begin with ACV1001 and complete all 8 units of study listed. Only Vietnamese is offered at VU. As a cooperative arrangement between the two universities, students who wish to do other languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Indonesian and Arabic can study in Melbourne University language programs as part of their VU courses.

The media occupy a central place in our society and culture and make a significant contribution to the world around us. As new communication technologies have been introduced, and delivery costs of content decrease, some commentators predict that we are entering an entirely new era of media production and consumption. A specialisation in Media Studies will enable students to undertake a sequence of units focusing on contemporary media forms and practices. Such a specialised area of study draws together a mix of units, some with an emphasis on analysis and research, and some with a large hands-on practical component.

Media Studies is a growing field of study at VCE level and whilst this specialisation allows students to continue in this field, VCE media studies in not required for entry into this specialisation. VIT REQUIREMENTS Specialist Area – Media: Sub-Major study in Media Studies VU GUIDELINES For a Media Major (4 units): Complete a minimum of 4 units including the 2 core units (in bold) in Year 1 and at least 2 electives.

The information includes language that is used by Victoria University (VU) and the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT). Victoria University (VU) terminology VU Victoria University, often referred to as ‘VU’, is a self-accrediting organisation that provides tertiary education courses.

Course The Bachelor of Education P-12 (B.Ed. (P-12)) is a course. Once you have successfully completed the course you can apply to VU to graduate and to the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) to seek registration so that you can join the teaching profession. Credit Points The University uses a credit point system to manage students’ progress. A full-time preservice teacher usually enrols in 48 credit points per semester and 96 credit points per year. In a 4 year course such as the B.Ed. (P-12), a student must complete 4 x 96 = 384 credit points to meet the graduation requirements. Preservice teachers receiving CentreLink support need to be enrolled in a minimum of 3 units per semester to be considered full time.

Unit of Study Often known as a ‘subject’ or a ‘unit’, a unit of study is a discrete component of a course which must be completed successfully in order for a student to progress to the next stage of a course. Typically, at VU, students take 4 units per semester and 8 units per year, each worth 12 credit points. The only exception is in Semester 2, Year 4 when you will only complete 3 units because one unit is worth 24 credit points. Core education units Core education units must be completed in order to successfully complete the B.Ed. (P-12). Core units include Praxis Inquiry units and Pedagogy Content Knowledge units.

Praxis Inquiry (PI) units From Semester 2 in the first year of the course, there is one Praxis Inquiry unit in each semester. These units make specific connections with preservice teachers’ experiences in schools and other educational settings. Project Partnerships reports are connected to these units. Pedagogy Content Knowledge (PCK) units To successfully complete this course, preservice teachers must complete 6 primary level PCK units (covering English, Maths, Science, Humanities, The Arts and Health/PE). Preservice teachers will usually complete 2 secondary level PCK units linked to Specialisation A and Specialisation B.

Project Partnerships Project Partnerships is the name given to the program and organisational unit in the College of Education that is responsible for placement of preservice teachers in schools and other educational settings. Over the course duration, preservice teachers in the B.Ed. (P-12) will complete over 100 days of supervised teaching practice in a range of educational settings. The majority of days need to be completed in a school environment that follows the Victorian curriculum guidelines and where the supervisor is registered, or able to be registered, by the VIT.

Elective units Electives are the units that you select based on your interests. A group of electives forms a specialisation but not all electives need to be connected to a specialisation. Specialisations Specialisations are the areas (sometimes called methods or specialisations) that you will be eligible to teach in a secondary school setting. Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) terminology Page 40 All information correct at time of printing Last updated 12/12/2014

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION 2015 Victorian Institute of Teaching and Victoria University The Victorian Institute of Teaching, often referred to as the ‘VIT’ registers teachers in Victoria and establishes guidelines for qualifications needed to teach in each specialist area. When you are enrolling you need to make sure that you select units that fit within the VIT Specialist Area Guidelines. The details provided on the following pages have been designed to help you with this process. The VIT also accredits teacher education courses. VU is accredited by the VIT to run teacher education courses. If you want to check the VIT website for the list of accredited teacher education courses in Victoria go to: http://www.vit.vic.edu.au.

Standards for Initial Teacher Education The VIT provides a detailed explanation of the minimum qualification requirements that graduating teachers need if they are to QUALIFY to teach. Go to: http://www.vit.vic.edu.au/finditfast/Teacher-education- programs/Pages/Standardsforinitialteachereducation.aspx for all you need to know about what you need to demonstrate to join the teaching profession. Specialist Area Guidelines The Specialist Area Guidelines are a detailed statement of specific requirements for teaching in secondary schools and other specialist areas such as Physical Education in primary schools. The VIT guidelines for each area of specialisation are detailed under alphabetical headings below. Please note that they are MINIMUM requirements and that if you want to teach a specialisation to VCE level then VU strongly advises that you complete additional units.

The Specialist Area Guidelines are at: http://www.vit.vic.edu.au/SiteCollectionDocuments/PDF/1672_Specialist-Area- Guidelines-Nov08.pdf . The Specialist Area Guidelines use the terms: One Year of Study, Major, Sub-Major, Part and Teaching Methodology. The definitions used by the VIT are also used by VU when providing course advice. You need to be familiar with these terms and how they define the minimum requirements you need to meet in particular teaching areas. One Year of Study One Year of Study is made up of 96 credit points (usually 8 units). Major A Major is a term used by the VIT to describe a group of 6 units in a particular field (e.g. Humanities, Science, Art and Physical Education) that together form an area of specialisation. This is sometimes called a teaching method or a specialisation area. Students should study no more than 2 of these units at Year level 1 and then usually complete 2 units at Year level 2 and 2 units at Year level 3. Most students in the B.Ed. (P-12) complete one major in an area they want to teach. This is equal to 72 credit points. Sub-Major A Sub-Major is a term used by the VIT to describe a group of 4 units that together form an area of specialisation/method/specialisation area. Students should study no more than 2 of these units at Year level 1. Most preservice teachers in the B.Ed. (P-12) complete one Sub-Major.

Part A Part is a term used by the VIT to describe 2 units in a particular specialisation. A part is usually connected to a sub major. MANAGING YOUR COURSE Having a correct enrolment and managing course progress is your responsibility. Course staff will offer advice, but it is your responsibility to ensure that you have completed the course requirements. Throughout your enrolment in the course, you should use this checker to monitor your progress and, whenever you seek advice about the course, you should prepare for the discussion by completing this checker.

Please note that you can remove this checker for ease of use as you require, but do not lose this page as it is your course overview and it is essential that you know and understand your progress. It is also essential that you are aware of your FAIL grades (N and UM) and understand the reasons for failure. Undertaking remedial action, including re-enrolling in failed units, at the earliest opportunity will avoid the deep disappointment, which occurs when an application to graduate – and thus qualify as a registered teacher – is rejected.

This document is designed to assist you in: • Understanding the structure of the Bachelor of Education (P-12) • Mapping your progress towards course completion, and • Planning your enrolment in future semesters. To successfully complete the course you need to complete a minimum of 31 units, including: Page 41 All information correct at time of printing Last updated 12/12/2014
