Description This unit focuses on the role of the educator within a diverse, complex and changing society, including effective communication and professional collaborative relationships with children, families, practitioners and/or other professionals. It seeks to promote the importance of reciprocal and reflexive learning by positioning learning and effective teaching as highly dependent on the development of trust, rapport and critical understandings between individuals. In particular, the unit explores through an agency placement experience, social justice issues within educational contexts that may influence educational outcomes. It also provides a space to critically explore the nuances and subtleties of teaching and learning through individual and group interactions. This unit includes a placement requiring a minimum of 26 hours of work integrated learning and engagement in a community agency or educational setting. Mandatory requirements for this unit include Working with Children Check, anaphylaxis certification and Child Protection Awareness Training.
