“I applied for various universities, with JCU as my number one preference. JCU has a good reputation for producing great teachers.” Colleen Bredden Bachelor of Education (Primary Education) Graduated 2012

Education A new direction JCU’s Bachelor of Education In 2014 the Bachelor of Education will be replaced by a set of three new Bachelor of Education courses: • Bachelor of Education Early Childhood Education • Bachelor of Education Primary • Bachelor of Education Secondary. The new degrees will follow JCU’s requirements surrounding graduate attributes, literacy, numeracy and a tropical agenda. They will be accredited with the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) and the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT). Four core education subjects will be taught across Level 1 (first year) of the three degrees. These will include: • Foundations of Education • Foundations of Educational Psychology • Foundations of Language & Literacy in Education • Foundations of Mathematics & Numeracy in Education • Teaching for Learning 4 (Fourth Year).

Enquiries 1800 246 446 | www.jcu.edu.au

The fourth-year subject will provide pre-service teachers with a capstone experience that has a particular emphasis on behaviour management, student assessment and reporting, rural and remote education and education in the tropics. Following the new Australian Curriculum, all Queensland primary schools will teach across all curriculum areas. The Bachelor of Education Primary will prepare students for this change and will align with the new curriculum.

New teaching facilities Semester 1, 2013 saw the opening of the new teaching facilities for the School of Education, based at the Townsville Campus, which will provide trainee teachers with access to the latest technologies and teaching techniques. The new building includes: • 150-seat collaborative (active) lecture theatre • 72-seat flat-floor active learning space

Students within the new Bachelor of Education Secondary will complete discipline subjects in two learning areas. This change will allow graduates to teach across two areas from Years 7 to 12. Majors in physical education and vocational education will also be available.

• 48-seat collaborative teaching laboratory

The final change to the three Bachelor of Education courses is the introduction of AITSL Graduate Teacher Standards to all subjects. These replace the Queensland College of Teachers Standards. Graduates from James Cook University’s School of Education will be qualified to teach in both Australia and overseas.

A focus on collaborative learning will allow staff and students to explore the connection between technology and new teaching and learning techniques.

• 48-seat collaborative wet teaching laboratory • 36-plus-seat flexible flat-floor seminar/ conference room • Peer-to-Peer learning centre.

Sarah Chapman Bachelor of Education-Bachelor of Science (Honours), Graduated 2003 Science Head of Department, Townsville State High School

JCU staff were extremely skilled and helpful, and the course’s internship program allowed me to participate in school life and curriculum development before I’d graduated. Prior to doing my Education degree, I was a science and technology conference coordinator. I was told I was good at explaining things, so I decided to use my science and honours degrees to enthuse others into pursuing science as a worthwhile career option. I loved studying at JCU and living on campus was a really positive experience. The education classes provided small group discussions to share ideas and develop professional relationships even before I began teaching.

As well as my high school position, I work with a cluster primary school implementing a Transition Science Program for Years 5 and 7, where we do fun things like examining the elasticity of lolly snakes. The high school’s program is linked to the cluster school’s program so students remain engaged with their science education during their transitional period. It means students become critical, analytical thinkers and the flow-on effect makes them become better citizens. Teaching is a very rewarding profession but it does require

a lot of commitment. Being a people person really helps as you’re always dealing with a variety of personalities, but it’s the everyday challenges that make me want to be a lifelong learner. In 2009, I received a Teaching Excellence Award, which was great recognition for my work. Education really is an inspirational career because it’s your students who will change the world.

About James Cook University Strong foundations

Internationally recognised

JAMES COOK UNIVERSITY (JCU) is the second oldest university in Queensland and a high-ranking teaching and research institution, with around 19,000 students. Our main campuses are located in the tropical cities of Cairns, Singapore and Townsville. Singapore is a thriving business hub for Asia, and the Cairns and Townsville campuses in Australia are close to two World Heritage sites: the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and the rainforests of the Wet Tropics Region. Our distinctive character is linked to our location in the tropics and many courses include tropical, rural, remote and global perspectives. We also have study centres located in Mackay, Mount Isa and Thursday Island, and there is a Russo Higher Education operated campus located in Brisbane delivering undergraduate degrees to international students on behalf and in co-operation with JCU.

A JCU qualification is internationally recognised for excellence.

We offered our first courses in Townsville in 1961 as an annex of the University of Queensland. JCU became a university in its own right on 20 April 1970 when Queen Elizabeth signed the proclamation in Townsville.

The Institute of Higher Education, which compiles the Academic Ranking of World Universities, ranks JCU as one of the world’s leading academic and research institutions. In 2011, JCU was placed in the top 301-400 grouping of more than 14,000 universities in the world.* In Asia and the Pacific, we are placed in the top 100.**

James Cook University campuses JCU’s main campuses are in Cairns, Singapore and Townsville. We also have a campus in Brisbane focussing on international students. Cairns Cairns’ idyllic location has seen it evolve from a small seaport, servicing busy industries inland, to a popular tropical destination for visitors from around the world. Cairns lies 350 kilometres north of Townsville, and its population of more than 170,000 people enjoy life in a cosmopolitan coastal city, uniquely positioned between two World Heritage-listed natural icons – the coral reefs of the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforests of the Wet Tropics Region. So accessible are these regions from Cairns, visitors can enjoy both in one day. Cairns campus The Cairns campus is located at the foot of rainforest-covered mountains, 15 kilometres north

What to expect at university University is an independent learning environment that will develop your confidence as well as your knowledge and skills. How is university different from school?

Full time or part time – what’s involved?

Study at university is self-directed. You are responsible for keeping up to date with your study material, weekly reading, practical tasks and submitting assignments on time. You will be immersed in your study area and encouraged to express your thoughts and opinions. If you make the most of your studies, it can be one of the most stimulating and exciting times of your life.

For full-time students taking eight subjects (or 24 credit points) a year, the combination of lectures, tutorials, practical sessions plus reading and preparation time at home, will add up to around 40 hours per week. This is the equivalent of a full-time job. Part-time options are available for most JCU courses, giving flexibility for students with work or family commitments.

Although it’s an independent learning environment, this doesn’t mean you won’t have help when you need it. For example, student mentors are available to answer your questions and to give advice on what to expect in your classes. Free study skills classes in, for example, time management and essay writing will help you stay on top of your study commitments.

Returning to study? Going to university as a mature-age student can be daunting, but more and more people are discovering that with the stimulation and confidence that university study brings, you gain far more than just a degree. To help you find your feet before you begin studying, JCU offers a five-day orientation course called Uniprep.

Education

How often will I have to go? Each subject has its own amount of contact hours, which are the number of hours you are required to be on campus each week. It depends on your course and your subjects. Usually you can arrange your timetable so that you can have at least one day when you have no scheduled contact hours.

Lectures and tutorials – what’s the difference? Lectures involve a lecturer presenting information to many students in a lecture theatre. In this situation there is limited interaction between the lecturer and the students. Tutorials, however, are small groups of students, led by a

tutor, in which you cover the unit material and interact with the tutor and other students. The tutors are there to help you to understand the material and to expand on it. Some courses also include regular laboratory and practical sessions, field trips or work placements. Some subjects combine lectures and tutorials into lectorials.

Flexible options You can usually design your study timetable to fit around the rest of your life. At JCU the majority of subjects are delivered on campus by face-to-face teaching. A growing number of subjects are also available online (flexible delivery mode), which allows you to fit your study around other commitments. Some subjects will be available in short blocks, known as ‘intensives’ and held during vacations. In addition, our online services for students mean you can complete many tasks from your home computer.

Assessment Assessment methods vary between subjects. Generally a subject will have written assignments and examinations. Other assessment could include: tutorial presentations, participation in lectures and

tutorials, contribution to discussions, and the completion of practical, field or laboratory work. Familiarise yourself with the assessment needs early in your subject so you can be well prepared.

Work placements JCU believes in offering students practical opportunities throughout their studies. That’s why many courses include field trips and work placement components. Placements can occur during study or vacation periods, and could take place throughout northern Queensland, into Asia Pacific or further afield. Many of our graduat es progress to full-time careers with their work placement employers.

Service learning

On your marks â&#x20AC;Ś

Service learning is designed to broaden your education skills and experience by developing or participating in a project related to your role as a teacher. The School of Education encourages you to focus on a sustainability project during this experience.

While assessment methods vary between subjects and courses, generally your assessment will reflect the real work of a teacher preparing a lesson plan, reviewing teacher practice or preparing resources for teaching. In addition, you will be required to provide written assignments such as essays, projects and examinations. Assessment may also be based on giving tutorials or presentations, attending lectures and tutorials, contributing to discussions or completing practical work.

You will focus on activities that promote social and environmental responsibility and the skills you learn will prepare you for future roles with students and in the wider community. You may be able to participate in interstate or overseas projects.

Core skills Literacy and numeracy are core skills you need to study education at JCU. During your course you will receive feedback on your skill level in these areas.


Become a teacher & inspire young minds Teaching is often said to be a calling rather than a job. When you think about the powerful impact an inspiring teacher can have on a student’s motivation, thirst for knowledge, preparation for life and career direction, the importance of teaching as a profession is clear.

Colleen Bredden Studying Bachelor of Education

Throughout my schooling I had a habit of helping my friends with their work when they were struggling. I could explain it in a way they would understand and I always enjoyed seeing their excitement when they reached the right answer. I took a year off after high school and during that time I knew I wanted to study education. I applied to various universities, with JCU as my number one preference. JCU has a good reputation for producing great teachers and Townsville was close to my hometown of Charters Towers. I discovered the Eyles, Hampe, Scholes and Buhôt (EHSB) scholarship, established to attract people who wanted to be good teachers, via the JCU website and applied right away. It was the first year that the scholarship was offered and I was successful.

The scholarship has allowed me to learn and develop my skills in the classroom and put educational theories into practice, while studying. Because of the extra classroom time I have had, I can concentrate on polishing my other skills during my professional work experience. My confidence in the school environment has also improved. By completing my mentoring experience at different schools, the scholarship has helped me build professional relationships. I have seen different teaching styles and methods and I have developed a support network

of teachers who share ideas, opinions and provide guidance. Working with teachers in diverse classrooms has also helped my skills in getting to know students. What I enjoy most about my course is working with students in the classroom. It’s a wonderful experience and JCU allows you to complete your professional experience in different states, rural towns or urban cities. After graduation I plan to go back home to Charters Towers, as it is a welcoming community and I look forward to teaching my own students. Enquiries 1800 246 446 ~ www.jcu.edu.au

Joanne Lilly Studying Bachelor of Education (Primary)

In Year Two at school I was sent home because I couldn’t write my own name and I was asked by my teacher to practice it at home. I am now the first person in my family to go to university. Wanting to give back to Indigenous education was the main reason I chose my particular area of study. Education is a major part of what is needed to close the gap and will increase the positive outcomes in other areas such as housing, economics and general wellbeing. To see your students be part of making that difference would be wonderful. Now there are many initiatives and programs in place where Indigenous people have more opportunities. Programs such as the Remote Area Teacher Education Program (RATEP) have supported me in achieving results, and I was awarded the Academic

Undergraduate Award (NAIDOC) for my efforts. I started studying at TAFE doing a diploma, which meant I only had three years to complete a full degree with JCU. Because of my family commitments at the time, I did ask myself the question, ‘do I want to do this or not?’ But in the diploma year I had the opportunity to visit an Indigenous community school in Alice Springs and realised that yes, I really did want to do this.

Being able to study externally means being able to balance family and home life while being a full-time student. I also have some amazing ‘study buddies’ – girls from Mossman, Maryborough and the Torres Strait. Their support and networking has been critical for me. When I finish I hope to be a classroom teacher in the Tablelands/Johnstone region. For me it’s all about passing on opportunities to children and validating their faces and voices.

Aaron Parrish Bachelor of Education (Secondary), Graduated 2011 Mathematics Teacher, Education Queensland, Townsville

I have known since I was in Year 8 that I wanted to be a teacher. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always liked teaching others what I know and chose to specialise in Mathematics and Business because of my strong interest in these areas. As soon as I graduated from high school, I was lucky enough to be given a job as a teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aide. Therefore, I was able to work at a high school while completing my degree at JCU. This gave me great insight into my prospective career, and I knew what the job was going to be like, which is great.

The highlight of my time at JCU was my professional experience placements. These placements enabled me to travel to places such as Mount Isa and the Atherton Tablelands. Plus, I was able to gain a variety of different experiences and meet other educators in Queensland.

What I enjoyed most about the course at JCU was the flexibility, as it allowed me to work in a local school while completing my studies.

In a typical week studying my course, I attended scheduled lectures, workshops and tutorials, studied in my own time, socialised with friends and worked part time.

Since graduation, I have secured a position with Education Queensland at a local high school in Townsville. I have registered with the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT) and I am looking forward to a challenging yet rewarding year ahead.

Daniel Egan Studying Bachelor of Education (Primary, Physical Education)

My biggest concern was that I hadn’t studied since high school, but JCU have incredible programs to help mature age students bridge the gap and get back into study. They made it very easy. My previous career spanned 14 years playing in the National Basketball League with the Melbourne Tigers, the Brisbane Bullets and the Townsville Crocs. One of the requirements of professional basketball players is to go into school communities and promote the game. After all those years of teaching kids basketball, I realised I had extensive experience working in schools, plus I really enjoyed it. I wanted a definite career I could still be doing in 20 years

time so I enrolled in a Bachelor of Education at JCU. I like the facilities at the Townsville campus and enjoy spending time researching in the library and just chilling out in the cafés. The education degree covers an array of different interests. I’m undertaking the physical education major, so it’s an advantage having played basketball. My course is 75 per cent education based and 25 per cent sports science, so I’m

enjoying learning how the body works and relating it to what I have done before. When I’m on prac, I tell the students you can’t play career sport forever, and I’ve seen a real turn around in their attitudes when I explain the importance of study. When I graduate I’d like to teach overseas initially, then return to northern Queensland and become a classroom and physical education teacher. If I can develop a basketball program at the school, that will be a real bonus. Enquiries 1800 246 446 ~ www.jcu.edu.au

Students can select an area of teaching specialisation to Year 12 level. Options include English, History, Biology, Maths, Chemistry or Physics. Special Needs major A major in Special Needs allows you to work with children who have learning difficulties and improve a broad range of skills including awareness, life skills, literacy and numeracy.
