This unit will critically analyse and synthesise assessment and planning practices, consistent with child-centred, play-based pedagogies and socio-culturally inclusive theoretical approaches. During this unit, students will question, investigate and critically reflect on the development of assessment and planning processes that incorporate different perspectives and understandings about teaching, learning and early childhood. This will be linked to the local and international curriculum documents. Students will deconstruct and contextualise principles of learning to develop programmes that constitute quality in early childhood teacher education in Australia’s increasingly complex social and cultural community.
