Course Description: This course provides students with an understanding of how society, culture, and education interrelate. The course uses current research and sociological theory to understand Australian education within a global context, examine the impact of relevant government policies for schooling, and to understand the interaction of sociological factors in relation to student outcomes. Students need to demonstrate an understanding of how a variety of social and cultural characteristics may impact learning, including socioeconomic status, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background, ethnicity and cultural background, gender, geographic location and school type. To demonstrate their understanding students are required to engage with both sociological data and critique, utilizing a range of verbal, non-verbal and ICT resources, and teaching strategies.
