About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This unit involves the study of pedagogy in contexts regarded as challenging. The main focus will usually be on the contexts of school and early childhood, but alternative sites of education will also be studied as appropriate. The definition of a challenging context will be considered with an emphasis on contexts of poverty. The unit explores engaging pedagogies and unit will investigate specific dilemmas for education. The unit will be structured around dilemmas and specific provocations.
