This course has been designed for beginning teachers and experienced teachers who are teaching the Year 12 HSC Economics or Legal Studies course for the first time in Term 4 2017 or in 2018. It will also be beneficial for teachers who have already taught this course in the past but are in need of a refresher course or, teachers who intend to teach this course in the near future.
Each subject session will look at effective teaching and learning strategies designed to motivate and engage students, based on the current NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) syllabus. Assessment procedures and techniques (including the NESA external examination and how the examination is marked) and useful teaching and learning resources will also be looked at. The course will be presented by experienced teachers who will share their own experiences during their challenging early years of teaching and how they coped.
