Content

This unit draws on contemporary knowledge of diversity of student learning needs and the teaching and learning of new and traditional literacies. In contemporary classrooms, diversity is increasingly appreciated in terms of the funds of knowledge students bring to learning and the desirability of student voice. In the contemporary communications environment, the nature of texts and meaning-making is being altered by new technologies requiring expanded definitions of literacy.Through the use of core and elective materials, this unit involves participants in investigating ways in which teachers can engage the diverse students they work with in developing new and traditional literacies. Core materials engage participants with current debates, issues in the field, teaching strategies and resources and emphasise the importance of drawing on students' strengths and funds of knowledge, empowering them through a range of literate practices. Through engagement with elective materials, participants select an area of specialisation and employ research skills to self-source materials related to their selected area. They may focus on developing ways of engaging and teaching literacies to students with particular educational needs or  choose to investigate a literacies related issue. Within the selected specialisation, participants research, develop, implement and reflect on a school-based application of their learning.
