Students in this course will examine contemporary educational issues that teachers face in practice in classrooms, schools, and communities. Students will unpack problems of practice using multiple theoretical and practice-based lenses. Issues of social justice, equity, diversity, tangata whenuatanga, and the ecological and cultural aspects of schools and schooling will be the central focus of the course, with student-directed topics also being explored. Positioning the teacher as researcher will allow students to explore varying approaches to educational research.
