EUB102 Teaching in New and Emerging Educational Contexts

Unit synopsis

This unit introduces you to the complex relationship between our education system and the social and cultural contexts from which it emerges. You will use socio-cultural and sociological theory to better understand those you will come to teach, as well as how learners' diverse backgrounds, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, shape their experiences with the modern school/site, often in very different ways.  In this unit, you will develop reflective and critical understandings of the socially, culturally and historically constructed nature of education and care, and be able to identify the social identities and structures influencing contemporary early childhood, primary, middle and senior school contexts.
