In this subject students will extend their consideration of some of the issues addressed in EDU5ISA and further develop their understanding of curriculum development and implementation; the teacher and the law; and indigenous issues in education. These issues will be considered through the lens of the national professional standards for teachers (AITSL, 2011), with the focus on the development and presentation of a comprehensive professional e-portfolio structured around these standards.
