Applied learning is an approach that contextualizes learning in a way to empower and motivate students, whilst developing the key skills and knowledge required for employment, further education, and active learner participation in their communities. It involves students and teachers in partnerships and connections with individuals and organisations outside of the traditional learning environment, and recognizes that there may be multiple pathways to the desired learning goals. This subject will identify applied teaching and learning strategies (e.g. case studies, problem-based learning etc,) and explore their theoretical underpinnings and ways of thinking, being and doing required for effective learning.
In this subject, students will utilize the applied learning principles to scrutinize their own educational situation, propose alternative teaching and learning approaches, and subject these proposals to subject peers for critical feedback. A presentation to peers and work colleagues will provide the opportunity to both demonstrate learning and understanding, and share new perspectives on educational practice in an authentic setting.
