Simulations can allow teachers to trial curriculum content and teaching strategies in non-threatening scenarios. In this instance, the teacher has knowledge of the curriculum content: a literacy strategy that assists students to decode and deconstruct complex and unfamiliar texts. Knowledge of content is only the first step, as it also needs to be supported by effective teaching and learning. Following the simulated lesson, he acknowledges that he needs to more actively control the learning in order to make the content work through more effective teaching strategies. Introduction to University Culture is a course designed and taught by qualified teachers as part of the University Preparatory Program. It offers several topics to help students build the skills they will need for university study.
