This unit aims to advance students’ theoretical understanding of the social construction of difference as it relates to curriculum, assessment and program planning. It is designed to advance students’ understanding of teacher and learner identity through the lenses of conformity and diversity. This unit will explore concepts relating to inclusion and exclusion in educational settings. Models of personalised learning will be evaluated in terms of how they can identify needs and support learning in a range of diverse learners and educational contexts. Students will learn how to utilise a variety of assessment tools to plan for learning within a curriculum framework that aims to support all learners. Students will evaluate information using critical and analytical thinking and judgment to acquire key understandings of inclusive pedagogy and curriculum design. Features of collaborative planning and informed analysis of student profiles and assessment are used to ascertain strength-based teaching strategies and guide intervention. Students demonstrate that they can articulate the links between theory and practice by collaborating with peers, providing peer feedback and presentations based in recent and research informed evidence based.
