This course should take you about 2 hours to complete. At the end of which you will be able to explain the Teaching Learning Cycle (also known as the Curriculum Cycle), apply it to your own practice, and plan how you can use it to support the learning of students for whom English is an Additional Language or Dialect, within the context of your classroom environment, selecting and using effective teaching strategies to integrate ICT into learning and teaching programs to make selected content relevant and meaningful.

The course is all about helping you to understand the Teaching Learning Cycle (also known as the Curriculum Cycle) as a framework for classroom planning. In the course, I give you a brief introduction to how it evolved, then go in detail through each of the sections of the cycle, showing you how it works in practice, but also how it can be used to support the learning of EAL/D students in any classroom. I conclude by showing you how to use it for planning in any classroom, using a senior school psychology class as an example.

The sessions are tied to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at the Proficient levels at standards 1 (1.3.2), 2 (2.6.2) and 3 (3.2.2) but they are applicable at any level of course!
