Teaching


Teaching The Bachelor of Teaching double degrees prepare students for teaching in middle and secondary schools. It is also a suitable option for graduates who would like to work with adult learners or in the fields of alternative curricula. The double degree enables students to pursue other interests whilst studying education. Disciplines are available in many fields including: accounting, business studies, economics, English, geography, history, information technology, languages, science, English as a second language (ESL) and alternative curricula. Bachelor of Teaching students are also able to study a combination of science, maths and IT subjects not offered at other local institutions.

Global Learning The University of Adelaide is committed to offering all its students the opportunity to study overseas through a range of programs including student exchange, study tours and summer and winter schools. There are many exciting opportunities in the Americas, Europe and Asia. For the most up-to-date information about these programs please visit www. adelaide.edu.au/student/study_abroad

Teachers with a focus in these areas are currently in demand within the profession. The University of Adelaide is an innovative, research intensive university. Consequently, there is a strong nexus between research, teaching and learning. This underpins the structure of degrees, and the courses included in them. In the second semester of their first year, teaching students participate in an observation placement in a local primary school. This provides professional experience working with students, teachers and a school community. In the third year, students are placed in country secondary schools for one week to gain valuable experience and build on the theoretical knowledge they have acquired. In the fourth year of the degree, students participate in two, five-week professional placements within secondary schools in metropolitan and country South Australia. These placements provide hands on teaching experience within the subject area of a student’s degree. Students in fourth year may also elect to participate in the internship program that is held in association with a number of Adelaide schools.

In years three and four, students are encouraged to participate in overseas placements. Undertaking an overseas placement exposes students to different teaching techniques from other cultures, enriches their study experience and expands their knowledge. Bachelor of Teaching students have participated in programs in Peru, Singapore, Germany, Italy, the United States of America, China and other countries. Upon graduation students can register to work as teachers in South Australia and in popular overseas locations such as Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States. University of Adelaide teaching graduates are highly sought after with local schools that are keen to employ new graduates each year. By studying teaching at the University of Adelaide students have the potential to become one of the leading educators in South Australia and beyond.

More about placements Throughout the teaching degree there are a number of placement (also known as ‘practicum’) opportunities. These include the country secondary school placement, internship placements with partner schools and international placements. The country secondary school placement is undertaken in year three of the degree. Accommodation and travel is provided for by the University’s School of Education.

Fit uni into your life Attendance at university is less structured than time spent at high school. The hours spent on campus in lectures, tutorials, practicals or in the field—known as ‘contact hours’— depend on the program students enrol in, study mode selected (internal, external, online or flexible learning) and course choices. This diary snapshot is only one example of how a student may choose to schedule their university study and life.

International placements Students in years three and four are able to participate in formal and informal international placements.

These placements can be granted as credit towards the degree provided they meet the requirements of the year level course.

BEE Connected provides students with a relaxed and social way to meet new friends during the first eight weeks of the university experience.

Further information Student study commitment To successfully complete courses, students will need to allocate an appropriate time commitment to their study. In addition to the formal contact time required for each course (e.g. lectures, tutorials, teaching practicums) 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 eight courses per year (full-time).
