This site is focused on the professional experience component (the practicum) of teacher preparation – or ‘prac’ as many of us know it.
Project Evidence has been developed to guide and inform key stakeholders in the practicum – namely experienced teachers in schools, the preservice teachers and teacher educators. Project Evidence is the result of an Australian Learning & Teaching Council Grant and has been developed on the understanding that quality professional experiences depend on the school sites being viewed as places of learning, reflective practice, and assessment.
With this in mind, the website provides information, activities and resources to inform experienced teachers and preservice teachers about the learning, the demonstration of that learning and the judgements made about the achievement of that learning. The materials, activities and examples presented throughout the website are intended as stimulus for professional learning opportunities – not as ‘answers’ in and of themselves.
Many of the suggested activities are closely linked to our sister site http://www.teacherassessment.net/
