Building on the concepts and understandings in EDG2000 Design for Learning, this course will expand on the exploration of whole-site and individual-educator approaches to the establishment of inclusive learning environments. Awareness of how particular sites respond to particular features of their socio-cultural communities is explored through the lens of a social justice approach to meet the needs of diverse groups in contemporary education and community locations. Students will be required to demonstrate competence in constructing and implementing long term plans and associated assessment activities and procedures for the educational program in which they are involved. The skills, attitudes and behaviours that promote effective relationships and collaboration will be identified and practised. The course provides for 25 days of professional attachment to an identified school.
