TEACHERS UNDERSTANDING SELF AND OTHERS

EDU1USO

2015

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Students explore opportunities to develop and reflect on their attitudes and behaviours towards their own and other people's social, emotional, environmental and psychological health and overall well-being in a change environment. Through collaboration and effective communication students reflect on their personal capacities and attributes of meaning-making, coping, and resilience as applied to their past and future learning. In team activities students will resolve complex problems and analyse and theorise the interrelationships between these and their own learning processes. They will consider the implications for flexible and creative pedagogy and of well-being for the teacher and the learner.
