This unit aims to advance students’ theoretical understanding of the social construction of difference as it relates to lifelong learning. It is designed to advance students’ understanding of teacher and learner identity via the concepts of conformity and diversity. This unit will explore concepts relating to inclusion and exclusion in a range of educational settings such as early childhood, primary and secondary schooling, further and higher education, and community settings. Theories and models of personalised learning will be evaluated for their fit to context in terms of how they can identify and support individual needs and learning across the lifespan. Students will evaluate information using critical and analytical thinking and judgment to acquire key understandings of inclusive pedagogy. Features of collaborative planning and informed analysis of learner strengths are emphasised to support the continuum of lifelong learning. 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.
