About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This unit builds on the premise that in contemporary education environments teachers continue to develop their professional knowledge and practice through their engagement in reflective inquiry. The capacity to read and make sense of research is an important professional attribute for teachers interested in sustainable practices, engaged inquiry learning by adolescents, and diversity, social justice and equity. The unit provides pre-service teachers with a starting point and practical insights into the day-to-day decision making of educators. The content will follow the order and logic that experienced researchers take in order to ensure quality in their research, and also to ensure that it is valid, reliable, ethical, useful and socially responsible. Given the professional skills required by teachers, the unit pays particular attention to the elements involved in action research.
