Teaching Organisation

Building on concepts introduced in IEAC133 Attitudes and Inclusion, this unit explores in greater depth the nature of family life. This unit is based upon the notion of knowledge as a construction. Students will be encouraged to explore personal constructions of knowledge about families and disability as well as exploring both the constructions of others, including parents and siblings, and theoretical constructions. Students will be encouraged to draw upon their own understandings and experience as well as to undertake individual/group work to generate possible and relevant solutions to key issues.
