Subject outline

In this subject students develop an understanding of teachers' and educational institutions' responsibilities for positively building on student diversity. Pre-service teachers become familiar with the varied resources that students bring with them, and the specific challenges that different individuals and groups confront in educational settings. Pre-service teachers explore innovative ways of maximising the educational experience and achievements of high performing students, students with learning difficulties and disabilities, as well as students from both rich multilingual and limited literacy backgrounds. Using a wide variety of technologies and means of communication, pre-service teachers learn how to engage with the whole school community, including parents, to identify and respond to the needs of the students. 20 days of practicum in an educational setting is undertaken as part of this subject.
