Description

This course provides an introduction to foundational theories, concepts and processes in the study of education. The course explores theories about power, justice and fairness in society, with a particular focus on how they relate to education. It also examines what part factors such as class, genders and sexualities, disability, and race may play in maintaining unequal forms of education. An important feature of the course will be analysing the role played by education in the development of colonial relations between Maori and Pakeha , and how that continues to shape contemporary New Zealand society.

Additional Course Outline Information

Academic integrity

Dishonest practice is viewed very seriously and can bring punishments as severe as expulsion from the university. Be particularly careful not to plagiarise, to copy or to allow your work to be copied. These are all forms of dishonest practice. If you are uncertain about this, please consult an academic staff member.

Students should be familiar with the relevant regulations which are available here General regulations

Requests for extensions

Where unforeseeable and unavoidable circumstances prevent students from working, applications can be made for an extension to the due date for assessments. Applications should be sent to David Small and include the reasons for requesting the extension along with any supporting evidence such as a medical certificate.

Special Consideration

Where, for reasons beyond their control, students are prevented from completing an assessment or suffer significant impairment, they may apply for what is known as “special consideration”. This is a formal process the details of which can be found here Special consideration
