Strong partnerships with schools and early childhood centre’s support an extensive program of teaching, research and community engagement.
The ECU Fogarty Professional Learning Centre at Roseworth Primary School has a classroom oriented observation room and video facilities, while the on-campus Fogarty Learning Centre (FLC) supports a rich research agenda in the areas of teaching of language and literacy, numeracy, science and classroom management.
Our teaching students work with staff in schools to explore how the latest teaching methods work to improve children’s learning. Literacy Coaching units in the Primary and Early Childhood programs, funded by the Fogarty Foundation, give teaching students opportunities to work one-on-one with individual children over many weeks to assess a child’s literacy needs and to plan, implement and evaluate a reading support program.
The Fogarty Foundation also funds maths coaching clinics for primary school students as well as parent workshops designed to help parents support their children’s maths development at home. Fogarty scholarships also support graduates undertaking further specialist studies in education through a Graduate Certificate in Learning Difficulties.
This after school program teaches students to plan and prepare engaging maths activities to support and enhance young children’s mathematical understanding.
