Unit of study_

Education, Teachers and Teaching (EDUF1018)

This unit of study is the first of five core units that make up the program Education I-IV. It provides an introduction to key issues in education, including the complexity of teachers┬┐ work, the contested nature of the curriculum, and how formal learning functions in society. Equity and social justice are key themes that are examined by drawing upon knowledge in the sociology of education, cultural studies, curriculum theory, and educational research. Within this unit, students are also mentored by more experienced students during their first semester transition to the university. At the conclusion of the unit students should have developed and demonstrated a critical understanding of education, teachers and teaching.
