About this Unit
In 2010 this unit replaced by 101587 - Teaching in New Times. This unit aims to directly challenge students to inquire into, reflect upon and subsequently develop classroom pedagogies and assessment practices that work towards socially just learning outcomes in new times and new teaching environments. It introduces students to contemporary theories and practical frameworks that open up opportunities for them to take individual responsibility for translating syllabus documents into teaching and learning experiences that encourage learners of all social and cultural backgrounds to have engaging and productive relationships with education, schools and classrooms.
