Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
Critically examine factors related to culture, language, identity and history influencing students’ learning and behaviour in educational settings
Critically examine the issues and national and state data relating to the experience of students from diverse backgrounds – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander; cultural; socio-economic; religious; rural or remote - in terms of access to, participation in, and success within the Australian education system
Evaluate current national and state legislation and educational policies aimed at improving access, participation and success within the Australian education system for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students; students from different religious and socio-economic backgrounds; rural and remote students; and students from non-English speaking backgrounds and refugee circumstances, and assess their implications for the profession
Develop a deep understanding and efficacy around the attitudes and cultural competencies required of teachers to provide culturally safe and inclusive learning environments for learners from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and diverse cultural backgrounds, including the EAL/D dimension of their learning
Evaluate curriculum, and teaching, learning and assessment strategies that promote high expectations and success for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students; students from different religious and socio-economic backgrounds; rural and remote students; and students from non-English speaking backgrounds and refugee circumstances, and the skills required of teachers to successfully integrate these elements into their practice
Identify networks, organisations and personnel both within schools and in the wider community for the support of students from diverse backgrounds and the teachers who teach them
