EDN610 Professional Dialogues in Education

This unit develops understanding of what it means to be an innovator and a leader in a contemporary professional context. The unit is underpinned by the notion that innovation means being more critical, being open, being able to engage with greater uncertainty and complexity, and being able to learn from the past and from a broad range of contemporary ideas in order to manage the future. You are encouraged to undertake a disciplined inquiry into educational problems and issues through reflection on your own professional contexts and guided close reading of scholarly works about the big debates in education. This unit supports the development of a learning agenda that will inform directions for your study in the course as you develop your personal area of interest and work collaboratively with others in the development of that agenda. The unit also provides opportunities for learning through online technologies.
