This assignment has two parts and is based on your subject and module readings including relevant additional readings. Part 1 Think about the work that you have done in the problem based learning scenario in Module 2. Identify the learning approaches that are likely to be most effective in your context. Review the options that you identified at the beginning of Module 2 where you were given options 1-4. In your response include at least some work-based learning and discuss why you have chosen this particular work-based learning approach. Specifically: What learning and assessment strategies could be used? What environments might the learning take place in, and how would you facilitate learning in that environment? E.g. the work place; online; one on one consultancy or mentoring; in teams; face to face workshops. What is it that the students will do? Include discussion of the work-based learning theories that have informed your decisions Part 2 Consider the reflective practice approaches that you have engaged in throughout this subject. What approaches work for you? What approaches do not work or are less effective for you? What strategies could you put in place to ensure ongoing reflective practice in relation to your work? Use marking criteria for information about where to concentrate your efforts in this assignment task. If you do not presently work as a teacher or trainer, then for the purposes of this assignment imagine the teaching and learning context that you would like to be teaching in. Rationale This assignment asks you to reflect on your VET and industry context to develop a ‘blue skies’ approach to your teaching and learning and assessment practice. Often we are so entrenched by what has been done before in our own particular context that we fail to see approaches that might better meet learners personal and occupational learning needs. The assignment asks you to reflect on your reflective practice and to identity what works for you, what does not work for you, and how you can embed useful reflection into your ongoing teaching and learning practice. You began to think about this for the first assignment, and I would expect that you have taken your thinking further by this assignment. Marking criteria HIGH DISTINCTION DISTINCTION CREDIT PASS FAIL Capacity to analyse classroom and workplace environments for their learning potential Teaching and learning and assessment approaches are clearly informed by a critical and reflective analysis of own teaching environments or future environments showing depth of knowledge and understanding. Analysis includes discussion of adaptations that may be needed to meet the needs of a range of students Demonstrates a comprehensive understanding of the issues and a capacity to relate them to own practice as well as to a wider context Teaching and learning and assessment approaches are clearly informed by reflection on own context as well as analysis of learning environments and approaches that best meet learner and employer needs now and into the future Evidence of analysis of own context (or future context) to identify and develop appropriate teaching and learning and assessment approaches Little evidence of analysis of classroom or workplace environments in development of teaching and learning and assessment approaches Be able to discuss a range of work based learning theories and their usefulness in a variety of situations Response demonstrates a deep, knowledgeable and insightful understanding of work based learning theories and their application in own practice as well as more broadly. Factors that support or provide barriers to student learning in workplace contexts are well integrated into response Response shows a strong understanding of work based learning theories and their application in own practice. Factors that support or provide barriers to student learning in workplace contexts are discussed. Discussion of a number of relevant work based learning theories and their application in own context Discussion of at least one relevant work based learning theory and its application in own context. Discussion of work based learning theory does not show evidence of accurate understanding of the theory. Little or no discussion of the application of a work based learning theory Use of current professional literature to inform development of own practice Links issues from own practice (and/or future practice) with relevant professional reading showing how the reading can influence own practice. Shows evidence of wide independent reading Links issues from own practice (and/or future practice) with relevant professional reading showing how the reading can influence own practice. Shows evidence of wide independent reading Discussion of development of own practice (and/or future practice) in relation to relevant professional literature, showing evidence of wider reading and some independently sourced literature Discussion of own practice (and/or future practice) in relation to relevant professional literature, using at least 8 relevant references. Littler or no discussion of own practice (or of future practice). Discussion of own practice not related to professional literature. Uses less than 8 relevant references. Identify and use strategies for effective reflection on professional practice Response reflects deep, knowledgeable and insightful reflection on own professional practice Shows strong awareness of own approaches to reflection and considers a number of other approaches for integration into own practice Evidence of critical reflection on own current or future practice Evidence of reflection on own current or future professional practice Little or no evidence of reflection on own current or future practice Academic skills Succinct and skilled academic writing that clearly integrates existing knowledge, professional literature, and own teaching and learning context. Demonstrates clarity of argument through succinct and skilled writing Arguments are clearly made using an appropriate academic writing style Addresses all sections of the task. Sentence and paragraph structure is clear, and logical. Does not address all sections of the task. Uses less than 8 relevant references. Poor academic skills in expression, argument, structure and paragraphing, and referencing Note: The criteria for the lower grade needs to be met before being eligible for higher grades. Presentation I would prefer it if you wrote the assignment in first person (ie using “I” and “me”) where appropriate. I recommend that you use headings – to support you in structuring your arguments, and to ensure that you explicitly address all sections of the assignment. Also, please provide an overview of your context or the context that you are using as the basis for this assignment within the first page or two of the assignment.
