DESCRIPTION

This unit offers an introduction to curriculum frameworks and the associated range of pedagogies involved in teaching and learning. Curriculum documents are not value-neutral; they are constructed by people who have particular viewpoints/perspectives/ideologies about education and schooling, and are implemented in a 'context that is part of the social, political and economic structures of society' (Brady & Kennedy, 2003, p. 3). These viewpoints affect the 'what' of the curriculum (as in, what to teach) as well as the 'how' (as in, how to teach). Through this unit you will develop a capacity to think critically about the way curriculum is constructed, and the implications of this construction for your professional practice. This unit, therefore, is a mix of the theoretical and practical as it is important to come to an understanding that teaching happens within a broad social, political, and economic context. Throughout this unit, you will examine teaching strategies that fulfil particular purposes and apply that knowledge to specific classroom contexts.This unit aims to foster innovation, professionalism, collegiality and ethical and equitable practice in all students.
