Description This subject focuses on equity and social justice issues in diverse communities and educational settings. It explores a range of contemporary theoretical frameworks and pedagogical approaches that will develop students' understandings about the social construction of difference, identity and subjectivity within social, historical and political contexts. A critical awareness of the intersections between language, knowledge, power and discourse provides students with theoretical knowledge and practical analytical tools. Students will analyse and deconstruct inequalities and subjectivity in personal and professional contexts. They will apply this critical understanding to interrogate educational policies, programs, and services, and develop effective teaching and learning strategies for diverse and multilingual learners, including English as an Additional Language/Dialect and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners.
