Course aim

To introduce critical perspectives on the theory and practice of pedagogy, curriculum and assessment across diverse learning settings.

Course content

Students will develop a critical engagement with the social and political influences on education, for the purpose of developing informed social justice pedagogic approaches to teaching and learning. Students will build depth of understanding in critical perspectives on identity and belonging in the institution of education, the ways in which diversity (class and cultural capital, gender/sexuality, inter/multi culturalism/race, religion) is in tension with systematic/institutional privilege. Students will develop understanding and a metalanguage to know about students with diverse linguistic, cultural; religious and economic backgrounds with a focus on Indigenous knowledge and perspectives, migrant communities and Asia literacy.
