The content of this unit focuses on the contemporary emphasis of quality educational opportunities for all learners. The subject matter is chosen primarily for practicing professional educators who are involved in the daily challenges and complexities of catering for individual learners within diverse student populations. The processes of planning and implementing individual education programs (IEPs) supporting students with diverse needs are explored to develop understandings of how these programs can be incorporated into inclusive classroom contexts. The emphasis in this unit is to understand that IEPs are more than a document but part of a process that can influence and change pedagogy and related curriculum implementation. Subsequently, assessment for learning and strategies for teaching diverse student populations will be critically analysed.
Students will also consider the value of key stakeholders including families and students as partners in developing individual and personalised learning processes. The inter-related components of an IEP building on students’ current competencies, identified strengths, inclusive goals and assessment for further program planning are integral features of the content of this unit. Emphasis is also placed on the contribution of new knowledge promoting change that drives practice and the work of educators in the field through engaging in preliminary research and on-line discussion reflecting this research.
