This unit is part B of a two-part unit and must be taken in conjunction with part A (EDF5121).
This unit builds on EDF5121 (Accounting education in the secondary years A), enabling pre-service education students to continue to build a strong foundation for their career-long professional learning as secondary school teachers of accounting and related commerce studies. Students further their understanding of key theoretical and pedagogical perspectives and issues in the teaching of accounting and related curriculum. Through an examination of a range of curricula drawn from state, national and international contexts, students gain deeper understandings of current developments in the theory, research and practice of accounting education. Students work independently, collaboratively and interdependently to develop their capabilities in planning and implementing appropriate curriculum and pedagogy. They undertake research into the design of a comprehensive teaching and learning plan suitable for teaching post-compulsory accounting content. The unit reinforces a view of learning about teaching as an ongoing, collaborative process that is developed through critical reflection on experience.
Upon successful completion of this unit students should be able to:
- demonstrate knowledge of relevant discipline areas associated with the teaching and learning of accounting and related studies across Years 7 to 12
- research, select and evaluate appropriate teaching and learning resources for accounting and related studies
- set clear, challenging and achievable goals for students in their learning of accounting and related studies
- research and design innovative teaching and learning procedures and plans to engage and motivate the diverse range of learners in every classroom
- demonstrate a capacity to draw on a range of teaching approaches, including the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs), in ways that align with pedagogical intentions
- create assessment tasks that are purposeful and relevant to the teaching and learning accounting program and the learning needs of students
- employ accountable and theoretically grounded processes to monitor and assess student learning and progress
- critically evaluate their practicum experiences of teaching accounting and related studies in schools and other settings.
