This stream is designed for teachers who have particular interest in language and literacy education. Students will have opportunities to extend their knowledge and understanding of current research related to literacy curriculum, pedagogy and assessment and explore ways to use this knowledge to lead and implement best practice literacy education in their school communities. This specialisation considers literacy from a sociocultural perspective and includes strong elements of multiliteracies, multimodality and metalanguage across the curriculum and across the school years, with an emphasis on the middle and later years of primary school and into secondary school.
