In this topic students will be oriented to the concept of education and teaching and their role as a teacher. Education is considered in a broad sense, encompassing a range of settings from Early Childhood through Primary and Secondary to Tertiary educational contexts. The topic acknowledges the historical and political aspects of education and teaching. The topic provides an introduction to the education awards and acknowledges that education is differentiated across race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ability, class and location. As the influences on educational contexts change across time, then so do teaching and learning contexts. The changing face of these contexts is explained through the process of globalisation. The issue of teacher identity and the teaching profession are explored through these key educational issues.
This topic aims to develop:
an awareness of the move from student to teacher in educational settings
an awareness of different philosophies and aims of education
an awareness of different educational contexts
an awareness of the context of teaching demands in educational contexts
early skills in Critical thinking
foundational skills for university study
an `Educational Vocabulary'
an awareness of social, cultural, and individual difference
