The subject will form part of the Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching (Teach for Australia) and will focus on issues of pedagogy, curriculum, school culture and change and how they relate to increasing student achievement in challenging school settings. This subject will build on more general work done in the first year of the course to focus specifically on addressing low student achievement and engagement at the level of the individual school student, but also at the school level. The subject will be taught through a combination of face-to-face intensive mode (seminars, workshops and lectures) and online mode (podcasts and discussions) during semester.
