About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This unit will provide students with the opportunity to explore key concepts of learning and teaching in the curriculum areas of social studies, history, geography, place studies, civics and citizenship, economics, sustainability and environmental education and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander studies in early childhood and primary education. The unit will encourage pre-service educators to develop their philosophy and practice of teaching and learning, particularly within the contexts of a rapidly changing and dynamic human global culture that has significant cultural, historical, social and environmental dimensions. The unit will cover a broad, complex and engaging field of study reflecting that people are social beings who interact with one another and with the natural and social environments through and over time. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives, socio-cultural influences and place-based pedagogies will be investigated, and relevant policy and regulation documents around risk, play and pedagogy will be examined.
