The teacher education unit Early Childhood Learning Environments offers student teachers the opportunity to examine a range of theoretical perspectives, key concepts and contemporary issues related to the design of early childhood learning environments that promote children's learning. Unit learning objectives include identifying keywords and metaphors used to identify desirable characteristics of an early years learning environment, developing skills in designing provocations that promote multiliteracies, and reflecting upon a range of educational activities that can build children's awareness and respect towards the natural environment. One assessment component requires the student teachers to collaborate in small groups to design and share online PowerPoint presentations of a provocation made from recycled materials that can be readily integrated in an early childhood learning environment and addresses the new National Quality Standard for early childhood education and care (Quality Area 3: Physical Environment). This presentation will examine the learning processes involved when designing, developing and evaluating an authentic online educational assessment.
