Explore the concept of worldview and the ways in which worldviews influence every facet of education. Students will consider the biblical worldview and examine its impact on teaching.

Understand the way in which Lave & Wenger’s classic theory of community plays out in a professional learning community in which all members engage, imagine and support in the pursuit of knowledge. With the recognition that learning cultures are context-specific and constantly changing and growing, students will reflect on ways to apply theories to current work or school environments.

Study and critique a range of pedagogical approaches for learning and best practice. Students evaluate their personal pedagogies and are encouraged to consider how their Christian faith influences their perspective.

Examine and critique decision-making practices based on data and research in the context of a Christian definition of student outcomes. Students are taught to use care and wisdom as they interpret research and evaluate current Australian data collection practices, acknowledging both the limitations and value of data-based decision-making. Digital and multimedia pedagogies, direct instruction and enquiry learning theories are discussed in depth.
