Content

Students will investigate some traditional and modern approaches to understanding the way people learn in educational institutions, in the workplace, and in everyday activities. Each of the approaches is based on the assumption that knowledge is developed by individuals and groups through social interaction. Participants will be required to engage with a central core of theoretical ideas and then will be asked to relate one of these to an area of their own interest and workplace needs. The unit caters for educators and trainers from across all sectors, as well as some specific school curriculum areas. Access to a computer, and the internet are required to complete this unit.

Assessment

The two assignments total 6000 words or equivalent. Creative presentation will be encouraged.
The first assignment will focus on the core material (40%) and the second on an application of one learning theory to a specific learning context (60%).
