Module 1 review

Values, culture and identity

Our values, culture and identity are all closely intertwined.

This topic will have provoked you to question the assumptions underpinning your perceptions of cultural identity, and reflect on how this may impact on your pedagogical choices.

This topic provides the opportunity to reflect on your own values with your peers in a supportive and inclusive educational space. You may have been challenged to reflect on and explore your views, biases, actions and reactions to consider how our values, culture and identity relates to a reconciled nation.

Questions for review:

  • Were you challenged by reflecting on your values? Reflect on why/why not.
  • How do see your values impacting on your pedagogical choices?
  • Do you see a relationship between your values and a reconciled nation?
