This unit of study builds on the knowledge, understandings, skills and attitudes explored and developed in Pedagogy and Professional Practice 1 and other education units in relation to teachers' work in schools and classrooms. This unit of study explores the themes of social justice practice with a particular focus on issues of access, participation and diversity through an examination of quality teaching practices and policy support. Through reflection students are able to examine and interpret their beliefs about students, teachers, learning, teaching, schools and knowledge. Professional practice is developed and refined as students use their own knowledge and experiences in professional conversations with peers and expert practitioners to critically map their own practices against current theory and research.
