Abstract

Enticing teachers to work in remote locations is of concern globally and in the Australian context universities work hard to develop effective interventions and strategies to address the dearth of pre-service teachers willing to consider future practice in such contexts. This chapter reports the findings from an evaluation of one specific intervention at a regional Australian University, where a stand-alone elective course has been developed called Teaching in rural and remote communities. This course has been developed using a case-based pedagogical approach to explore key themes of structure, teaching practices and curriculum delivery methods in context. Within these key themes a plethora of topics are investigated in depth by students using an experiential approach. The course design and delivery is supported by an embedded evaluation framework that is focused on understanding the impact of engagement on student's changing understandings and perspectives of future practice in rural and remote locations.
