Understanding Diverse Learners (7750EDN)

This course is framed by the Griffith Dimensions of Learning and Teaching. It facilitates a synthesised understanding of the influence of social and cultural context on young people's lives and learning, and the implications for education and for teaching. Preservice teachers engage in and critically consider pedagogical principles that respond to the diverse and complex interests and abilities of young people, and apply these in an early stage 15 day professional experience placement in schools. The course consists of two non-graded assessment items one of which includes the school based professional experience component. Students must have successfully completed or be completing 7164EDN, 7111EDN and 7113EDN when enrolling in 7750EDN. These courses build an important foundation for this course and professional experience placement requirements. Preservice teachers must reach an 80% threshold for tutorial attendance and active participation in the lead up to placement and follow on from placement for all Professional Experience courses
