In this course you will be introduced to the concept of work-based learning and gain an understanding of the key workbased learning principles and processes. You will have the opportunity to define an area of inquiry/project or further development to strengthen your teaching and learning practice, and to construct and negotiate a learning agreement that outlines how you will undertake your inquiry or development.
The value of this course is in its opportunity to design a learning inquiry that is embedded in and develops your current practice and understandings. This process of determining the project area and shaping and documenting it will involve dialogue within your team and with your manager. The undertaking of the project is not part of this course – elective papers exist that can be used for this purpose.
The focus of the course is to enable you to build a solid justification for your learning project and show you have the necessary skills and understandings to do what you propose to do within the inquiry.
