An exciting feature of the new undergraduate courses at UWA is the introduction of broadening units.
Experience education in your undergraduate degree by taking our units as electives or broadening units:
This unit provides students with knowledge of diverse learning processes and theories in a lifelong learning perspective, with the objective of improving students' understanding of approaches to and practices of learning. The content includes psychological and sociocultural influences on learning, learning styles and modalities and use of learning technologies. Students have the opportunity to apply their knowledge to the facilitation of their own learning or the learning of others, in diverse contexts, including opportunities for community service through tutoring.
This unit familiarises students with leading ideas and debates about education in a knowledge era, and also how individuals in different social circumstances are positioned differently in their learning journeys and why.
