Central to this unit is the focus on engaging students for learning. The unit explores the concept of diverse learners and the complexity of learning in the act of designing engagement for learning. This unit investigates contemporary learning theories and the interplay with teaching and learning and the relationships that are nurtured as a consequence. The unit reflects critically on the multi-faceted challenges of the 21st century classrooms where the teacher is required to understand and examine their own teacher beliefs and how these are shaping their classroom landscape and the learning of their students; and in some cases, the need to explore how to change their teacher beliefs and/or practices to support the development and learning of their students.
