This subject is the introductory core subject to the course. It will introduce students to perspectives and purposes of education. This will include a consideration of these perspectives and purposes in relation to the cultural, social, physical and cognitive development of children and adolescents. In particular, an emphasis will be placed on a critical analysis of how the perspectives on education and human development influence learning and teaching in contemporary Australia.
On completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. explain the relation between human development and the development of educational theory;
2. identify the assumptions which underlie the various perspectives of education and their associated theories of learning;
3. critically analyse the issues involved in teaching as a profession.
Up to 5 hours / week.
