Unit description and aim

At a time of rapid ongoing change as a result of globalisation, internationalisation and the continuing development of information communication technologies, the ability of educators and allied professionals to develop advanced knowledge, integrated understanding and expert skills in new and emerging domains is of critical importance. Therefore, the aim of this "shell" unit is to provide flexibility to utilise the occasional presence of visiting lecturers or to provide cohort groups with special study arrangements; additional topics that contribute to the outcomes of the Graduate Certificate in Education or the Master of Education, which are not presently covered within the existing units. As required, this generic unit outline for a special studies unit will be fully developed and approved by FEA Faculty Board before the special studies unit is offered.
