This unit provokes teachers to think about their role in working within a heterogeneous classroom—a classroom that is dependent on a fine-grained balance of nuanced knowledge and practice to support inclusive development. These include educational policies and obligations, learner needs, school and community-based services and programs, accessible technologies, and pedagogies of differentiation. The unit is designed to advance students’ understanding of learners’ needs while acknowledging relevant historical, cultural, political and social contexts pertaining to the design and delivery of curriculum and assessment that encompasses the strengths of every student. Through summative assessment tasks, teachers will conceptualise how the heterogeneous classroom functions to support inclusion in their professional context, before considering individualised planning, curriculum and assessment design, and collaborative practice. All teachers are expected to participate in a paired assignment to complete an aspect of the unit mark, upon which they will have opportunity to critically reflect to consider how collaboration shapes teacher practice.
