This unit aims to support a place-based learning experience such as the Global Education Program to develop an in-depth understanding of place, culture and how context influences curriculum and teaching practices. Students are challenged to critically reflect on their emerging teacher identity, positionality in the world and preconceptions of places and people. This reflection is in conversation with broader notions of social (and spatial) justice, equity, values, and power. An aim is to develop the reflective teaching practices and competences required for respectful intercultural understandings, engagement and dialogue.  Students design, implement and evaluate teaching strategies, resources and educational programs that are responsive to the learning needs of diverse learners from different cultures, communities and/or contexts.
