This course is for all teachers and leaders in early childhood, primary and secondary education contexts.

Culturally responsive pedagogy: What does this mean? How will my teaching style change? How does all this link to the key documents? Why do I need to work smarter not harder?

At this course there will be opportunities to grow your capability to:

  • Demystify how the curriculum documents reflect cultural responsiveness;
  • Evaluate and defend the meanings of practice-based evidence, particularly as it applies to cultural settings;
  • Apply critical thinking to culturally responsive practices;
  • Position practices, policies and contentions of culturally diverse imperatives that co-exist within and alongside a range of theoretical exemplars;
  • Link the six new standards for the teaching profession to learning outcomes and evidence for your portfolio.
