This unit will build on previous education units and discipline based units to provide an opportunity to explore and analyse educational needs across classroom teaching contexts. This unit looks at ways of researching one's own practice, recognising personal and systemic gaps in knowing, and using contemporary literature in a critically reflective process to build a professional learning journey. It also offers a research opportunity to develop professional teaching practices. A career in teaching involves continued learning, both to keep abreast of new developments and to sharpen and expand one's own ability as a teacher.
