Schools and their Communities - EDMT6500

EDMT6500 is the third unit in the 'Study 1' suite of compulsory MTeach units (along with EDMT5676, EDMT5502 and EDMT6012). EDMT6500 builds on the previous two units through a focus on the relationship between schools and the community. This relationship will be investigated through exploration of the ways in which student and school success is measured and communicated to the wider community. This exploration will include consideration of the role and forms of assessment. Central to this unit will be the issues of diversity and equity in schooling. EDMT6500 connects to the final professional experience with an emphasis on pre-service teachers/counsellors directing their ongoing professional learning. EDMT6500 also leads into EDMT6012 through the exploration of specific issues/topics for self-directed professional learning.
