EDUC 7003EX - Classroom Voices, Contexts and Cultures

External - Semester 2 - 2015

Moving away from policy studies and school rhetoric, this research-based course will canvass aspects linked to learners in their learning environment. Initially the history of the classroom will be outlined. Other issues which will be developed are class, gender, race and religion in past and current classrooms. There will be an opportunity to investigate student and teacher voice from classrooms, the community as a classroom, and the influence of architecture on classroom learning and teaching. In addition, classroom cultures and cliques, and their psychological and sociological ramifications will be examined. The course will focus on the emergence of new research methodologies and the possibility of using an interdisciplinary approach in the examination of these issues.
