T-minus 1.5 days until prac starts.
Cue freakout now.
Not only is prac a great opportunity to enhance our skills as prospective teachers, put theory into practice, and test our ability to handle ridiculous amounts of stress, it also serves as the perfect platform for gathering evidence of our teaching. Everyone should be well aware of the fact that we must meet the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) standards – all seven of them, and their sub-components – and showcase how we meet them within our ePortfolio.
ePortfolio – whole other kettle of fish right there.
The great thing is that AITSL has developed an app to gather and sort your evidence in alignment with the standards.
So, before you go on prac, it’s a really good idea to check out the app and how you may be able to use it on your professional experience. We all know that collecting evidence over time is sooooo much better than frantically trying to find something at the end of fourth year.
