EDUC 6550 - Educational Policy Studies

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2015

The history of education and the history of educational philosophy will be introduced and analysed. The impact of history on educational policy in schooling, training and/or higher education will be examined with a view to understanding current policy and its impact on education in contemporary times and in the future. Policy will be critiqued through a number of frameworks with a view to understanding the complex relationship between policy and practice and the implications for educators at the level of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.
