Participants in this unit will explore the diverse profile of Australian university students and reflect on the profiles of their own student groups. Participants will consider the backgrounds of their students, how university study features in their lives, and what the consequences of this are for engagement with university learning contexts and assessment practices. Through engagement with research literature, audiovisual materials and online discussions, participants will consider how university teaching environments (content, pedagogy and assessment) might cater for groups such as straight-from-school students, mature-aged students, parenting students, international students, Indigenous students, and students with disabilities.
