The Bachelor of Education (Primary) has been designed for people who wish to teach at primary school level. The degree has a strong English and Mathematics focus with a student-centred approach to teaching and learning. The program integrates education theory with classroom practice for all areas. Core units in this degree cover the essential topics of digital literacy, planning lessons, classroom management, understanding learning difficulties and special education. School experience begins with observations and discussions of the wide variety of effective teaching strategies and, over the duration of the degree, will continue with workshops and periods of block teaching which culminate in a whole term internship.
