Bachelor of Teaching / Bachelor of Arts

The University of Adelaide

The Bachelor of Teaching program is a double degree designed for students who are beginning tertiary study. The focus in the first three years of the degree is on completing (in two different subject areas), two majors or a major and a minor sequence. The major and minor subject sequences are taken as part of the Bachelor of Arts. These subject areas chosen by students must be taught at senior secondary level (years 10-12) and be offered by the School of Education in the final year of the program. In each of these years students also take education courses designed to provide an on-going orientation to educational issues and practice. The first, second and third year education courses include assessed observation and experience in school contexts, one of which will be in a country school. The final year is aligned to secondary school terms and taken up entirely with education studies which are organised around three periods of supervised and assessed Professional Experience placements in secondary schools. To successfully complete courses, students will need to allocate an appropriate time commitment to their study. In addition to the formal contact the time required for each course (e.g. lectures, tutorials, practicals) students will need to allocate non-contact time. Non-contact time will be required for a range of activities which may include, but are not limited to, assessment tasks, reading, researching, note-taking, revision, writing, consultation with staff, and informal discussion with other students. While the relative proportion of contact and non-contact time may vary from course to course, as a guide, a full-time student would expect to spend, on average, a total of 48 hours per week on their studies during teaching periods. The workload for undergraduate programs is 24 units per year (full-time).

Structure:

The double degree provides students with the opportunity to pursue education courses from the beginning of their university studies. The primary focus in the first three years is on undertaking study in the two discipline areas in which the student intends to teach. This study generally includes courses taken at Levels 1, 2 and 3 of the degree program. These courses are taken as part of the degree program that accompanies the Bachelor of Teaching in the subject areas of the student's choice. In each of the first three years, students also take an education course designed to provide an on-going orientation to educational issues and practice. The first and second year education courses involve observation and experience in school contexts. The final year is taken up entirely with education studies and is commenced after the other degree is completed. Placements cover a total of 85 days in the Adelaide metropolitan area and country South Australia.
