Unit description:

Seeks to support teachers to develop their own critical frameworks for analysing assumptions and practices and for recognising the strengths and omissions in current teaching methodologies. The unit encourages teachers and other professionals to reflect on and refine the strategies they use to assist their students to develop their literacy skills and to see this reflection as ongoing. It sees literacy as a continuing challenge because of its changes and developments which require on going analysis and examination in order to improve the learning outcomes of students.
