Classrooms without Borders

Classrooms without Borders builds professional teaching skills by enhancing pre-service teachers' understandings of the clientele with whom they will be professionally involved as teachers. The unit explores the criticality of ethical understandings and practices that may influence educational outcomes.  In particular, this unit focuses on inclusive educational settings for Aboriginal and Torres Islander children and communities, and the refugee learner. The unit seeks to promote the importance of reciprocal and reflexive learning by positioning learning and effective teaching as highly dependent on the development of trust, rapport and critical understandings between individuals.
