The factors that influence students' educational experiences and outcomes, including for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, are also important lessons you will learn. By graduation, you'll understand what it means to be a professional, ethical and quality educator in the 21st century with an informed knowledge of diversity and social justice.
