About this Unit
In 2010 this unit replaced by 101641 - Diversity, Social Justice and Equity. This unit examines socio-cultural and political aspects of teachers' work, teacher's subjectivity, the curriculum, learning and schooling generally, and their intersections with inequality, diversity and difference. Of particular importance is the need to understand socio-cultural diversity and its manifestations and influences on schooling experiences, and to deconstruct its relationship to broader social discourses and ideologies. The unit provides understanding of the theory and practice of working with diverse communities and aims to develop critical reflexive practitioners, actively facilitating educational transformation through socially just pedagogies and practices.
