About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This unit aims to develop students’ capacity to reflect on and develop their teaching practice and professional identity as practitioner researchers. Vital to this process is the capacity to use research to interpret current educational contexts and the implications for their role as teachers. Students will explore research processes including data collection, analysis techniques and the processes that experienced researchers take in order to ensure their research is valid, reliable, ethical, useful and socially responsible. Contemporary theories as well as social, cultural, economic and political structures important to the role and work of teachers will also be critically reviewed. In this unit students will challenge established, historical conceptualisations of ‘teacher’ to develop their own understanding of this role in contemporary, early childhood and primary education contexts.
