This unit helps you to explore dual professionalism in relation to tertiary teaching in vocational education and the influence of the organisational strategies and priorities of your employer on your own work context.

The unit is split into three modules –the first of these modules introduces you to the dual role of a tertiary educator.

The second module in this unit will help you explore the influences on your work context and identify the organisational strategies and priorities of your employer. The 3rd module will explore how those strategies and priorities impact upon and are incorporated into your teaching practice.
