Aims This is a practical unit designed to introduce drama as a form of creative expression. The emphasis will be on experience by the participants rather than communication with an audience. Activities, centred on improvisation, will be directed towards increased concentration, better vocal control, development of expressive movement, and engagement of the intellect and imagination.

Attention could be focused on: drama as a means of self- expression, the use of drama in the learning of many subjects, the relation between drama skills and teaching skills.

Assessment is cumulative and is based on written assignments, practical activities and class participation.

The aim of this unit is to increase the student's knowledge of the component parts of a production, as a means of promoting a better understanding of the theatre. Consider- ation will be given to the roles of the director, actor, stage manager and designer. The emphasis will be on visits to theatres, plays, rehearsals, workshops and discussion with people who are actively engaged in some aspect of profess- ional theatre. Different kinds of theatre will be observed and the presentation and skills involved will be discussed, as well as the increasing involvement of playwrights with contemporary social issues. The kinds of theatre will include entertainment for children, social reform, musical,



straight, farce and street theatre. The unit will assist teachers who wish to engage in theatrical productions for the school or the community.

Aims This is a unit designed to promote a greater understanding of the technical aspects of theatre. It will involve practical work in set designing, use of make-up, stage lighting and stage managing. There will be emphasis placed on the role of the producer, the interpretation of the play, character- isation, groupings, relationships as well as the increasing involvement of theatre with contemporary social issues.

It is expected that the semester will culminate in a practical activity based on the work undertaken during the unit.

The unit will assist teachers who want to produce plays for the school or for the community.

Encourages participants to develop their abilities in creative self-expression.

The major questions any serious creative writers must eventually ask themselves are:

—What do I have to say?

—How can I best say it?






The ways in which self-expression contributes to the growth of self-awareness will be explored.

Writers will be encouraged to explore various modes of expression:

dialogue- plays for theatre, scripts for television and radio, film scenarios.

prose- short stories, children's literature, novels, journalism, documentary features.

poetry- all forms and styles.

School Experience Students enrolled in the subject of Teaching Practice, which is an integral part of their total school experience program, are required to undertake a number of supervised teaching experiences each week throughout the academic year.


Those students preparing to teach at the secondary and middle levels (in the Graduate Diploma in Education course) will normally spend two days each week in their training schools or colleges throughout the year and teach, under supervision, a prescribed number of lessons (or other experiences) each week. An approved supervisor, who will be an experienced teacher in the student's training school or college will write a constructively initial report on each session supervised. These reports, together with those prepared by College lecturers who will visit each student during the year, are intended to help the 'trainee': they are not used as a basis for the final assessment of the student's teaching ability.

Each supervised session will be supported by a written plan which should focus attention on the objectives of the session, and the means by which the student (and the class) will attempt to achieve them. The plan will make it easier to consider the effectiveness of the session in the light of what was intended as well as what actually happened.

Final results in Teaching Practice are determined only after considering the recommendations of both the training schools and College staff.




The course for the Diploma of Technical Teaching, a diploma registered by the Australian Council on Awards in Advanced Education in category U.G.2, comprises two parts:

1. A Core program consisting mainly of professional studies.

2. A Complementary program consisting entirely or predominantly of specialist studies.

The Core program is undertaken at the College by all candidates and takes two years to complete. During this time, candidates spend two days each week throughout two academic years in the College studying the academic components of the course, and three days each week in the school or college to which they are attached, under- taking their school experience (or teaching practice).

The Complementary program, which constitutes the third year of the course, may have been wholly or partly completed before commencing the Core program, or may be undertaken or completed at the conclusion of the Core program. This flexible arrangement is designed to cater to the diverse backgrounds of non-graduate entrants to technical teaching. It is intended that those entrants who lack the complementary program requirements will normally complete those requirements by part time study following the Core program.

It is also intended that those requirements will ensure that graduates will have acquired expert knowledge and skills in their specialized field to a level substantially beyond that at which they will be required to teach. The requirements may also accommodate studies which will contribute to the further development of candidates as educators and as educated persons.

The College will determine what credit may be granted for previous studies, and will advise on, approve and supervise individual programs of further study. It will also provide some studies which will be suitable for inclusion in particular programs.



The course is available to suitably qualified candidates who are preparing to teach in such subject areas as Carpentry and Joinery, Plumbing, Metal Fabrication, Hairdressing, Automotive Trades, Wool Classing, and so on.

The Core program of the course is normally subject-based (see below), although an alternative integrated program is also available to selected students which is designed to give participants the maximum opportunity to integrate and unify their learning experiences. The Integrated Studies Program involves sixty students selected from four nominated trade areas working co-operatively with a team of staff members in varying groupings suited for professional, general or specialist studies. The program is highly supportive placing emphasis on meeting immediate needs, on developing skills and understandings, and on encouraging progress towards confident self-direction.
