Standard 6

Professional Engagement
Engage in Professional
Learning
For the last four years I have had numerous
opportunities to engage in professional learning.
Assessment tasks at University often included
group presentations, which provided opportunities
to collaborate with other pre-service teachers,
practice giving formative feedback and hence grow
as a pre-service teacher (6.3). During practicum
placements, mentor teachers offer formative
assessment to assist pre-service teachers in
developing their practice to improve student
learning. (6.4) As I transitioned into my fourth year
of study, I set professional goals for myself. One of
these included, engaging in professional
development to assist me in implementing
educational programs for Aboriginal and Torres
Strait Islander students. At a recent Personal
Development, Health and Physical Education
workshop, I completed part of my goal by attaining
a certificate in Traditional Indigenous Games
Presenter training. (6.1, 6.2)
