This unit provokes teachers to think about their crucial role in working within a heterogeneous classroom—a classroom that encompasses all students regardless of the labelling they may have acquired (e.g. physical impairments, specific learning needs, mental health or behavioural issues, gifts and/or talents, cultural and linguistic Diversity (CALD), or low socio-economic background). The unit is designed to advance students’ understanding of learners’ needs while acknowledging relevant historico-cultural, political and social contexts pertaining to the design and delivery of curriculum and assessment that encompasses the strengths of every student.

In EIE702 students will reflect on their role as educators of diverse learners while considering the appropriateness of school-based programs and services to support their pedagogy. They will critically analyse the literature, theories and practices in Australia and abroad pertaining to individualised planning for diverse learners, and principles of differentiation for specific school contexts and learner needs, interests and backgrounds. They will design curriculum and assessment that cater to individual needs within inclusive contexts by drawing on research-based pedagogical approaches that provide for effective differentiation.
