Subject Area: Education

In this course, you will be introduced to key issues in learning and teaching. The course is divided into three sections: language, literacy and numeracy; social, psychological and emotional factors; and curriculum and pedagogy. In the first part of the course you will engage in substantive thinking about how language, literacy and numeracy are associated with students' backgrounds and impact student learning. In the second part of the course, you will examine what you and your students bring to the classroom in terms of socio-cultural and ability backgrounds, biases and assumptions, and mindsets, and how these may impact teaching and learning. In the third part of the course, you will examine curriculum and pedagogy, and its association with teaching and learning. By the end of the course, you will be able to design a lesson plan in your method area that addresses the needs of students across a variety of areas: language, literacy, numeracy, social, psychological, and emotional.
