EDED20493 - Diversity and Inclusion

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit develops your knowledge and understanding of legislation and policy related to inclusion in educational settings. You will examine representations of diversity and difference in contemporary Australian society and the ways in which stereotypes associated with marginalised groups are constructed and maintained. You will reflect on legislative and policy frameworks; explore ways in which personal assumptions, biases and value positions affect the “labelling” of students from diverse social, cultural and economic groups including students with disabilities; and, evaluate the impact of their own socio-cultural backgrounds and belief systems on creating inclusive settings. You will identify barriers to learning for diverse groups including culturally diverse learners and those with special needs and critique strategies for responding to and valuing diversity and promoting social inclusion in educational settings.
