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.
