About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions.The unit explores diversity, social justice, equity and learning through the multi-layered operation of social power and privilege. It advances students’ understanding of how social and cultural difference in Australia has shaped contemporary education, schooling and cross-cultural relationships. In particular, the unit examines diversity as a social construct that has promoted the differential treatment of particular social and cultural groups and served as the basis for response to subsequent social and cultural inequities by these groups. The unit engages students in critical analysis essential for professional pedagogical practice in education for diversity and social justice in Australia and beyond.
