About this Unit
This is the second of two units emphasising contemporary practices in pedagogy to develop a sense of teaching as a profession through reflection on practice. Students deconstruct and critique curriculum and issues of quality pedagogy impacting on diverse groups in secondary contexts. Key themes include oral, aural, visual and written literacy as mechanisms for curriculum area learning; communication increasingly undertaken through the application of ICT, linking of assessment and reporting to classroom teaching and learning and critical reflection as a foundation for self-evaluation. Throughout the unit a curriculum design approach will inform student learning and scaffold discussion.
