Synopsis

This course requires students to engage with an international selection of the studies that focus on system level dimensions of the profession (e.g. ethics, rights of the child, quality aspects, global indicators, equity, investment strategies, codes of practice, professional membership), exposing students to contemporary policy debates, highlighting approaches to ethical engagement, and support global citizens to evaluate how best to take a socially just professional stance. Principles of evidence-based study are applied to extend and deepen the analysis of ECE contexts, curricula and pedagogies in diverse settings.
