The Sounds from the Engine Room - We're at the point now where…accommodation has become second nature to us.
But that's nothing new—all TAFE teachers have to make adjustments like that!In our case, we've also implemented a play session [practical work in a real child-care centre where learning experiences can be monitored and tailored in-house].That's been the most radical aspect of our teaching. It's run as close as we can to a commercial child care centre, except that the students have written all the policies and procedures, they have meetings about improvement.We're even discussing how we can work with a hypothetical amount of money so they can practice budgeting and prioritising.
The whole set-up is a response to a variety of needs that learners have—learning styles, ethnic background, level of practical experience, and a multitude of others.
Every student is required to be involved in play sessions, but once we're aware of particular needs that students have, our staff get to work and start tailoring the program.
