Subject outline

This subject draws together theories, models and student experiences from across the course, inviting students to design an action research intervention that is based on evidence documented through research literature and practice. The subject content is concerned with the interactions between a teacher, students and the learning environment in generating a strong understanding of research-and evidence-based teacher practice. Students explore the relationship between research, teaching and learning across with a specific focus on the priority areas of literacy and numeracy, with a focus on developing a deep understanding on how teachers can demonstrate their impact on student literacy and numeracy learning, reflecting on how they can implement these understandings into future teaching practice-knowledge and activity.
