This course is designed to develop students knowledge and response to specific needs of diverse learners. Examining legislative requirements and how they align with, or challenge, social, cultural and political contexts, students will explore the meaning and understanding of diversity. With a focus on the development of practical approaches to address student strengths and abilities, this course examines inclusive approaches to learning and teaching such as Differentiation, Universal Design for Learning and Personalised Learning. Students will expand their skills in effectively designing meaningful learning plans which incorporate clear assessment of learner strengths and needs, associated SMART goals and personalised strategies for growth and development. Students will undertake an assessment task related to their chosen area of primary or secondary specialisation.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
