EDFD467 Wellbeing and the Development of the Whole Person
“Schools play a vital role in promoting the intellectual, physical, social, emotional, moral, spiritual and aesthetic development and wellbeing of young Australians” (MYCEETYA, 2008). This unit explores how teachers and schools can develop an integrated approach to the education and development of the whole person. All of the experiences school students have influence their wellbeing and development. Learning within and between the disciplines, and personal and interpersonal learning each play a part. The unit focuses on the school culture and environment, teaching and learning (both explicit and implicit), the links between school, home and community, and the contribution of all of these to student wellbeing and the development of the whole person.
