Unit Code: EDU702

Unit Title:ย Contemporary Issues in Education

EDU702 explores the historical, structural, socio-economic, technological and natural disaster issues that impact education in general and particularly on teaching and learning in the classroom. It is hoped that teacher trainee will develop a broader understanding of factors, perspectives and structures that influence their practice and therefore will be able to make informed decisions particularly on matters that affect their teaching and studentโ€™s learning. This unit is therefore designed to prepare pre-service and in-service teachers undertaking the Bachelor of Teaching Secondary and Graduate Diploma in Education courses to enhance their knowledge, skills and understanding of selected educational issues on a broad global basis as well as on a regional (South Pacific) and national level.
