About this Unit
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. Students will undertake a critical analysis of policies and practices that impact and respond to challenging contexts. The unit is structured around the investigation of dilemmas and specific provocations, and explores engaging pedagogies for education.
