About this Unit
In 2015 this unit replaced by 102071 Culture, Subjectivities and Schooling. Education is a complex field comprised of diverse and dynamic teacher, student and community populations. This unit examines the socio-political, economic and cultural milieu that shapes teachers' work and school education in an increasingly multifaceted, globalized environment. It is essential those interested in education or related human services, engage with and understand the diversity of both individuals and broader community to promote equitable practices and to facilitate educational and professional transformation. Developing sociological understandings of education, knowledge, society and change provides students with an enhanced awareness of equity issues as well as crucial analytical and critical tools to address diverse needs in complex and ever-changing professional contexts.
