CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES IN CURRICULUM LEADERSHIP
Credit points: 30
In this subject students develop understandings of curriculum leadership by exploring curriculum theory, curriculum theories, leadership theories and practice and critical analyses of the socio-politics of education. Students are expected to develop and use a broad range of analytical tools and curriculum perspectives in order to analyse and critique curriculum policy and implementation decisions in national and international educational (or related) contexts. Students reflect critically upon their own understandings of leadership and curriculum, and relate these understandings to current research literature on particular issues within these fields of study. A key expectation in this subject is that students are to engage with multiple knowledges and practices to develop the capacity to challenge the status quo of curriculum leadership practice and the rhetoric of quality, accountability and educational reform as it is played out through curriculum.
