This unit will develop students’ understandings of the effect on children’s learning of developing effective partnerships with families, children and other professionals in early childhood education settings and schools. It will examine partnership from theoretical perspectives and investigate partnerships that are created and the components that are integral in shaping effective collaboration. Models of partnership will be deconstructed and critically analysed to develop students’ understandings of the role of the teacher in leading collaborative relationships. The students will develop their own understandings of the communication, cultural competencies and leadership skills they can apply to form partnerships. This will incorporate critical self-reflection to explore their own values and beliefs about teaching and learning.
