Content

This unit explores and critiques the institutional and psychological discourses that influence and define learners in schools. The students will examine how different developmental and learning theories can be accommodated in the curriculum and classroom teaching, and become familiar with the literature and research underpinning these theories and begin to make links to pedagogical approaches. They will be able to apply these understandings to the development of their classroom management repertoire and the promotion of successful learning. Students will adopt a range of ways of seeing learners from the theoretical literature from this unit and will critique these through revisiting the place of their own beliefs and philosophical stance.
