A Knowledge and Learning minor offers students the opportunity to examine the ways in which differing forms of knowledge are constructed, produced, managed, and disseminated – and the learning processes which support this in a range of social, historical and political contexts. A key focus of the subjects in this sequence is an engagement with the production, transmission and reception of knowledge. This minor is jointly taught by teaching staff in the Faculty of Arts and Melbourne Graduate School of Education.
