LEARNING DIFFERENCES AND PEDAGOGY
Credit points: 15
The focus in this subject is on the areas of learning differences and learning disabilities. Issues such as poverty, homelessness and substance abuse are investigated, particularly as they relate to school responsiveness and pedagogy. Particular areas of high incidence difference, such as Austism Spectrum Disorder, are selected for attention. The complex nature of learning disabilities is also analysed. School and teacher responsiveness to difference is analysed, including individualised learning plans and approaches to differentiating the curriculum.
