This unit is an introduction to the nature of education with a specific focus on learning and teaching. This unit will also engage students with some of the theoretical work of ‘identity’ and how this relates to the discipline of education. It demonstrates the multiple and complex ways that teaching and learning are constructed in the community, in schools and society. This unit will require students to examine and explore the relationships between their ontological, axiological and epistemological beliefs. The unit will require students, individually and collaboratively, to position these beliefs against the broader purposes of schooling.
