Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Education

Within a framework of contemporary theories of learning, participants in this course will investigate concepts of lifelong, life-wide and connected learning. Underpinning these characteristics and imperatives for learning futures lies a diversity of cultural, social and philosophical experiences and expectations. Students will explore issues of multiliteracies, cultural diversity/cultural convergence, inclusivity and sustainability as well as how these impact in pluralist learning environments. This course facilitates students' understandings of how these theories and issues impact on curriculum, instructional strategies, assessment and evaluation with particular reference to adult, professional and workplace learning contexts.
