BIG IDEAS IN CURRICULUM, POLICIES AND PEDAGOGIES
Credit points: 15
How are foundational ideas about curriculum, education policies and pedagogies changing in ways that support desirable social change and sustainable futures? Students investigate debates and relationships between curriculum and: philosophy, pedagogies, learning and policies. These theory-rich foundations provide scope for professionals to develop ideas for their own contexts in analytical and meaningful ways to inform their work as researchers and educational practitioners.
