EDU5703 Engaging Curriculum and Pedagogy

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts

The assumption regarding students enrolling in this specialisation is that they will have an understanding of curriculum and pedagogy from undergraduate programs and workplace experience. This course looks, then, to open up contemporary views of these topics for engagement by students. The course includes such ideas as public pedagogies, the politics of curriculum and pedagogy, sites and forms of curriculum performance, resistance and compliance, global and transformative practice and education, hope and social betterment. Key illustrative theorists whose work is surveyed include Paulo Freire, Henry Giroux, Peter McLaren and George Counts.
