Formatted abstract
This paper outlines the Bachelor of Education (Graduate entry) course offered at the new Ipswich campus of the University of Queensland. The course is 4 semesters duration, is offered in intensive mode over 18 months, and prepares secondary teachers to teach in two subject areas. It aims to develop critically reflective practitioners to be knowledgeable in, and competent to deal with, the diverse learning needs of all students. The main features of the course are strong school/university partnerships which underpin the practicum program and the internship in the final semester. The community centre offers preservice teachers the opportunity to prepare and implement targeted programs for and with individuals and groups from the community. Flexible delivery of the university subjects incorporating web based material, computer managed communication and case based learning is a feature of the course. The session will explain how these attributes work together to provide a learning environment within which preservice teachers build their professional identities.
