This unit prepares students for innovative and entrepreneurial educational activity within schools and communities. Entrepreneurial activity is interpreted as 1) contributing to the knowledge society, 2) evaluating engaging and meaningful learning activity within classrooms and communities through educational research, and 3) initiating innovative and rewarding teaching and learning programs that draw on a future orientated, informed educational knowledge base.
