The purpose of this unit of study is to give students the opportunity to recognise, analyse and assess various theories related to learning and teaching, and to consider the implications and relevance these theories have for classroom practice. The unit will provide students with an opportunity to explore a range of learning theories formulated by people such as Piaget, Vygotsky, Skinner, Rogers and Bandura. Their theories all have implications for teachers, and have informed a number of teaching models in use in schools today. Students will also trace the history of learning and teaching theory that has its foundations in Aboriginal pedagogies, often referred to as both-ways education. Students will be encouraged to think about their role as Indigenous educators in contributing to, and further developing existing learning and teaching theories in schools.
Available only to students enrolled in the Diploma of Education (Aboriginal)
