Contemporary Educational Issues ESG700

Launceston

Note:

This unit will only be offered subject to sufficient enrolment numbers.

Introduction

Educators at all levels and in all sectors and contexts are increasingly facing more externally imposed policies in areas such as accountability, assessment, curricula and pedagogical modes. It is important in this turbulent context that educators are able to respond to these policy and practice requirements as professionals. This Unit will provide students with the opportunity to complete a thorough and critical review of selected contemporary issues in educational theory, policy and practice. Students are encouraged to explore issues specific and relevant to their professional interest and experience.
